After Mr. Fox's fight with Rat, we have the following scene:
Mr. Fox: All these wasted years, what were you looking for, Rat?
Rat: Sssss …
Ash: He's trying to say something, Dad.
Mr. Fox (scooping up a handful of a thick, dark, syrup): Here you are, Rat. A beaker of Bean's finest secret cider.
Rat: Like melted gold.
What does this scene mean? Wasn't Rat already guarding Bean's secret cider cellar? When Mr. Fox first robs Bean, we see Rat drinking from a beaker of cider. So, what gives? Was that not the secret stuff?
