We had blackberries, frozen, on hand. Apparently, much like the Python’s elderberries, they do not go well.
Unlike our raspberry concoctions, the blackberry cider didn’t taste very good. It was always good enough to be drunk, but no more. We argued over who had to drink it.
The label’s nice though.
Just, we don’t make it again, unless we’re proven otherwise.
Maybe ageing will make it better. A bottle or two is sitting in our ageing cabinet.
