Cider is one of the most well-known alcoholic beverages made through fermented apple juice. While it was widely popular in the United Kingdom, its unique taste made it popular worldwide. Cider is often mistaken for Beer. It is also called the gluten-free alternative to the latter. However, both are different with separate characteristics.
Moving on to its other details, the UK is one of the largest producers of Ciders. They are also known for the world's highest per capita Cider consumption. The alcoholic beverage is also renowned in countries like India, Australia, Portugal, and Canada. In addition, some countries like Central Europe rendered a personal touch to the drink in the form of Apfelwein.
To avoid confusion, the US termed alcoholic Cider as hard Cider. This was to differentiate it from sweet Cider (common in the US). Hard Cider and sweet Cider are made from apples; however, the latter is free from alcohol.

How is Cider Made?
For centuries, the same process has been followed for Cider making. While it may sound straightforward, preparing the best blend is no child's play. It requires years of experience and proficiency to make these beverages.
The taste of Cider is variable, with the flavours lying within the sweet and dry range. It looks somewhat similar to Sparkling Wine, but the shade varies as per the brand. Cider may appear cloudy (along with sediments) or crystal-clear. It may come in a brown shade or look completely colourless. Both colour and clarity vary due to the pressing and fermentation process in their production.
Conventional producers generally make dark-coloured Ciders. These varieties tend to have a strong flavour of apple. Likewise, a lighter version of Cider is processed after traditional brewing. This method gives white colour to the end product and is termed white Cider. The ABV content in this drink is around 7-8%. The flavours, as compared to dark Ciders, are sweeter.
Ciders are made by pressing and fermenting the apples. It involves the following steps given below:
Preparation and Pulping
Apples are the primary ingredient of the Cider. In October, the best Apples are plucked, washed, and sterilised for their making. Any rotten apples, leaves, and debris are instantly discarded.
The chosen apples are then smashed and pulped thoroughly. This step is called pulping. It's either done by hand or through Scatter. The pulp is then transferred to the Cider press.
Pressing and Fermentation
The next step is pressing. It is performed in the Cider press where the apple juice is extracted. Once done, the liquid is transferred to plastic fermentation barrels for the fermentation process.
Cider preparation is fermented in barrels through wild yeast. On a large scale, producers use cultured yeasts in steel tanks. The yeast converts the simple sugars of the apples into alcohol. The fermentation occurs throughout the winter. Once summer arrives, the beverage is checked for its ABV content, clarity, and taste.
To ensure better taste, producers use an assessing process. Here, the fermenting Ciders are tasted to estimate the fermentation process. Producers also transfer the Cider to a maturation vessel to blend with old and matured Ciders.
The best thing about Cider is that you can incorporate its uncarbonated version in recipes. It makes an outstanding addition to dressing, glazing, and soups!
What are the Different Cider Styles?
