Cider is extremely popular in the UK and has the highest consumption worldwide here. It is said that Somerset is the spiritual home of cider, due to the range of cider farms and breweries in the area and it is now the most loved drink in this county.
As you may or may not know, cider is the by-product of the fermented juice of apples. It remains a bit of a mystery as to when and where cider actually originated. However, France is one of the countries who produced cider en masse in the early days, when it started to replace wine. Apple tree growing definitely started during Egyptian times, so it is highly likely that cider make an appearance as far back as 1300BC.
One of the reasons cider has become so popular is all the different varieties you can now choose from. It is no longer just the standard apple flavour, you can now select from strawberry and lime, mixed fruit and a wide range of others. There are also a number of suppliers of cider, so we really are quite spoiled for choice when it comes to our love for cider drinking. These days, cider is popular with all ages.
