Just had to tell you, sitting here drinking a bottle of Black Fox and thinking “This is the best cider in the world bar none”!
I used to come and buy from the shop when visiting my mate who lived just up the road, next to Sandy Owens. Now he has moved I buy it from Waitrose, bit of a game getting to Waitrose as they open Saturday morning and clear the shelf, if I don’t someone else always does. It’s the only one to be sold out every day.
Just love the stuff!
