First Biddenden Cider Express steaming success

img_0715On 2 September we teamed up with the Kent & East Sussex Railway to offer all our cider lovers an exciting steam train experience, and it was a huge success!

 

Over 120 people attended the Biddenden Cider Express evening special which departed from Tenterden Station and chugged a leisurely 21-miles across the beautiful Kent and Sussex countryside to Bodiam Station where there was a live band playing. For rail enthusiasts, the steam train was a 5-car Mk.1 set.

A selection of the Gribble Bridge wines were also made available along with Biddenden Red Love®, apple and pear juices.

 

Freshly prepared curry or bangers and mash were served on the outbound journey making it a perfect Friday evening out with almost all the cider being sold out by the end of the evening.
