NEWS from Dave, May 2000: New Title: `CAMRA`s Good Cider Guide` Publication: September (?) Contents: 130ish producers (with labels reproduced where provided), 500ish surveyed outlets, 20ish features on all aspects of cider home and abroad (many by UK cider makers), lots of b/w photos throughout.

"We need your help! This new Cider Guide will be published next year, and will promote both `Real Cider` and filtered cider, but the filtered cider must be made from 100% juice, must not be pasteurised or artificially carbonated, and must not be made from juice concentrate.

Cider Producers - We want to list all commercial cider makers. We know about the well-established ones, but if you know of any new producers please send their name and address to the Guide Editor whose details follow.

Dave Matthews, (Guide Editor), Email 1bethan@talk21.com


"Thankyou UKcider subscribers for the cider outlet and producer information that has been sent my way since my initial appeal for information for the Cider Guide.

It has been suggested that I publish a list of known Cider Producers on UKcider, so that you can easily fill in the gaps for me and also advise me of any closures. I have attached a file that can hopefully be reproduced on UKcider, please email any information either to UKcider or to me directly at 1bethan@talk21.com

Please note that the producer list is a mailing list of possible producers, some of them may not be selling cider commercially, others not making cider at all. Please do not approach a cider maker until you see them in print in the Cider Guide.
