Basil Mint Hard Cider

Category: Specialty Cider

Date Tasted:
Country: USA
Alcohol: 6.9%
Bright color. Curious, herbal aromas and flavors of margherita pizza and menthol mint lozenge with a silky, tart, dryish light-to-medium body and a tingling, involved, long finish imparting touches of lemon-basil vinaigrette on endive, spiced green apple, and edible flowers finish. A fun herbal-spice cider that will be a blast with Middle Eastern cuisine and gin cocktails.

Specialty ciders include all ciders that do not fit neatly into other categories. These ciders may be barrel-aged, dry-hopped, spiced, made with single or heirloom apple varietals, fermented with an exotic or wild yeast strain, or any combination of these techniques. Ciders in this category have a diverse set of flavors, aromas and alcohol content. Most specialty ciders have seasonal or limited availability, but are becoming more readily available year-round as the category grows in popularity.
