Bridge Road Strong Scrumpy Cider (Beechworth, Victoria) 330ml $3.85
Sweet, bland, ciders dominate the popular market, but Ben Kraus gives us the real flavour of apples grown in the hills near Beechworth. He ferments the fresh-crushed juice with an English scrumpy yeast to delivery a 7.8 per-cent alcohol of suprising delicacy and purity, with a refreshing, dry finish.
