Thistly Cross Whisky Cask
My first introduction to cider came from the Bristol bands Disorder, Amebix, and Chaos UK. They had these slogans like “Fall Over Not Out,” and “Make Homebrew Not War,” and I realised they were talking about cider. My interest was piqued. There’s actually a clip in a film UK/DK of Disorder and Amebix in their squat and they’ve got a big vat of scrumpy in the corner. I think they probably just got some apple juice and let it go, and I imagine the aroma would have been an improvement considering the way they were living at the time.
