Yes, he means hard cider (adult beverage, not kid beverage). Dry, as in, not sweet. No opinion on quantity... Good luck!

Shane - check your recipe. Other versions of for that cider-walnut gravy say 1 cup (8 oz) or 1 bottle (which is often 12-16 oz) cider, not 1 liter (34 oz).

1 litre good-quality dry cider it says on his website https://www.gordonramsay.com/gr/recipes/turkey-gravy-with-cider-and-walnuts/

Yes, his site says 1 litre, and has a couple of instructions to reduce, first by half, then by a third. My sources for his recipe using 1 cup and 1 bottle. Shane, your choice, of course, and the flavors DO sound good. Hope it's delicious...

Why do you want to make that? Never mind, none of my business- one would assume he means a not too sweet cider, perhaps one made with Granny Smiths or other tart apples. Whether he means hard cider or not I couldn't say, but that would be an awful lot of alcohol for gravy.
