I'm a cider guy, and I'm just wondering where is the best place within the isles to seek out a County of many wonderful ciders that taste like angels, is it actually Somerset? Do we have Somerset people on here?

I know Worleys is based in Somerset & they do some good ciders. Mendip Hills & Harvest Moon are my favourite ones of theirs. I've not been to Somerset but I have visited Devon & Cornwall & there's a good choice of different ciders from those places as well. I think the Southwest of England in general is well known for cider.

yes - there is a good map here:

South west/south wales in general is the home of cider-drinking.. somerset is its spiritual epicenter.

I still find it weird, as someone from somerset when I go elsewhere, and most of the men order beer/larger. Its just so normal here that the most common drink on the table is cider, and beer/ale/larger etc are the minority option.

In london, when I was a student - I had a group of friend who thought cider was just a 'girls drink' - mainly because all they had been exposed to was the fruity expensive fizzy bottled versions.

If you want real cider, come down to the southwest - get some nice flat strong stuff, smells like piss but tastes delicious, some of its as strong as wine, and gets you to a happy place real quick!

Cheers, I often get the same reaction I'm a cider guy and just don't like beer it's rotten stuff. Planning a weekend somewhere in England just to do this 😂

Somerset is the place to be for cider. I grew up there and spent many summers of my childhood in orchards. :daydreaming:
