Kampot Cider – Cambodia [Cider Review]

Cambodia may not be famous for its cider, but it does have a secret! Kampot Cider is actually made in Sihanoukville but it is still Cambodian Cider.  I’ve tried to find more information about this cidery but haven’t been able to dig anything up.  The only other hard cider I have been able to find here in Cambodia is Hops’ Mango Cider, which Beckie can attest to is amazing!  Everything else I have seen has been imported from Australia or Europe.  I have had a few Kampot Ciders and I can tell you it is lovely, sparkling and refreshing on the tropically hot days here in Cambodia.

Kampot Cider is made with Cider with Champagne Yeast which gives it a beautiful sparkle, I have been told it carries on fermenting in the bottles so the strength could be higher than what is on the label.  It’s also got the classic hard cider gunk at the bottom of the bottle so you know it’s really local.

Know of any other cider shops in Cambodia?  Please let me know, I’d love to check them out.
