South City's first attempt at oaking a cider for Liquid Gold's two year anniversary. This cider starts off light then transitions to a juicy mid-pallet of black cherries and finishes tart with hints of oak and vanilla throughout.
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.
