Thirsty Thursday: Dr Pilkington's Miracle Cider

Thursday September 20, 2012 Written by wilfred

Curly hair, left-handedness, and an inability to whistle are just three of the "troubles" Dr. Pilkington's Miracle Cider claims to combat. While what it promises may be pretty outlandish, Dr. Pilkington's definitely delivers on cool packaging and great taste.

Launched in June, this Australian alcoholic apple cider is dry, crisp, and not too sweet. It comes in a big 500 ml bottle with the tagline, "When it works, it's a miracle". Each bottle features a cartoon of a top hat and monocle-wearing Dr. P, and lists the ailments it might possibly cure, from "bath breath" and "barking" to "The French". This magic elixir is available at most of the larger booze retailers in Australia. Choose carefully because who knows? Maybe it WILL do what it promises.
