“The perfect guide you need to find out about the apple, the orchard, the maker and blender – in short, CIDER” – Tom Oliver, Oliver’s Cider & Perry, Herefordshire
Cider is big news. Just as with craft beer and artisan gin, there’s a world of new brands and styles for the drinker to discover – but where to start?
In The Cider Insider, award-winning drinks writer Susanna Forbes has hand-picked 100 great ciders that are worth seeking out and drinking now. She offers a complete, accessible guide to the very best on the market, from single-varietals to vintage ciders and pear cider (perry, the ancient ‘new kid on the block’), and even ice ciders. The greatest cider-makers have honed their skills to a fine art – from Spain to Oregon, the world’s top ciders are now being appreciated as a versatile drink akin to the finest wines. Indeed, cider’s complex flavour profiles make it especially suited for drinking with a meal, and Susanna suggests food matches for each variety.
Featuring a comprehensive guide to taste, makers and varieties worldwide, and with a foreword by the UK’s Cider King, Tom Oliver, The Cider Insider is the first book of its kind to celebrate the wonders of the golden nectar.
