About Real Cider & Perry

Cider has never been a more popular drink. Recent polls suggest that cider is now the most popular drink in the UK - more so that beer or wine. But what do 'they' mean by cider? Certainly there has been an increase in the popularity of cider; the peaktime advertising and promotion of brands such as Magners and Bulmers have meant that it is suddenly 'cool' to drink cider. But beware! Just as there is a difference between gassy cask beers and real ales, so there is also a vast difference between those fizzy ciders best served 'over ice' and real ciders and perries.
