The Mayor of Exeter was among the 282 happy drinkers who helped The Stable in Exeter smash the Guiness World Record for cider tasting in August.
Led by Dan Heath, founder of lead Stable supplier The Cider Box, cideristas crammed the venue’s three floors to taste the eight contenders on the Stable Cider of the Year shortlist.
The record before this attempt, held by The Oast House in Manchester, stands at 255 people, so they had lots of thirsty supporters to beat this, and make it into the history books.
The host of the evening Dan Heath from The Cider Box says,
“We’re totally thrilled. The world record is back where it belongs – at home in Cider Country. It was a dream of ours and we’re grateful to everyone who joined in and helped make it a delicious, cidery reality. Plus, we raised money for a very worthy charity and had a laugh doing it. Saturday was a winning day!”.
