What is Hard Cider?

Any fruit will ferment, given enough time. With a bit of help, many can be turned into alcohol. Grapes are the most common example, but there is a long tradition in Northern Europe of using apples to create Cider, known as "Hard Cider" in the US.

Cider can be made from almost any variety of apple, but often is made with special varieties. It can be made simply, by allowing apple juice to ferment, but, like wine, high quality cider requires careful attention and craftsmanship.
