Bar Professionals Are Called to Enter Showerings Cider Cocktail Competition


September, London – London Cocktail Week is just around the corner, and this year, we’re inviting mixologists and bartenders to embark on a unique journey with Showerings Cider in the “Appley Ever After” cocktail competition.

WHAT TO EXPECT: Step into the world of apples and cider as Showerings Cider presents a cocktail competition like no other. “Appley Ever After” challenges you to unleash your creativity and showcase your mixology talents in an exciting battle of flavours. The twist? Cider takes centre stage as the main ingredient in your concoction.

Showerings is a new triple vintage cider produced in Somerset launched earlier this year. It is made with techniques requiring as much experience and attention-to-detail as those used in the creation of fine wines. Showerings aims to change the perception of cider and giving it a deserved place at fine dining tables. Crafted using apples from a single award-winning orchard in Somerset, the heartland of British cider making, Showerings is the next generation of British fine cider that has been created to enjoy across the seasons as an aperitif or as the perfect food companion.


The competition is free to enter with the final of the competition taking place on the 16th October at the infamous Nobu Hotel, 22 Portman Square, London, W1H 7BG  from 12:00 pm until 4:00 pm.
