Known by many as the bard of cider, James Crowden's earlier cider books are legendary, inspiring many, including this writer, to delve that bit deeper and – as we did – become totally enthralled with the world of cider.

In this new tome, James' ability to convey the oft-complex scenarios surrounding the history of cider with driving clarity remains as sharp – and entertaining – as ever.

In true style, James himself has gone ever deeper, stretching back centuries skirting Shakespeare's time, navigating Newfoundland quests, and exploring the birth of bottle fermentation along the way. The relevance of cider clubs and festivals in the spread of knowledge and enthusiasm is revealed as James brings the story up-to-date, highlighting the value of varieties and discussing the curate's egg that is climate change.

"James Crowden is Britain's best cider writer … Cider Country is the book we have all been waiting for" 
Oz Clarke
