    NO.
    This is complicated.

    What we call Magners is actually Irish Bulmers.

    The name Bulmers was sold to a UK company ages ago, and when the cider over ice thing kicked in 10 years ago, the company who owned the rights to Bulmers AND the company who made real Bulmers both pushed products in the UK - but real Bulmers was given the name Magners

    Confused yet?

    Ironically, I've always preferred UK Bulmers to Irish Bulmers/Magners

    Was in a few "gin bars" on NYE. Baffling tbh, how can there be so many gins?

    It is piss easy to make, by any chance?

    Dunno if this is true but I was told the magners with ice was started because the bottles were too big to stand up in a typical bar fridge.

    Visited a gin factory in Mahon a few years ago . From what I recall think its relatively easy but I could be wrong . There was dozens of different flavours on the sampling tables :)

    Aye it's just distilled vodka with some bark berries and orange peel added.

    It'll be cider, but it wouldn't be very nice. Not after a month. Give it 3-6 and it might be though.

    I tasted it the other day and it was very harsh so I will just keep it in the cupboard under the stairs for a few more weeks. I have an IPA to make also but I want a pressure barrel for that!

    There is a gin bar in Sutton Coldfield.

    Like making brandy it’s just distillation of wine! Buy one of them water distillers and put wine in rather than water. Might get wrong off the law like or make people go blind

    If anyone is up in Edinburgh looking for something to do for a couple of hours I can highly recommend a Pickerings Gin distillery tour. Great value for tenner and plenty of gin to taste whilst there.
