Cider Fact

"...there is every reason to believe, now that the merits of good cider have become known, that the demand...will result in cider taking the place of...foreign wines and the many artificial beverages by which the taste of the public has of late been so sadly vitiated."

C.W. Radcliffe Cooke, M.P. A Book About Cider and Perry, 1898
