Our take on the classic Mancunian bitter. It takes it to a new level. This is so perfectly delicious, it can be quaffed in a couple of scoops. Perfect for any weather, it's proper refreshing and really quite moreish. Anyone who's tried Cruffatin will know we love a bitter and now we have two styles we're immensely proud of!
