To answer Martin's question on scrumpy...

>Is it available bottled in GB?
Not that I am aware. I'll keep my eyes open and let you know if I see any.

>Is scrumpy a subset of cider?
Yes, although scumpy contains lots more alcohol than usual cider (see below).

>Would someone call a pint of scrumpy 'cider'?
No. A pint of scrumpy would be called "lethal" or "a very bad idea".
people I know drink scumpy in half pints, that way you spill less when you
pass out.
