Here are my top 5 reasons to make cider;

  1. Cider is a beautiful natural drink – no fuss, just 100% pure apple juice fermented slowly.
  2. Cider has a long rural tradition – so its good to keep those local skills alive and use the annual apple harvest.
  3. Cider production is eco-friendly – the sun to ripen the apples and it uses very low inputs of energy in production.
  4. Cider is inclusive – it suits a wide range of diets including gluten free and vegan.
  5. It’s annual – you do it only once a year so there’s plenty of time to enjoy it once it’s been bottled.
