Re: What is your favourite cider?

My own. I grow Gravensteins (15 acres, originally planted by my great-grandfather), and cider's the best way to preserve and enjoy the ripe-picked flavo(u)r long-term :-)

I haven't been impressed with any commercial cider here in the US.

Currently trying to become licensed to produce small-batch calvados/applejack.

Any and all, especially like Stowford Press, Thatchers Gold (yum) and have you tried Pimms but instead of all lemonade. 1/2 lemonade and 1/2 cider, and of course a good slug of Gin to liven things up a bit

If you like Scrumpy Jack you should try Magners, especially with ice

I really like pear cider. Any manufacturer, but the most delicious own production

With a name like "Cox" ...

... I'd assume you'd prefer apple. I often put a bushel of Cox's Orange Pippins in with 5 bushels of Gravensteins for a nice change in my own cider.

Perry's tasty, but tell me you don't like that atrocity called "babycham" ...

What about the Calvados, did that work out?

As to apples: Golden Delicious. If possible from somewhere in the Puster Valley (South Tyrol).

Re: With a name like "Cox" ...

Calvados/applejack experiment is coming along slowly. We have about a hundred gallons of 110 proof booze from four vintages aging in 2.5 gallon oak casks down in the wine cellar (43F/6C). Last year's is rocket fuel crossed with paint stripper at the moment, but the four year old is coming along quite nicely, if sipped over ice. We know the process works, the only question is will it age out to a marketable product.

Yes, it's all legal and above board. The process itself is easy, but the .gov insists on making life difficult. The paperwork is a bitch, and we have to pay all excise taxes. And we're not licensed to allow the end product off the premises yet. Onwards & upwards ...

Not allowed off the premises as the product or not even inside the stomach of a human being :)

Legally, I am allowed to get a biker gang drunk as a skunk & then send 'em on their way ... but I can't send me dear old mum home with an airline bottle of the stuff.

i don't make the rules, I just work within them.
