Milo’s Magic – how it got its name!

Our currently available blended cider is named Milo’s Magic. You might be wondering why…

Well, the story is that this delicious cider is named after our very special old rescue dog, Milo. And one of his most wistful expressions is featured on the label.

Milo is about 12 years old and he’s a Staffy x Collie x German Shepherd, so quite the loveable mixture. Although not the most active of dogs – he has quite severe arthritis – he does like to know what is going on. He takes a keen interest in what is happening in the cidery and likes to have a regular stroll around. He is the sweetest-natured dog you could wish to meet. We rehomed him via the Oldies Club dog rescue, which is a rescue specifically for older dogs.

We were, quite frankly, amused that you can take Milo’s Magic to mean “Magic belonging to Milo”, which is what we think the cider is, or “Milo is Magic”, which he obviously is. It really doesn’t take much to amuse us.

We plan to name future years’ blended ciders after our other dogs. Next year’s is likely to be named after Millie, who is the most mixed breed dog imaginable (according to her DNA test results) and originates from Spain. She also came to us via the Oldies Club.

That’s enough about dogs! You’re hopefully here for the cider. See full details of our fabulous cider range.
