November 18th is National Apple Cider Day

 

Here are today’s five thing to know about Apple Cider:

  1. The cider industry uses 45% of all apples grown in the UK
  2. The UK cider industry grew nearly 200,000 tons of cider apples in 2010; Bulmers alone has 10,000 acres of cider apple orchards under its control
  3. There are more than 300 varieties of apples grown in the UK – all with the sole purpose of making cider
  4. Varieties include Foxwhelp, Brown Snout, Ball’s Bittersweet, Kingston Black, Merrylegs and Slack-ma-Girdle
  5. Cider apples are different from dessert apples in that they contain tannin, which is also found in coffee and red wine. It gives the cider a full-bodied flavor and drying of the mouth (astringency)
