The Cider League

Here are all the ciders we have reviewed so far on the show.

We welcome any suggestions of cider to try, please get in touch.

Note: While most ciders we try are "proper", we've also reviewed a few non-proper ciders for comparison purposes. Non-proper ciders include: Magners, Bulmers, Merrydown, Jaques, Kopparberg, Rekorderlig, Carlsberg, Carling, Stella Cidre, Kingston Press, Brothers, Gaymers, Strongbow, Blackthorn, Thatchers Gold, Stowford Press etc. These are generally made using artificial industrial techniques, rather than by the traditional way of pressing apples.
