Thatchers Cheddar Valley cider... made in the same place as Black Rat - the only difference is the beetroot juice to change the colour to orange. Avoid both! Firmly in the category that give the colloquial name to scrumpy as tanglefoot. Scrumpy does hit the nerves in that way. And legs feel it first.

And didn't I think that Stinking Bishop was soaked in Perry ! The answer is yes

And FWIW cider is not a brew. It is not brewed - the trade insist the term is milled hence the stone roundel to crash the apples called a scratter. Wiki on cider

In Bristol they refer to Thatchers Gold as Natch - would that have originally derived from "natural"?
