ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES. This book describes the rise and fall of cyder, and sets out in practical detail the traditional techniques for making it. We are all familiar with pasteurized, bland and carbon-dioxide-injected cider, but cyder is a living wine of some subtlety, matured in cask and bottle in the manner of champagne. Cyder disappeared from England in the nineteenth century, yet at its height in the seventeenth century cyder was often preferred to good French white wine and there was much discussion on how cyder should best be made. Today cyder is having a renaissance. The reader is taken through all the necessary stages from planting the tree, gathering the fruit, pressing and fermentation to laying down a vintage. The book also includes cyder food and drink recipes for when you have made your cyder.

This international-bestselling memoir of childhood in post–World War I rural England is one of the most endearing portraits of youth in all literature. Three years old and wrapped in a Union Jack to protect him from the sun, Laurie Lee arrived in the village of Slad in the final summer of the First World War. The cottage his mother had rented for three and sixpence a week had neither running water nor electricity, but it was surrounded by a lovely half-acre garden and, most importantly, it was big enough for the seven children in her care. It was here, in a verdant valley tucked into the rolling hills of the Cotswolds, that Laurie Lee learned to look at life with a painter’s eye and a poet’s heart—qualities of vision that, decades later, would make him one of England’s most cherished authors. In this vivid recollection of a magical time and place, water falls from the scullery pump “sparkling like liquid sky.” Autumn is more than a season—it is a land eternally aflame, like Moses’s burning bush. Every midnight, on a forlorn stretch of heath, a phantom carriage reenacts its final, wild ride. And, best of all, the first secret sip of cider, “juice of those valleys and of that time,” leads to a boy’s first kiss, “so dry and shy, it was like two leaves colliding in air.” An instant classic when it was first published in 1959, Cider with Rosie is one of the most endearing and evocative portraits of youth in all of literature. The first installment in an autobiographical trilogy that includes As I Walked Out One Midsummer Morning and A Moment of War, it is also a heartfelt and lyrical ode to England, and to a way of life that may belong to the past, but will never be forgotten.

Cider is a drink whose time has come. Twenty years ago it was a minority taste competing with lager for a share of the keg-and-can market, and much favoured by under-age and problem drinkers for its strength and cheapness. Since then its popularity has soared, and it has become the drink of choice - especially in hot weather - for all sectors of society. But because of the low status of many mass-market brands, cider has never attracted the attention of researchers and writers to the extent that beer, wine, and spirits have. And nobody, until now, has attempted to unravel the many myths, legends, and misconceptions that surround its origins and development to present a factual narrative history. Is cider, as legend has it, the oldest alcoholic drink of them all, or is it in fact a comparatively recent introduction? Did it come to Britain with the Celts, the Romans, or the Normans? Were medieval babies really baptised in it? Golden Fire: The Story of Cider takes a long, cool, refreshing look at the evolution of one of Britain's favourite beverages and answers all those questions.
