The Styles

Lower Sugar | To help with the hangovers, try a cider with a lower sugar content. They are usually free from artificial flavours and sweeteners.

Lower Carb | Like beer, cider has high levels of carbs, so if you’re conscious of this, opt for a low-cal option.

Sweet | With fresh, clean characteristics, sweet ciders have a slow fermentation, and the sweetness is derived from either natural sugars or added during production. Works with desserts and certain cheeses.

Semi Sweet | Not too sweet nor too dry, sweet ciders have a solid body and hearty fruit flavours, and finish with a little bit of sweetness from residual sugars left in the end product.

Dry | Dry ciders are fermented slower and for longer, and the majority of the sugar is converted into alcohol by the yeast, giving it that bitey finish. Goes well with savoury food!

Semi Dry | Refreshing, and appealing to most palates, they are easy to drink and are a versatile option for even those who aren’t usually cider drinkers.

Sparkling | A carbonated cider to give it a fizzy taste, primarily made from unfiltered apple cider.

Hard Cider | Stronger in alcohol volume, hard cider is trending among cider drinkers. Fermented for longer so the yeast consumes most of the natural sugars, hard ciders are generally higher in ABV– around 7%.

Pear Cider or “Perry” | Pear cider is less tart than apple cider, but sweeter. Perry is made using real juice from specific perry pears, while pear cider is made using everyday pears.
