Apple Cider Day is celebrated in the United States on November 18th and is a great way to enjoy a delicious drink made from apples. It’s especially cozy in the cold season and who can refuse the unique taste of this natural drink?
Apple Cider Day has a very long history, dating back all the way to 3000 BC when it was first made in Britain. The apple variety used at the time gave it a bitter taste, but it was improved when farmers began cultivating fruits in 55 BC. By 1066, cider was famous around the world, but especially in England. In the 19th century, the demand for cider was so great that farmers sold their holdings to growers who built businesses. In the 1980s, cider had a lower-class reputation, but in the 21st century, Magners, an Irish company, helped to revive it. Now, the brand offers two types of cider.
- Cider is not made only from apples, but from a variety of fruits such as pears, pomegranates, and cherries.
- In Spain, cider is used for other purposes, such as adding to dishes, sauces and desserts.
- The Asturian variety of cider is drunk in one sip.
- Some states have festivals dedicated to cider.
- In the 19th century, cider was advertised as a remedy for gout.
