Our “Side-R” is Cider made only from apples grown within the county of Cambridgeshire.
Traditionally the county was always a major fruit growing region in the country for years supplying many of the superb apple varieties cooking and eating.
As the world shrank in the 1980’s and more and more foreign imports flooded into the country, the significance of the county’s fruit began to flounder. Many growers came out of fruit growing, ripping up the orchards and turning the land over to other, more profitable arable crops.
However, a few orchards survived and apart from a bit of resurgence in interest in traditional English Apple varieties, some people found a good business in Apple Juice and now Cider!
We think this may have started when people kept some of the juice a bit too long and it started to ferment!
