In the meantime, we invite you to read posts on the Polish cider and our adventure in search of the perfect cider.
WHO WE ARE
Rita and Leszek (known as Leo) – a marriage tandem: an editor and a photographer.
Our adventure with cider began in 2009 when we first tried cider in the UK. Rita liked ciders flavored with strawberries, berries, pomegranate – but then we did’t know that they do not have much in common with a real cider.
The breakthrough came in 2013 when Rita began working as a copywriter for a Polish portal promoting cider. We started to read more about cider (and also tried the local cider) and finding out more about its production.
It turned out that we are lucky: we live – by accident – in the area of Gloucestershire in the west of England, famous for its cider and a long tradition of an apple crop.
A year ago Rita began a research about the English cider and she is currently writing a book on the subject. Leszek supports her with photographs. Many of the images on this website are taken by him. Leszek is fascinated in photo reportage, recently tried his hand at a photo studio.
We also cooperate with our friend Danuta Sosnowa who is a talented artist (painter and photographer).
We want our site to be some kind of platform which combines our passions and love for cider and it will help to promote Polish cider worldwide.
