The misunderstanding that allowed kids to get drunk

on

Many a kid was given cider as drink often on a Sunday at lunchtime because,amazingly,it was considered to be non alcoholic.

I used to run an off licence,and believe I know where this misconception comes from.

In recent times i.e. up until 1976,there was no alcohol duty on cider.I suspect that because there was no alcohol duty on cider,this became re-interpreted to mean that there was no alcohol in it!
