Newtown Pippin, Black Twig and Royal Gala apples fermented dry with an English cider yeast. This batch started as batch 007. After fermentation and aging we split 007 in half and back sweetened this half to a medium dry cider before putting it in a keg.
It is amazing how slightly back sweetening can impact the characteristics of a cider. The additional sweetness gives am more pronounced fruity flavor and aroma wile softening both the tannin and acidity. The results are a cider more likely to whisper sweet nothings into your ear.
Rain or shine this is a cider that loves a lazy sunday afternoon with friends.
Drink this cider on its own or pair it with food. Here are a few paring suggestions to get you started:
- Mild cheeses
- Hawaiian Pizza (ham and pineapple)
- Grilled pork
- Grilled white meet
- Mac and Cheese
