An illustrated history of making cider in Wales from the early vague references, its growth into a widespread rural activity during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, its decline, then its revival in the late 20th century. Cider is an alcoholic drink made from the fermented juice of apples. It was the staple drink of many of the rural inhabitants of the Welsh border counties until the early years of the twentieth century. Cider making was a skilled and ancient craft widely practised until the late 1950s, when it was largely replaced by factory produced cider. Traditional farmhouse cider continued to be produced on a small scale, however, keeping the craft alive, until a new crop of craft cider makers emerged in the 1990s onwards leading to its renaissance and development.
