Modern British Cider

Cider is one of the world’s oldest drinks, with a heritage dating back at least 2,000 years. It has formed an integral part of the landscape, economy and culture of many rural parts of the UK for centuries.

Both beer and cider now face a new change in drinking landscape of Britain – the rise of ‘craft’ and modern, discerning drinkers with different needs, habits and spending opportunities.

Now is the time for CAMRA to produce a cider guide that sheds light on the incredible diversity that exists within cider in the UK today.
