This is a list of cider brands from Devon in the United Kingdom. Although neighbouring county of Somerset is better known for its apple orchards, Devon has an equally long orchard and cider tradition.[1] Many Devon cider producers are using traditional Devon varieties of apple[2] During the 17th and 18th centuries, a condition known as Devon colic, a form of lead poisoning, was associated with the consumption of cider,[3] vanishing after a campaign to remove lead components from cider presses in the early 19th century.
