|Review: I just came back from a 2 week stay in London. My best friend whom I stayed with knew I loved Scrumpy Jack' so I had a few whilst over there. I wish they would import it to America. I agree with a few other comments made that there IS a difference btw. Scrumpy's and Woodpecker or Strongbow which we can get in the States. After all, we do import Guinness, so why not cider as well?|

|Review: This is the dogs of all ciders and makes Magners taste like the dirty dish water it is. Get some of this here or down at your local in the summer, drink a few of the stuff and then try to play football afterwards.|

|Review: Sparkling, refreshing, greatest taste on earth. Excellent with any meal or just on its own. Must have at least one can per day.|

|Review: I actually enjoyed both SCRUMPY JACK and STRONGBOW. Found both side by side at a place called GLOBAL FOODS in Kirkwood, Missouri, USA. Each has a wonderfully addictive cider taste, and each has their own follow-on aftertaste- neither of which was unpleasant. Like I said- I loved them both! Better than the US ciders!|

|Review: Strongbow must now have the Canadian market completely locked up -- more's the pity. I can't find my beloved Scrumpy Jack anywhere. And oh! how I miss it. There's nothing like the sweet-tart flavour of Scrumpy Jack. Beside it, Strongbow tastes like carbonated vinegar. Yet wherever in Toronto cider is on the menu, Strongbow is the only one offered. I always make a point of asking for it, however.|
Sweeter than beer but nothing like the syrupy taste of soda pop, Scrumpy Jack satisfies thirst, delivers a polite kick and stands alone or goes with any kind of pub food or snacks. I think it could even present itself honourably with fancier fare too. But it truly shines as a pub drink on a hot day, at the end of a long work day, or with lunch on a lazy weekend.
Please somebody, bring Scrumpy Jack back to Toronto pubs!

|Review: I absolutely love this beverage. I was introduced to hard cider drinks while my serrvice in the United States Marine Corps. I was stationed in San Diego California and my first taste of a hard cider was a "George Hornsby's". I immediately gave up beer. During my first tour to the Persian Gulf in '99 I tasted two new ciders. The first was in Singapore and it was a cider called "Strongbow". It was very strong and I liked it except for the very harsh aftertaste - which to me is very important. The second one I found during my travels was in Australia - Perth, Western Australia to be exact. I was in the company of two very attractive older Australian lasses. They were basically seeing that I had a good time while visiting the land down under for my first time. I relayed that I preferred hard cider to beer and the closest of my companions suggested Scrumpy Jack. I loved it so much I talked the bar tender at the pub into allowing me to buy a mug. I've been looking for it in the USA and have had no luck. I will continue to look in desperation.|

|Bulmers was founded in 1887 in Hereford, England by Percy Bulmer, the 20 year old son of a local clergyman, taking his mother's advice to make a career in food or drink 'because neither ever go out of fashion.'|
Using apples from the orchard at his father's rectory and an old stone press on the farm next door, young Percy made the first drop of cider upon which the family fortune would be made. Today Bulmers make 65% of the five million hectolitres sold annually in the UK and the bulk of the exports.
His elder brother, Fred, coming down from Kings College, Cambridge, turned down the offer of a post as tutor to the children of the King of Siam, to join Percy in his fledgling cider business. A lady called Anna got the job instead and hence that wonderful musical film, The King and I, based on a true story.
Meanwhile the brothers, with a 1000 loan from their father, bought an 8 acre field just outside the City walls and built their first cider mill. It was little more than a shack compared to the huge modern, stainless steel, computer controlled cider making plant that has grown up on a 75 acre site nearby.
Cider making in those early days was a hit or miss affair, the fermentation being achieved by the wild yeast in the apple, and more often than not, the cider turned sour.It was a college friend of Fred's, Dr Herbert Durham, who, in the 1890's, isolated the wild yeast to create the first pure cider yeast culture which would ensure all future fermentations were consistent. It was the start of commercial cider making.
Bulmers was first granted the Royal Warrant in 1911 and continues proudly today as Cider Maker to her Majesty, the Queen.
