Beer inspired by Wellington (not the boot, the Duke!)

Beer Inspired by WellingtonThis year a Somerset-based craft cider maker is celebrating their bicentenary with the launch of Old Conky Cider. Old Conky not only marks two centuries of Sheppy’s, its name is also an affectionate nod to another historic notable, the first Duke of Wellington. The Duke of Wellington’s title originates from the famous Somerset town, Wellington, close to where Sheppy’s produce their premium cider.
