The history of cider

From the first apple orchards, to its resurgence in modern craft cideries, cider’s history is a story of innovation, tradition, and deep connection to the land.

But it is not just a tale of apples and fermentation. It is a journey that has shaped communities, cultures, and the way we raise a glass to celebrate life’s moments.

It is also a tale of adaptation, with cider evolving alongside the changing tastes and technology of today’s modern world.

So, in this episode of the Food Matters Live podcast, we uncover the twists and turns in cider’s evolution, and explore the fascinating interplay between nature, science, and craftsmanship, that transformed the humble apple into a timeless libation
