Cider in Poland, where "drinking is a national duty."

Why has it been 13 years since I've visited Poland?

When last there in 2002 for the ostensible purpose of drinking Polish-brewed Porters, my tour group often became sidetracked by the excellence of Polish mead.

Why not cider?

Cider in Poland: Apples, apples everywhere ... When drinking is a national duty (The Economist)

TOMASZ SOLIS dreams of the day when the countryside round Lublin, on the eastern edge of Poland, turns into another Tuscany: a place where motorists or cyclists make leisurely tours, stopping to refine their palates by sipping a delicate drink which only the local terroir could produce. But the beverage would be cider, not wine.
