White Star is a brand of white cider produced in Somerset, England by Brookfield Drinks, under contract for supermarkets and off licences. It is a cider with an alcohol content of 7.5% (abv).

Its main competition is from other low cost, white ciders such as White Lightning.

It is available in 500 ml cans, as well as 1 and 2 litre bottles and is traditionally served over ice. As of 2010, in some off licences it could be purchased for £0.69 per can, a rate of only 18.4 pence per UK unit of alcohol. Today, its current price is £1.00 per can.

It has also been made popular in various Misery Bear videos online.[citation needed]

No one seems to know when White Star cider was first sold to the UK public. Even the brewery who now own the brand name, are unsure of the date of origin of White Star.[citation needed]
