The pertinent bit is:
"the provisions of this Regulation shall not apply in the case of any person in respect of whom the Commissioners are satisfied that his main source of livelihood is the cultivation of land for his own profit and that he does not regularly carry on business as a seller of cider"

Like a lot of Irish law, it's wooly (how often is regularly?)

The relevant part of section 10 of the 1940 finance act which refers to an exemption for farmers.....

"the provisions of this Regulation shall not apply in the case of any person in respect of whom the Commissioners are satisfied that his main source of livelihood is the cultivation of land for his own profit and that he does not regularly carry on business as a seller of cider"

.....was repealed and removed by section 83 and the first schedule of the finance act 2003, so has not been in existence since then.

David Llewellwyn was brought to court in 2004, and won (in 2007). I wonder was it for pre-Finance Act 2003 cider?

Hi all,
We are Kinsale Mead Co and we have recently opened the doors of our new Meadery here in Kinsale, Co. Cork.
We currently have two Meads for sale;

1). Atlantic Dry Mead---> This is a delicious traditional mead, made from raw Spanish orange blossom honey and local Innishannon water, fermented and matured to finish at 12% with lovely citrus aroma and long lingering hint of honey with almost no sweetness. We wonder if over time the salty air from the wild atlantic will add its own unique flavours to our mead.

2). Wild Red Mead--->This is a refreshing melomel made from spanish forest honey blend, blackcurrants and cherries to create an amazingly enticing drink with beautiful colour, zesty fruity flavour, tempered with the hint of honey. Wild Red is in honour of Kinsale’s famous red headed pirate Anny Bonny who was born close to the high cliffs by the Old Head.

Our Meads are available in the following places in this link; https://www.kinsalemeadco.ie/stockists/

If anyone has any questions we will try to reply as fast as possible or you can contact us directly and find out more through our website: http://www.kinsalemeadco.ie/

In the meadtime :wink:
All the best,
Kinsale Mead Co.
