Cider has been part of the fabric of life in Somerset and parts of the West Midlands for centuries. Cider varieties of apple have been bred specifically for these regions. Roman and Norman invaders had both added to the original reservoir of fruit stock.

In Somerset labourer’s wages (or part of them) were paid in cider in until the Truck Act of 1887. For many people in the South West believed that cider had a religious significance and many of the keenest makers were monks. It was not unusual for babies to be christened in cider until the 15th century.
