You can find an alcohol free version of 'cider' at Ikea. But the only place I know of which stocks real cider is John King Polska (based near Warsaw), they have (or at least can get) Bulmers.

The problem with that site is the postage costs. 24 cans of Magners plus the postage is £65!

If you do find some, be sure to share the location!

I think Tesco stock it, that big one behind the Cytadela.

The last few times Ive been to Wroclaw have looked for cider. In the bar and also shops but can't find any. Coming from Gloucester I love the stuff. ( the real stuff). Don't think they sell it in Poland. Start exporting it mate. It will soon catch on.

I make applewine at home. It's really easy and if you give it a shot of carbonated water, a little sugar if you're into that kind of thing, and you've got good cider. Takes about 3 weeks...but it's way cheaper, tates better, and you get a whole jug of it.

Sad really. People drinking cider for the first time will be of the opinion that Strongbow is the real thing. Rather than the cheap imitation that it is. Terrible stuff.

ehow.com/how_2093695_make-apple-wine.html - This is a good one to follow

I follow pretty much the same steps except I don't add ascorbic acid or wine tannin and use lemon juice as the acid blend. I like it cloudy, so I skip the campden tablet and drink it straight away (if you do this, make absolutely sure that everything you use is sterile, good way to make yourself sick!). I'd also suggest pressing your apples instead of buying store bought. You can play around with the type of apple to get what you like.

You might have to order some stuff, but it will last you forever because you don't need much of it for a batch:

burgundy wine yeast
yeast nutrients
pectic acid

hydrometer
airlock

The good news is that you'll be placing that order with a place that more than likely sells beer making supplies... so you can make it a christmas order and get everything you need to make beer too. Applewine is a lot easier than beer, but once you get beer brewing down you start getting snobbish because you can make exactly what you like at home. Beware, it's addictive.

You can always check out the town of Kwierzyna-might be you're best bet

-------cydris -----a traditional drink produced in the rural parts of western Poland. Skwierzyna, a small town close to the present German / Polish border, is the centre of the cider making industry.

It's a shame you're not in Poznan, I know quite a few people who would happily pay for a course on making cider/beer at home :(

Hi,
I saw bottles of cider in Marks & Spencer at Malta.
