It’s Thursday, it’s that evening where we have a drink in the name of Ciderbods and of course it’s something new for me to try. I rarely have a review nowadays where I have forgot to review it first time round. What’s on the menu you’re probably wondering by this point? Well, it’s an interesting 3 apple blend cider from Ross-On-Wye. They have conjured up an Dabinett, Bramley & Sweet Coppin cider and by golly I can’t wait to get my mitts on it.

After a whopping great tasting of the Ventons Skippy’s Scrumpy ‘Barrel 7’ Cider just now, having a commercial cider just after that will bring into comparison probably the worlds apart they really are. My next tasting will be of the Rosie’s Pig from Westons.

Crikey, it’s Wednesday already? The week is just flying by at the moment and only one more day at work before I’m off camping for the weekend. I’m certainly looking forward to that and fingers crossed I can visit a cider farm or 2 along the way as well. Thankfully I have a few ciders to keep me ticking over until then. Up next is another single variety (SV) cider from Ross-On-Wye, which is the Ashton Brown Jersey.

After the indifferent experience of the Tutts Clump Traditional Farmhouse Perry, I wanted to bring my evening up to a high note and thought there was no better way than to try a cider from a consistently good producer. Up steps a cider from Ross-On-Wye, which happens to be their single variety (SV) Balls Bittersweet cider.

As I thought might be the case, the football didn’t end how I wanted it to and I need to have a few ciders to drown my sorrows. I have a few favourites in the fridge to try later, but now it’s time to finish off the trio of Ross-On-Wye single variety (SV) ciders I intended to do at the start of the day. Up last is the Major (SV) cider.
