2018 Ciders #31: Thatchers Katy

This is another cider I had while gaming at UKGE last weekend.

I first had Thatchers Katy about a year ago, when Geth and I went round for dinner with my old next-door neighbours at my parents’ place.  They had one in because their daughter is called Katy.  I can’t remember how much of a cider drinker Katy is (she tends to be on spirits whenever I see her) but it must be pretty cool to have a cider with the same name as you.

It’s a nice apple-y cider, a bit tastier than regular Thatchers.  Good stuff.

2018 Ciders #18: Thatchers Stan’s Cheddar Valley

Geth and I went for a slightly ill-fated Maundy Thursday pint the other night – our favourite pub was absolutely rammed, so I started to feel ill and had to leave without finishing my second drink, which was Stowford Press, already logged.  I did, however, enjoy my first, which was a rough cider I’d not tried before – Cheddar Valley, one of Thatchers’ ‘Stan’s’ line.

It was a nice change to have a rough cider – I usually only drink those in the summer – even if the taste of this one was a little dry for my liking.  I’m interested to try the other ciders in the ‘Stan’s’ range now.
