Scape Goat Cider

Scape Goat Cider is labelled as a premium cider. I doubt it, but I’m going to drink it to find out.

Ramborn Cider Orchard Tour

A few years ago, I got twitter message from this guy in Luxembourg “Hey do you want to try our Ramborn Cider? We had a call to arrange the shipment, “You’re in Austria, right? I’ll post you a few samples”. At which point I had to point out it was Australia, not Austria. Anyway after some back and forth I got the samples.
