Nambawan Cider, Vanuatu’s only locally produced cider. In fact as far as i can tell it is the only cider available in Port Vila,

I just returned from a week in Vanuatu, so i thought i better tell you about the local cider with a quick little review. Nambawan Cider, pronounced ‘number one cider’, is made on the main island of Efate at the Namabawan Brewery.The Namabawan brewery produce a local the second most popular beer beer behind Tusker Beer, the Namabawan beer. The cider is made from Cider Apple Concentrate and water, with a dash of vitamins according to the back label. It’s an odd thing to say, but I thought it needed more water. The concentrate is very strong, tasting of over ripe apple and brown sugar. I think the cider was designed to be served over ice, but none of the bar staff were told this. When the ice was added and was given a moment to melt in the sunshine by the lagoon, the concentrate was tempered.
