  8. I can't really drink cider nowadays but Rattler do a fab cider that is put in oak barrels and deceptively sold in wine bottles.

  13. They have a splitty in their promotional video but also feature a nice blonde playing a mandolin so can't be all bad.

    Many, many years ago we went on a camping holiday to Cornwall and one afternoon involved a visit to a cider farm (no idea which one). Unable to drink as I was driving and with our two then small children with us, we got a four pint takeaway of their cloudy scrumpy. Well, we thought we'd have a pint with our supper and a pint the next day. Didn't quite work out like that as we emptied the whole jug that night. Can't recall how the rest of the evening went but it was jolly good stuff.

  18. Probably more the fault of £1 specials in the late 80s of Diamond White and K Ciders and crappy Woodpecker and Autumn Gold. I know there a lot better quality ciders about today, I've had the odd sip of a few.
