Cider apples these days are used by blending a mixture of different apple varieties together. However in times past there were traditional varieties from which cider was pressed using one variety alone. The cider apples we offer were usually from particular regions of England and France, where each apple made a local drink with its own special qualities, allowing the natives to make their own unique brews from their own regional apples.
