Six Nations Round Two – cider selection

With teams selected for the second round of the Six Nations, we too have pulled together our ciders of choice for each of the sides!



Thistly Cross, (un)Traditional – Scotland find themselves at the top of the table after round one, which may not be something they are used to, but victory over Ireland could leave them dreaming of the title!

This traditional cider from Thistly Cross is a perfect medium session cider. Matured for six months to give balance, smoothness and ultimate fruitiness. This cider has a fruity and aromatic nose and a golden look in the glass.



Harry’s, No. 8 – England will need another big performance from their number 8 when they take on France at Twickenham.

Harry’s no. 8 is a sweet farmhouse, but not overl so; just right for the novice cider drinker. Sit back and enjoy the ride if you are an England fan!



Gwynt y Ddraig, Black Dragon – Wales will look to pile on the points against Italy as the Red Dragon heads to Rome. But have you tried the Black Dragon from Llantwit Fadre?

Renowned and award winning cider rich in colour, body and flavour with a fresh, fruity aroma.



Wignac, Cidre Naturel – what will you make of this cider from across the channel? To be honest it’s nothing like their rugby side, CONSISTENTLY flamboyant and delicious!

Medium dry blend of 65% cider and 35% eating apples.



Bottle Kicking, Scrambler – the Irish have been left scrambling for answers following an all conquering 2018.

The Scrambler is a medium dry, intense gold and slightly hazy cider. Can Ireland find some intensity at Murrayfield, or will they be left feeling slight hazy once more?



Italy... any recommendations?
