Of all the guest host I have had on #ciderchat Gidon Coll is the only one I have personally met. I met Gidon at Philly’s first cider fest Cider Core last autumn. Although it was pretty damn busy, we still were able to chat for a few minutes.
Gidon is a pretty damn cool bloke and really rocked the cider tent that afternoon. Gidon is the cider maker and owner for Original Sin Cider, a New York award-winning cider company that specializes in refreshing and traditional ciders since 1997.
I can’t say it better than this so I took a section of Gidon coll’s beginning cider history from Original Sin’s web site:
“Coll immersed himself in the history and the craft of cider. He experimented. He brewed batch after batch in a small upstate New York winery. He sought counsel from a local wine expert and from the owners, bartenders and patrons of bars he frequented in New York City’s Lower East Side and East Village. He collected feedback from everyone he knew, adjusting and tinkering with his cider’s flavor until it was clean, crisp, and practically perfect. Then he enlisted friends to painstakingly hand-label bottle after bottle. He lugged cases and cases in and out of NYC’s subways, delivering bottles to establishments of Manhattan and Brooklyn.”
30 states and 17 years later:
Join us as we get down and gritty with the man behind Original Sin Cider on Thursday 5/29/2014 at 6 pm PST / 9 pm EST. Just follow #ciderchat and tweet along for an hour of fun with Gidon Coll.
