Real Cider

CAMRA has produced a revised definition of real cider and perry to reflect the current practices and processes of cider and perry makers across the UK. The focus now is on cider and perry that is #NotFromConcentrate. You can find more information at

We currently have one dedicated Real Cider producer who are based in our branch area: SiDa of Macclesfield. Here is an article about them from Macclesfield Nub News:

There are also two producers who produce cider from donated apples, which are typically dessert varieties. There could be more variation of taste and availability.

There are a couple of other Real Cider producers who are based just outside our branch area: High Peak Cider based in Furness Vale and Dunham Press based in Dunham Massey.
