Michelin

Michelin

Michelin is a traditional French hard cider apple variety producing a bittersweet juice.

Cider apple varieties tend to remain in use primarily in their area of origin but Michelin was imported to England in the 19th century and as a result has become popular in English-speaking cider regions as well.
