Encyclopedia > Gaymer's Olde English cider

Gaymer's Olde English cider is a brand of cider. Most English ciders are grown and fermented in Herefordshire (e.g. Britain's most popular ciders Strongbow and Woodpecker). Unusually, Gaymer's originated in Norfolk in eastern England. From small beginnings, most English ciders were grown on farms as part of the workers' remuneration, each worker in the west of England receiving a gallon of cider per day. As times have changed so has the brewing of English cider, many small farms still ferment their own cider but most cider is now brewed commercially. Gaymer's started brewing cider (generally known by the alternative spelling cyder) during the late eighteenth century from a farm near Attleborough, Norfolk, continuing as a farm concern until 1870 when William Gaymer introduced a hydraulic press and began to sell the cider commercially for the home market and export.
