I think they do apple brandy there as well. I can just see car parks of drunks making a mass exodus to Lincolnshire Laughing

"This is probably the world's largest permanent collection of cider and perry. Part of a working farm and countryside centre, a flint farm building houses a vast array of cider and perry polycasks. You can try before you buy and there is also a wide selection of bottles ciders, meads, English country wines, fresh apple juice and draught Sussex ales."

Sounnd like a great place to visit!

it is fantastic, my son and his partner live in brighton and we go to see out granddaughter quite a lot, the farm is a working farm with rare breeds and a jersey dairy heard and my granddaughter love it, thats where i first tasted 'real cider' and i was hooked and its true what they say, you can taste as many as you like before you buy, they also sell the ciders in the farm restaurant, if you are ever on the south coast its worth a visit, it is on the A27 about 8 miles from eastbourne heading for brighton. :D
