The specification for traditional Welsh cider, a protected food name product.
This document provides detail on a protected food name product from the UK, Traditional Welsh Cider, which has been given Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) status.

The EU will only give a product the PGI mark if they decide it has a reputation, characteristics or qualities that are a result of the area it’s associated with.
