Maiden Mill Alcohol-free Cider

I hadn’t reviewed an alcohol-free cider for a while so I was excited when I came across Maiden Mill, an alcohol-free cider at WiseBartender.

They call themselves the “World’s first dedicated AF cider brand” so I have high expectations that this will be a good drink – especially when it comes from the home of classic cider, Somerset, UK. Maiden Mill produces two AF ciders – a medium dry cloudy cider and the golden sparkling cider I tried today.

Made using a classic bittersweet cider base (including varieties such as Somerset Redstreak, Yarliginton Mill and Jonagold) along with a few other locally sourced ingredients ensures this has all the refreshing properties you would expect from a cider.

The question is how does Maiden Mill stack up against other alcohol-free ciders? Well, you’ll just need to read my review below to find out.

Is Maiden Mill Alcohol-free Cider any good?


Maiden Mill is a pretty tasty cider and it’s hard to believe you are not drinking an alcoholic version. The blend of apples used really does help to create tangy, bittersweet, acidic flavours with a background of sweetness. In addition, the carbonation adds to the drinking experience, enhancing the refreshment. Overall an alcohol-free cider I can certainly get behind and recommend.

Aroma & Appearance

As expected lots of punchy ripe apple flavours hit your nose as soon as the cap is popped.  In the glass Maiden Mill pours with a clear, spakling amber colour.

Bonus points

This alcohol-free cider should suit most drinks as it has low calories (less than 85Kcals per bottle), is vegan friendly and suitable for gluten-free drinkser.
