Ginger meets apple. Infused with fresh ginger grown in Northern California and hand pressed. Apple on the nose with a light tangy aroma. Spicy and sharp with a mild ginger finish. Also a dry unfiltered cider made from a dessert apple blend from Apple Hill, near Tahoe. This hard cider has no additional sugars or juice added post fermentation, so it is a legit dry cider. Unfiltered.
Apples are among the most genetically diverse fruits on the planet. Each seed contains a unique genetic code such that if you plant it, the fruit from the ensuing tree will be nothing like that of it’s mother. Traditionally, American hard cider was made from native apples trees that were considered too bitter to eat on their own. Most old time cider was not sweet, but rather emphasized the bright and brilliant natural acidity in these apples. Many dry ciders are aged in oak barrels and taste great both still or carbonated.
