A variety of fermented fruit juices can be turned into cider. Sometimes the term is only used for apple cider, while pear-based cider is called perry. Another popular choice for the production of cider are berries. All types of ciders reach millions of consumers in the United Kingdom (UK). The alcoholic beverage is also exported, especially to North American and European markets.
The companies that are producing cider and other fruit wines in the UK generated a revenue of 611 million British pounds in 2018. The major share of cider is sold off-trade. However, only 38 percent of cider sales value is generated this way. This makes the on-trade sales channel the more profitable one by far.
The overwhelming majority of imports to the UK come from countries in the European Community. Of the approximately 57 million British pounds worth of imports, about 56 million British pounds came from the EC. The lion's share came from Sweden, with 41.38 million British pounds worth of imports originating in the Scandinavian country. The biggest cider export markets were the U.S., Canada and the Republic of Ireland.
