The Oast House in Manchester has claimed the Guinness World Record for The Largest Cider Tasting Event.

The record was broken with the help of Aspall cider on Wednesday 6 September at 6pm when 255 people attended the tasting.

The tasting was led by New World Trading Company's (NWTC) Kieran Hartley, a beer and cider guru, Henry Chevallier Guild, an eighth-generation-owner of Aspall and an official Guinness World Records adjudicator. The participants sampled three tipples from cider makers Aspall, all free of charge.

“Manchester has always had a strong love of cider and this event was no exception in demonstrating support for Aspall, we had a fantastic turnout and easily smashed the Guinness World Records title,” said Hartley.

The New World Trading Company (NWTC) operates a range of brands including the Oast House (Manchester), the Botanist (Alderley Edge and Knutsford in Cheshire; Birmingham; Chester; Leeds; Manchester; Newcastle; Marlow, Buckinghamshire; Farnham, Surrey; Sheffield; Reading; and York), the Smugglers Cove and the Club House (both Liverpool) the Trading House (London) and the Canal House (Birmingham).
