In my cellar: Apple Ciders of the World

When selecting something to drink I usually lean towards apple cider. 

For one thing it doesn't contain gluten and doesn't cause as much bloating properties as beer does. Wine has a lot of sulphur preservative which my body doesn't tolerate well.

Thanks to large Liquor stores like Dan Murphy's there has been an influx of ciders from all over the world. Tonight I decided to try and order some products from Dan Murphy's online store and have it delivered since my nearest store is Victoria Point, QLD - quite a distance from me.

I found a filtering feature tonight that I hadn't noticed before. 


 

I decided to buy a few bottles from different countries and have a taste testing to sample the flavour differences. 


Bulmers Blackcurrant Cider 500mL


Bulmers Blackcurrant Cider is a natural fruit fermented cider that takes its lead from the popular mixer called 'Cider & Black', this delicious blend delivers an amazing cascade of refreshing blackcurrant flavours with the crisp and clean flavours of fresh apples. Bulmers Blackcurrant is best served ice cold, poured over ice in a chilled, tall glass.
