Cherry cider

Juicy. Sweet. Unique.

The thought of a wild cherry cider, sporting the name of my favourite word, ‘simple’, occupied my mind for two days before I bought one from the quirky bar at the Alabama in Hobart.


Les described the flavour as ‘a smack in the mouth that is followed by a kick in the ribs.’

I was time warped to a six-year-old being fed a syringe full of cherry-flavoured anti-biotics.

Is that a cheap shiraz taste mixed with apple cider vinegar and anti-biotics from the 80s? Why yes, it is.

With 2.1 standard drinks in every bottle, you’d think the happy feeling would numb your tongue, but no.

The side of the bottle claims it’s a small batch.

Thank goodness.
