This week’s episode is one of our favourites. Cider is perhaps the most misunderstood and underrated drink around, despite being the UK’s indigenous beverage. Often lumped in as an add-on to beer, cider is much more akin to wine. It’s the fermented juice of the apple and each apple variety that goes into it will go a long way towards determining its unique tastes and flavours.
We speak with Gabe Cook, AKA the Ciderologist. Gabe’s on a mission to change the UK’s perceptions of this this amazingly diverse drink and help us understand all the different styles available. Your challenge, listener, is to seek them out, so go get some cider inside your insides!
