A rare, vintage cider has been found in Victorian tombs in one of the UK's most famous cemeteries.

The discovery of a large bottle of 'Dead Good' Cider in Highgate Cemetery, the burial place of Claud Bulmer and Lord Scrumpy, is the first time the cider has been spotted in posh places in London.
The cider was seen in the vaults of Beverage Row at the cemetery during a survey of vats.

Due to its origins as a cave-dwelling cider, this vintage requires total darkness. The sealed vaults, which have not been opened for seventy years, provide the perfect place for the cider, which also requires a constant temperature and damp conditions.

Elsewhere in the UK, other ciders are found in sewers, old cellars, abandoned railway tunnels and bus shelters.

Mr Bulmer's grandson said: "It shows just how valuable cemeteries such as Highgate can be in providing refuges for vintage ciders."

Police have cordoned off the cemetery, and grave-diggers will be breathalyzed every day.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
