What exactly is the definition of cider, you may be wondering. Cider is a delicious alcoholic drink made from fermented apples. Fruitier than beer, and sweeter than wine, it provides a light, refreshing and gluten-free alternative with an alcohol percentage of between 3% and 8.5% AVB. The drink is hugely popular in the UK, where we’re gluttons for all things apple related. More cider is consumed here per capita than any other country and the world’s biggest cider producers are located right here on our shores.
Because apples were so widespread throughout Europe, we don't know where exactly cider first originated. We do know that when the Romans first invaded Britain in around 55BC, they discovered that this irresistible drink was already being brewed here by locals. Later on, when the Normans invaded in 1066AD, new varieties of apple came with them, and soon afterwards cider played a central role in everyday life, being brewed by farms and monasteries all over the country. Getting the right apple for making cider was something of a genetic lottery until people began to purposely breed the most suitable ones for cider - i.e. the ones deemed not sweet enough to eat. We speak for every cider connoisseur when we say this: we’re sure glad they figured it out!
