Moles Brewery of Melksham is hoping to build its Black Rat brand with the launch of a new bottle format.

The medium?-dry cider is made from Somerset apples, and is now available in 50cl bottles.

“The 50cl bottle gives us the opportunity to get the brand known in a wider area,” said operations director Keith Reynolds.
