  • Sweet cider : Sweet cider is sweet and low in alcohol, with an alcohol content of between 1.2% and 4.5%.

  • Raw cider : Raw cider is dry and slightly acidic, with an alcohol content generally ranging from 4.5% to 7%.

There are no hard and fast rules for drinking cider, but here are some tips on how to get the most out of it:
  1. Temperature: Make sure the cider is at the appropriate temperature, either cool for sweet and fruity ciders, or slightly warm for drier, more robust ciders.

  2. Glass: Use a glass that is appropriate for the drink, such as a wine glass for drier, more robust ciders, or a beer glass for sweeter, fruitier ciders.

  3. Shaking: If the cider is served in a bottle, be sure to shake the bottle well before serving to stir up any particles that have settled to the bottom.

  4. Tasting: Take time to taste the cider, smell its aroma and describe its flavour.

  5. Pairing: Cider can be enjoyed on its own, but it can also be paired with a variety of foods, such as cheese, meat, fish and fruit.
