What is Cider? By definition: Cider /ˈsʌɪdə/ noun an alcoholic drink made from fermented apple juice. Cider can be known by many different names depending on where you are in the world, however some names which can describe the same product include: Cidre Apfelwein Cyder Sidra Suure Moscht
How is one Cider different from another? Cider has the same (some argue greater) depth of tastes and palletes as fine Wine. There are many factors which can influence the taste of a Cider, including: Apple Variety Yeast (for fermentation) Method of Fermentation Environmental Conditions Blending (the art of the Cidermaker)
For many years, Cider has been sold as Sweet, Medium, Dry or somewhere along that scale. This only goes so far in describing the attributes of Cider and other such factors such as Acidity or 'Body' can also be used in the same way as is with Wine.
