“The cider went noisily down his throat. 'It's... it's like melted gold!' he gasped. 'Oh, Foxy, it's... like drinking sunbeams and rainbows!'”

Authentic Cider emerged from the challenge of finding good quality, real ciders in Hong Kong. We all want authentic food and drink that has been made using the best ingredients. We want to know that our food and drink is real and not artificial. We found that the best artisan ciders are:
- Made traditionally: cider makers who stay true to simplicity and traditional principles use historic varieties of cider apple to create single varietal styles or their own special blends. They respect traditional approaches and avoid industrial techniques.
- Award winning: cider makers who win awards make great tasting cider.
- Good looking: our cider makers present their ciders beautifully.
We bring you authentic cider - cider made by fermenting the juice of freshly squeezed apples with the help of natural yeasts and the love, care and skill of the cider maker. That's it.
“As for liquid, my rule is drink no liquid that is not at least a thousand years old - so its fitness has been tested.”
