Vegan Shopping Basket – The Best Vegan Cider

by Laura Barns

6min read

If you're not a wine or beer fan, have no fear. There are plenty of delicious vegan ciders available now in most British pubs, bars and supermarkets. So stock up on this summer staple, and enjoy!

mortimer's apple cider

Mortimer's English Apple Cider

Kicking it off with an original flavour from a well-established brand, these guys certainly know how to do cider. Made with 100% fresh apple juice and available in two varieties (the above and English Berry) you don't get much more authentic than this.

Best for: when you want something traditional yet tasty

Average price: £4.00

Availability: 3/5 

Taste: 5/5 

Overall rating: 4/5

Old Mout Cider – Pineapple and Raspberry

If fruity ciders are your thing, look no further than the delicious range from Old Mout. This is one of our favourites as you don't get much more summery than pineapple and raspberry.

Best for: fans of fruity ciders (other than apple and pear, obviously!)

Average price: £2.50

Availability: 5/5

Taste: 4/5

Overall rating: 4/5 

Burrow Hill Sparkling Cider

This cider undergoes a secondary fermentation within the bottle in order to gain tiny bubbles. It's then matured for two years in Burrow Hill's cellars before the yeast is removed and it is ready to drink, and it shows.

Best for: when you want to taste the expertise in every drop

Average price: £3.99

Availability: 2/5

Taste: 5/5

Overall rating: 4/5 

Rekorderlig – Strawberry and Lime

One of the original key players in the mainstream fruity cider game, all the offerings from Rekorderlig are vegan. This is one of the most popular flavours; it's basically fruit juice for adults.

Best for: when choosing a vegan-friendly cider in a chain pub/bar

Average price: £3.00

Availability: 5/5

Taste: 3/5

Overall rating: 4/5

Aspall Draught Cyder

This stuff is basically from the orchards of heaven. Draught is a crisp, medium dry cyder with a delicate aroma and taste of fresh-pressed apples, crafted at the original Cyder House, Suffolk.

Best for: all your delicious, cider needs

Average price: £3.00

Accessibility: 3/5 

Taste: 5/5

Overall rating: 5/5

Magners Pear Cider

Another regular behind the bar, this crowd-pleaser is one of the few vegan options from Magners. Great to know if you have a cider craving in a supermarket with a limited vegan selection, too.

Best for: pear cider fans

Average price: £2.00

Availability: 5/5

Taste: 2/5 

Overall rating: 3/5 

Brother's Toffee Apple Cider

Ok, so this is my actual favourite, but it got bumped down a notch because 1. it's always sold out and 2. I wanted to appear a bit more refined (I tried). It's sinfully tasty, and I will not be told otherwise.

Best for: those with a big sweet tooth

Average price: £2.50

Availability: 3/5 

Taste: 5/5

Overall rating: 4/5 

Sassy Cidre

This is another option that almost clinched the top spot, and not just because of the great name. Sassy Cidre, as the name suggests, is produced and bottled in France, so it's extra stylish, too.

Best for: if you want to try something a bit different

Average price: £3.99

Availability: 1/5 

Taste: 5/5

Overall rating: 4/5 

Stay tuned for the next instalment in our Vegan Shopping Basket series.
