Feeling patriotic ? Give "Thistly Cross" from Dunbar a bash.You wont be disappointed and at 7.4% you wont be sober ! Other faves at the moment on draught round here...Symonds,Aspalls and Stowford Press. Old Rosie is dynamite but I canny whack more than a few pints.

White lightening and diamond white used to be good sellers.

Now its frosty jacks that has taken over the market share of rocket fuel ciders

If you know anything at the higher end of the market, that would be appreciated. Most of us are not down there with the Buckfast boys.

K cider is still in the go. Not the mat black bottles though, just in cans.

We brought in all the high end stuff last year during a cider festival promotion, sat gathering dust for a couple of months then got rid. Apparently the clientel of lochee and fintry are just not ready for high end ciders.

Frosty jack sales went through the roof though.

Was nice. Free tour and came out blottoed. And with a cerry oot too.
