Norfolk Cider

Description

The Norfolk Cider Company (who also own Norfolk Apple Juice Limited) established in 1987, are now the oldest established cider makers in Norfolk, following the closure of William Gaymer and Sons, where one of our staff worked. They continue a tradition in Norfolk that stretches back to at least 1204.

Ciders

Cider made traditionally in the Eastern region comes from culinary and dessert apples, and is quite different from the West Country, where cider apples are used. It lacks the astringentcy of West Country ciders, and is more like an apple wine. It can be a little stronger too, at 7.5%, with more natural sugars in the dessert apples to convert into alcohol - but has lower tannin levels, making it 'easier on the head' than its West Country cousins.

Over the last 18 years the Norfolk Cider Company has won several regional awards and is a past CAMRA National Runner Up
