The Cider Mill is an advanced production building for the Cider resource, which satisfies the Tier 3 population need for Alcohol. Unlike most production buildings, there is no Level 1 version available in early eras.

The supply chain for Cider is considered quite challenging, since it requires large surpluses in both Pottery (Tier 2 population need) and Apples (Tier 1 population need) before production can begin in earnest. This makes it uncommon for players to develop it outside of large, highly-mature cities that can satisfy all 3 needs simultaneously.
