2018 Ciders #1: Thistly Cross Traditional

It’s probably fitting that my first proper post is about cider; I do drink a lot of the stuff.  I did originally think about doing a blog where I tried a new one every day for a year, but in recent years I’ve realised that I do need to have dry days most of the time.  Still, I’m going to review them here when I do drink them.

I like pretty much all flavours of Thistly Cross, but some of them can be a bit heavy.  This is a nice, lighter option at 4.4% (the Original and Whisky Cask flavours are both over 6%, for comparison), so it was very welcome yesterday when I was starting to get that really sluggish, boozed-out feeling you have towards the end of the Christmas period.

Scotland isn’t typically known for cider production, but Thistly Cross is most definitely one of my favourite ciders.  Expect to see a few different flavours of this posted over the next wee while.

  1. No apologies needed for terrible photos. (a) they’re not terrible anyway, by old standards, and (b) it’s your website, you just go for it! 🙂
