Sea Cider’s Owner Kristen was inspired to create a traditional winter warming cider that embodied all the traditional Wassail characteristics and leant itself to the traditions of wassailing. Wassailing refers to drinking and singing to the health of an orchard. An ancient practice from southern England that’s still performed at Sea Cider Farm & Ciderhouse today. The purpose of wassailing is to awaken the cider apple trees and scare away evil spirits ensuring a good harvest. Wassailing also refers to the tradition of raising a glass with good friends and neighbours in celebration of the season.
