Ciders

The growth of cider’s popularity in this century has led to a greater variety on shelves. It’s not just apple anymore; almost any fruit is now in a cider, either alone or in a blend. Cideries have also been employing different yeasts, barrel aging, adding hops, honey, and other ingredients; in short, playing around with the product much the way craft breweries have been spawning new beers. This year’s winners exemplify this. The Best in Class is Lone Tree’s Cranberry Apple Dry Cider, a rose-coloured blend that is crisp, flavourful, and not too sweet. Their Ginger Apple Dry Cider is refreshing, and packs a little heat from the ginger on the finish. David Nuttall
