  1. Scrumpy

    Scrumpy is a term often used for ciders made in West Country of England, particularly a band through Devon, Somerset, Gloucestershire and Herefordshire, though it may also be found in Kent, Sussex and East Anglia. The term is especially used to distinguish those made locally in smaller quantities and using traditional methods from mass-produced branded ciders. The name is believed to derive from the obsolete dialect term "scrimp", meaning a small or withered apple, which also gave rise to the verb "scrump", meaning to steal fruit. It can be applied to basic home made ciders as well as to commercially produced and marketed varieties. Scrumpy can be dry or sweet. However, it tends to be stronger in alcohol and more tannic than most commercial ciders. It is often cloudy in appearance, and is usually still rather than carbonated. Scrumpy is usually very pulpy.
