Thatchers Gold is widely available as its distributed by Coopers, but is probably their least interesting cider. The good stuff doesn't tend to make it out of Somerset, and the really good stuff doesn't leave the village it's made in. It's still much more complex than most other ciders available. I've not seen Henneys over here, but if you do find it, it's worth trying. The English brands widely available here are industrial ciders (tend to use concentrate, sweetners, flavour enhancers etc. or worse) and generally are to cider what VB is to beer.nosco said:Not really a cider drinker but I would like to try a nice example of a good English or French cider.
If ever you're up Daylesford way, the cidery is well worth a visit. They make it in the traditional English way (just juice and yeast and time) from heritage cider apples grown on their farm and a fair few are still ciders which are pretty rare, but worth discovering. A tasting paddle of all 7 ciders was $10 last time I visited.
