It is indeed and when i tried to kill myself drinking it on my brothers stag weekend in cork city a few years ago, thats exactly what it was called! (murphys and bulmers in the same glass. deadly) :grin:
Well I like it and it will do nicely for me because you can't get cloud over here.
'twas a cider run in Torpoint the night before I went to BRNC that caused some confusion for the next number of years whenever I joined a new ship, and was inevitably asked the question "how do you pronounce your name?". On the first day at Dartmouth, one of the last things we did before they finally let us eat was to have our "official" photos taken, complete with a self completed name board. Pity the hangover allowed me the right letters for my surname, but stopped me from getting the sequence right.
I suspect Magners will soon be consigned to the slop tray of history, along with all the other "fashion" drinks that the brewing industry sees fit to foist on the public every summer. Anyone care to remember...............
All distinguished by having a bland innoffensive taste coupled with a high alcahol content.
When somebody suggested I try a Magners last summer I predicted that by this time this year they'd be flogging off cheap in corner shop off licences. It looks like I was correct.
Anyone got any suggestions as to what this years summer fad drink is going to be?
Have never managed to pluck up the courage to try Magners, but whilst Morrisons may not be the best in the supermarket business they do have a very nice selection of bottled ciders, including a very tasty one matured in rum casks. Enjoy
from what I can gether, the apples for the cider are grown in Somerset by Bulmers, then shipped to Ireland to make the cider........... then shipped back to the UK for easly lead people to drink over ice
The Magners that is oh so trendy in the UK at the moment is known as Bulmers in Ireland.
It is made from IRISH apples in IRELAND. None of this west country malarkey
So Passed & Anchor-you're both wrong.
The Bulmers that you get in the UK is no relation whatsoever to the Bulmers you can get in Ireland that is branded as Magners in the UK. It is branded as Magners because the brand name Bulmers was already taken!
It's the gits who sit there drinking it over ice as if it's something special and not just cider! I have tried something similar, although I didn't look quite as cool pouring a tin of vat over the ice in my missus' empty V&C glass!
