Kings of Bristol cider
Located just off of Kings Street and created from a beautifully converted Dutch barge, The Apple has to be visited if you fancy one of best ciders in Bristol. Although if you’re after a black on black (blackthorn and blackcurrant) you’ll be sorely disappointed. We caught up with Rory Wills of The Apple to discover 13 things you might not know about The Apple.
1. Why did you start The Apple?
There was a bit of a gap in the market for a good cider bar in Bristol back in 2006. This was at the beginning of what turned out to be a big boom in the cider trade. The idea existed before we discovered the boat, and when we saw what a unique venue this could be, we went for it. Needless to say, we have since created quite a unique offering and venue in the cider capital of the world.
2. How many ciders are on tap?
3. What was the boat before The Apple?
4. Why did you open on the river?
5. What’s behind the decor?
6. Drink that you have to try?
Tractor Fuel- our world famous drink. Riches Medium farmhouse cider with a dash of ginger beer and a squeeze of lime. You can’t beat it!
