|Review: There is of course an interesting history here, with Bulmers buying Magners and then being bought back by Mr Magner but the wonderful thing is how everybody has has bought the \"tradition\" of Magners when compared to Westons, Bulmers etc they have been there five minutes. Still you cannot fault the product which is a \"Strongbow\" style bog standard fermented apple juice just made for mass glugging, but why the ice? A marketing master ploy that\'s what!|

|Review: As a child I couldn't wait to taste my fist glass of cider!!! Roald Dahl's Fantastic Mr Fox and the descriptions of Bean's underground cellar of apple cider made my mouth water at the prospect of such a fantastic beverage.|
How dissapointed I was when my introduction to cider was White Lightening. As I reached my 18th birthday I vowed never to drink cider ever again...until now!!!
The mid afternoon heat, the glass full of ice, the rose like colour...I gave in and broke my vow.
Apples THIS IS CIDER!! I can't get Apples enough. This is the stuff I've been wanting to drink since I was 10 years old, the stuff Mr Fox partied like it was 1999 to, I could happily dig a tunnel to the Magners brewery and live underground forever.

|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.
