Well, That’s it, That’s 2019 done and dusted. Tonight is New Year’s Eve and there is a fine methode traditionelle cider in the fridge chilling for tonight. This is the time of year when I look back at The best Ciders of 2019 in an attempt to answer the question I all ways get asked: “What is your favourite cider?”
Naughty Nanna, you might have one. 3 Sons Cider certainly did. This newly released cider pays tribute to the 3 Sons grannie. The story goes, the boy’s nanna was not much of a cider drinker, but she did have a habit of nicking off with some of the fresh juice straight out of the press.
Fruit Ciders have been a growing segment of the cider market for a few years now. Much to the horror of Cider purists. While I tend to agree with them, there is a strong argument if people are drinking crappy fruit ciders why shouldn’t the craft Cidermakers get in there and show them how it’s done right.
2018, done and dusted. It’s time to look back at the Real Cider Reviews’ Best Ciders of 2018.
I’ve had a pretty amazing year from being asked to speak at the Australian Cider Conference in Baltow in May. July, I got to tick off a massive item off my bucket list when I packed up my bike and rode from Somerset to Herefordshire. More recently I moved out of the hustle and bustle of Sydney to the fresh air of Armidale in the north of the state. I bought a house with a big garden and within a month I had planted my first apple tree, more will follow. I don’t know where that project will end up but that is the exciting part.
