2021 has been yet another crazy year, thank goodness we had cider. 19 new reviews plus 1 guest review. That might be a little lower than past years but cut me some slack, a little baby pippin slowing things down. Never the less out of all the great ciders I have drunk this year there were a top 5 best ciders of 2021.
I’ve been wanting to write about a Peckhams for a while. I’ve only tried one of them a few years ago, Unfortunately, travel is tough right now. But then I release that hey the up and coming cider social media star Marguerite is over in NZ and she is about to crack open a can of Peckham’s Farmhouse so here is Real Cider Reviews’ first-ever guest review.
The New Zealand Cider Festival is back for its second year in New Zealand’s Cider capital, Nelson. It will be held on 4 November at Founders Heritage Park, to coincide with the NZ Cider Awards (held on the 3rd). Described by National Geographic as “heaven for Cider seekers”, Nelson produces 60% of the country’s Cider due to its high concentration of cideries.
Continuing on the trail, hunting for New Zealand’s Craft Ciders, I found a can of Peckham’s Cidery – Alex’s Apple Cider. Whenever I spoke to a Kiwi about their ciders, the name Peckham’s came up again and again. Here’s hoping they live up to the hype.
