Review:

Well where do I start with the Exhibition cider? It’s an exclusive cider just for the Cori Tap and thus will not be seen elsewhere. Though I am sure one of the big cider-makers make this for them, but I cannot find the details of this anywhere. The cider itself is as strong as it can get (8.4%) before it is classed as apple wine, which means only half-pint measures I am afraid. It sure isn’t a session cider, so half-pints are fine with me!
