Cider and Food Pairing

Cider is a wonderfully diverse, creative and versatile drink, lending itself to match perfectly with a wide range of different foods.

There are no rules when it comes to choosing which cider to go with a meal, but it can be useful to use these 3 guiding principles:

  1. CUT: Use a cider that cleanses the palate, or helps to cut through richness.
  2. CONTRAST: Use a cider that provides an entirely different sensation to that offered by the food to create a balanced spectrum of flavours.
  3. COMPLEMENT: Use a cider that accentuates similar flavours in the food to bring them to the fore.
