Ye Olde English History
Cider is possibly the oldest of all alcoholic drinks. It is certainly the oldest alcoholic drink produced in the UK. In 1066, the Normans brought their more advanced cider making methods to England and especially their cider apple varieties. Cider became popular across England, but the cider apples thrived in Western extremities that had sufficient sunlight to produce a strong crop of apples. John Gaymer is believed to have initially started production of Cyder in 1770 in Banham near Attleborough in Norfolk. He was challenged by his father in law to improve quality of Cyder from the East of England and John Gymers Cyder quickly gained a reputation for exceptional quality. Two styles of cider emerged at the time (one based upon production techniques and the other cider apples from the west). Although there are no formal records to explain why, it is believed that the spelling helped to signify the differences.
