10% cider duty increase!!

Recommended Posts

Somewhat bizarrely, this has prompted an online campaign to get "I Am A Cider Drinker" by The Wurzels to number 1.

The Wurzels have indeed spoken, according to the Guardian.

West Country band The Wurzels also expressed their disappointment. In a statement, the group said that: "We are all very upset that scrumpy cider, being one of the few pleasures that we cherish down here on the farm in the West Country, is being hit by such a tax rise."

Does this not just move Cider in line with beer? It doesn't necessarily mean that a pint will go up by 10%, there may be a small increase. Cider hasn't been nearly as taxed as beer so this is more aimed at the person who makes the cider... is my understanding of it.

Why don't goths drink Guinness anyway? None more black.

And the need for blackcurrant juice to give it that vampiric purple hue is eliminated.

Maybe they are all just nancies that need to have a pint that tastes like Ribena.

Don't think so, as that shit is made from Onions...

...so I was reliably told years ago in a pub by some dude.

Aye, I also heard that. The question is, if they actually started brewing it from onions, could it avoid the classification of 'cider' while retaining all of the taste?
