I've just taken a phone call from a very confused gentleman who wanted to buy some apple juice from me.

Despite the London SE1 name, he seemed to think that he was speaking to the owner of an orchard in the West Country.

You should have sold him some James.

How about this Thursday 15th? Pommelers Rest or the Oak?

Although not a cider fan (though I once had a cat called Cider - don't ask), I thought you aficionados of the golden liquid may be interested in our experience on hols last week in Asturias, northern Spain. Best of all they serve it high at arms length - without looking at the glass! Makes it all bubbly. They only serve the amount of a large gulp at a time. 2 euros a bottle and all this performance at each serving. Cider heaven I would have thought.

I've never been to Asturia (whereabouts did you go? did you spend long there? was there much to see? I'm very interested to go one day), but have been to Asturian bars and restaurants in other parts of Spain.

The pouring thing is, as you describe, fantastic theatre (when one of the waiters does it) and a great ice-breaker (when I try to do it and spill it all over the bar floor, which no one seems to mind really).

Lucky you. Come and make some cider with us.

...if you press it, they will come.

Sooner the better (although recent track record of meeting in pubs is a bit poor for getting anything done) for me.

If we don't sort it out over the next week or two, then I think we'll be too late. I really want to do it again in SE1, but we're already half way through September and we have no apples, no press, etc.

Hopefully, if we have enough people who want to do it, then we can have a flurry of activity over the next week or two and get sorted.

Just a week traversing northern Spain from San Sebastian to Oviedo. Mountains, rich countryside, and beaches. Good food. These Siderias are great fun. Maybe you could set one up. Is there a purely Cider focused bar in London?
