Kent is the UK’s number one apple-growing region, with a perfect climate and rich soil for orchards to flourish. The proximity to London, a city perpetually thirsty for some fine cider helps too. Dessert and culinary apple varieties – so those you can eat and cook with – have always been the centre of production, unlike other regions that have focused on varieties developed purely for cider-making purposes. This gives Kentish Cider a white wine-like quality with fresh acidity, lighter colour, and a bright fruity character. At the moment, Kentish cider is on the rise, and new producers are proudly entering the cider trade with both modern and traditional Kentish Ciders.
