Tesco seem to have it in 1 litre bottles https://www.tesco.ie/groceries/Product/Details/?id=276956270

Most supermarkets probably have something similar or alternatively you could get it from a local juice supplier in your area.

If you want to buy concentrate then you'll have to Google.

What I do is boil down 3 litres of Lidl AJ to about 1.5L to 1 L and use that.

Are you Pasteurising or just drinking quickly?
Remember: The Nationals are just round the corner - time to get brewing

At a recent party I just put 10l of AJ from Lidl in a keg and carbed.
For the folks that wanted sweet they just added the kegged cider and the AJ
