I'm a huge fan of cider.  I love the crisp sparkling taste and slightly embarrassingly, I love that I can order it in a pub and it looks like I'm drinking a beer.  I don't like beer but I always feel a bit naff drinking wine in a pub.  Oh dear, over 30 and I'm still trying to be a cool kid.

Anyway, moving on from embarrassing confessions, my favourite cider maker is Rekorderlig.  This Swedish company makes a brilliant apple cider but they also got me hooked on pear and best of all strawberry and lime cider.  Yes, you read that right, it is awesome but I would say for me it is a summer drink.

So imagine my happiness when whilst perusing KittyCate's All Cats Are Grey at Night blog I saw that they now have winter cider!  It is their beautiful apple cider infused with cinnamon and vanilla.  You can have it hot or cold, but I'm not a fan of warm cider so we had it cold and it is delicious.


  1. Cider always makes me think of bad encounters with Strongbow Sweet at Uni!!! I think I might have to revisit it as an adult...

  2. Oh yes you must. You just can't compare Strongbow with the boutique ciders available now!

  3. I've always had cider in my mind as something I really like, but after having an ickily cloying sweet pear cider this year, I've been scared to go back... must be brave and try again!

  4. Do try! Plonk at the Fyshwick Markets or First Choice in Braddon both have good ranges and the Wig and Pen usually have a good variety on tap.
