Re: English Cider - your thoughts please

I'm actually interested to know what exactly is in the Swiss market ATM. I have been stuck with the coop bulmers and even have to tolerate the strongbow or Swedish perry every once in awhile. Pickwicks in Baden has got magners on tap, but I'd like to get something... Scrumpy? Does that mean scrumptious or is this some cider connoisseur lingo? Whatever it is, it sounds good!

Re: English Cider - your thoughts please

Just missed Glastonbury for the first time in decades thanks to being here, that is the only time I drink cider so bought some local Beckenreider and was naturally thinking about english cider when I saw this thread.
I always get the Brothers Pear Cider from the Jazz stage or the Burrow Hill from the legendary cider bus. I would be very happy to see either here.

It's not English, but just for information I drank Viez recently in Trier. Cloudy and superbly dry. If you can find it, I recommend it to anyone that loves Cider.

Re: English Cider - your thoughts please

I agree with the other comments that Gaymers, Magners, Bulmers etc. would be out of keeping with your products.

You may be able to get some information on ciders available for export from Middle Farm. They hold the National Collection of Ciders and Perrys. I was in there just a few days ago. They stock over 100 draught ciders and perrys, plus around 150 bottled ciders, meads etc.

Addlestone's does appear to be springing up in pubs here on draught.

Re: English Cider - your thoughts please

Here is an idea, make your own, not too difficult; Grumpyscrumpy! Has a nice ring, you could also get one of the local Most makers to run you a batch, that place in Au does it I think.
By the way "scrumpy" is cider that has been made from stolen apples.

Re: English Cider - your thoughts please

I love english ciders, my personal favorite is crippled cock from Bristol really delicious. There are also really nice ciders from Switzerland especially Thurgau which is called "MostIndia" in swiss german because it has so many apple trees and produces so many fine ciders

Re: English Cider - your thoughts please

IMHO rivers and mountains better a good irish dry stout

Cider is too... how can I say... "smooth"

Beer at least has a taste more "full"

Re: English Cider - your thoughts please

I'm sipping some Badgers "Apple Wood" Somerset oaked cider at the mo and IMO it is very good, Badgers Perry will be out of the fridge soon too. Any West Country cider experts care to share an opinion on this particular brand?
