May is Cider Month

As part of CAMRA's campaign to encourage more people to try a range of real ales, cider and perries, members are being encouraged to try a real cider or perry in May and to help support British orchards. May is a time when the apple and pear trees in our orchards are in blossom and, without the orchards and tree blossom, we wouldn't have the fruit to make the ciders and perries that are on offer throughout the year. Unfortunately, many of the old traditional orchards have disappeared over the years but, thankfully, in recent years producers have started to plant new trees to keep the tradition of cider and perry production alive. May is also the time when the juice that was pressed the previous year has fermented through and is ready to drink. Real ciders and perries let you taste the fruit used in their production in the final product, straight from the tree to the glass. If you are a publican who is organising a cider and perry event in May, know of something happening in the Branch's area, or want more information, please contact our Apple representative.
