Where exactly is cider country?

The best place to start is in Somerset

Somerset has the greatest number of registered farmhouse cider-makers in England. Most are found around the fringes of the Levels, a flat land of big skies and big floods wedged between the Mendips, Quantocks and Blackdown Hills. Certain areas produce particularly good cider, and in Somerset these are located around Wedmore, Glastonbury and Martock.

Enter Roger Wilkins

For a good introduction to traditional Somerset cider, call on Roger Wilkins (01934 712385), whose farm sits on a sheltered slope in Mudgley south of Wedmore. In the business for 45 years, Wilkins is a well-known character among Somerset producers and in his unkempt barn he offers nothing but traditional scrumpy from the barrel (medium or dry). In summer there’s often a gathering of locals enjoying a glass of the deliciously fruity cider while they wait to fill up their containers to take home.

Quote from The Independant

“Not a cider for the novice – a sip of Wilkins’ will put hairs on your chest. And those hairs will sprout hairs.”

Not an extensive list, but a good starting point on the quest for fabulous Somerset Cider
