USED TO BE that there was only one real choice for the cider drinker in an Irish pub: Bulmers.

It didn’t matter if you particularly liked it or not, you drank it and that was that.

That all changed when Orchard Thieves crashed onto the market in 2015, taking a load of Bulmers taps with it. “What’s this?” we cried. “Why are they replacing our beloved cider with this sweet shite?”

And then slowly, it began to wear us down. Eventually, some people were admitting that Bulmers was now too bitter for them compared to Orchard Thieves, much to everyone’s shock.

Now Bulmers has started a new ‘trendy’ ad campaign to appeal to the youths, and it seems like it’s conceding defeat to Orchard Thieves. But what is the truth? Which one is indeed the best?
