Real Cider and Perry is #NotFromConcentrate

Many of the ciders you see in pubs aren’t made from fresh apples, instead being made from apple concentrate or “chaptalised” juices (a process where the alcohol level in a cider or perry is increased by the addition of sugar to an unnatural level for storage, before it is diluted with water to the desired alcohol content for sale). For more information on real Cider and Perry, click here.

All of the ciders and perries at Chorlton Festival have been pressed from fresh apples or pears and #NotFromConcentrate.

The Cider & Perry Bar is brought to you thanks to the support of Chorlton Fireworks – Manchester’s No. 1 year round fireworks outlet.

There will be over 50 varieties available sourced from some of the finest producers around, including our own local producer Dunham Press. The majority will be still ciders served from Bag In Box (BiB) complemented by a range of keg conditioned ciders and a selection of artisan fine bottled ciders.

The ciders and perries ordered for the festival are listed below. Final list available at festival is subject to change but we will endeavour to keep this page updated.

Massive thanks to Nicky from Cat In The Glass who has curated our Cider and Perry list. Nicky is a certified Pommelier so you can be assured that she’s only selected the very best cider and perry producers.
