A cow-orker* informed me of this exciting new Aspall’s product this morning.


Perronelle’s Blush, eh? Now look, we know it’s Cider & Black, you know it’s Cider & Black, CALL IT CIDER & BLACK!!!

Here at FT Towers we are now awaiting the launch of “Serpent’s Kiss”, and Le Petit Tatou

I’m sure you can think of a few others in the comments box?

*who was also not taken in by this subtle bit of re-branding, to her credit.

political correctness gone sensible

News reaches us from blackleg our intrepid reporter, MattDC, that scenes like the above are no longer permissable at Glastonbury as THE MAN has BANNED brothers from selling plastic 2 litre bottles of their yellow nectar. We are not yet sure if this is due to the plastic making a right old mess or the fact that each bottle contains approximately 14 units of alcohol.

If you have joined our Pilton Boycott this year (and thank you all 850,000 of you* that have) but are still hankering after peary goodness, brothers is now available quite widely. Use their excellent ciderfinder to find yr nearest stockist!

UPDATE: This just in “Theres a dude selling rockingdadchairs! ACTUAL ROCKING DADCHAIRS! Omg”

*based on reports in previous years of a million people trying to get tickets on the first day
