Welcome to The Cider Blog! I am Nick Morris, a 31 year old cider enthusiast from Bristol. Although originally from Bracknell (near London), I have been in the South West for over 15 years now and my love for cider has grown and grown over the years. My cider taste is a bit of a mixed bunch really. I like the proper scrumpy ciders by choice, but i do have a secret like for “borderline” ciders like Westons on a hot summers day. I do hate purely commercial ciders like Magners with a passion! My cider tastes do lean more towards ‘West Country’ style, rather than ‘Eastern Counties’ style, though I will explore any proper cider out there!
Over the years I have unwittingly been to pretty much every pub with any decent cider in Bristol (and always looking for new places to go! – contact me with recommendations, if you know of any I haven’t reviewed). This blog is here to record my thoughts and feelings about anything cider related. This will range from my pub reviews to even making my own cider. I do like to write a good cider review along the way, which are usually straight to the point and try to add a little bit of fun/humour when I can.
Writing an ‘about me’ sections is not really for me, so take it as you will.
