Cherry Beach

Cherry Beach

Listen: 

Cherry Beach cider has tiny, streaming bubbles that elegantly tingle your tongue. There are aromas of red cherries reminiscent of Pinot Noir and subtle apple undertones with wisps of vanilla.

The red cherry continues into the flavour with a pleasing tartness that is mingled with fresh summer melon. This cider has a nice balance of flavours and tannins with a touch of citric acid. You will find a noticeable medium finish that lingers in your mouth.

The batch I tasted had a lovely golden, salmon colour and was slightly cloudy giving it a very natural appearance for a well made craft creation. This cider is mostly dry with a touch of sweetness. It has 7.3% alcohol and was fresh-tapped at BRU Restaurant in Oakville for me to taste.

I understand from the cider maker, Chris Haworth, that this cider was made with Niagara Montmorency Cherries and aged in Pinot Noir barrels. Sour cherries, Pinot Noir and apples, yum!

I highly recommend you try this one.

Hopped Cidah

Hopped Cidah

Listen: 

Hopped Cidah is hand-crafted from 100% fresh pressed Maine apples that were conditioned with cascade dry hops for two weeks. This amazing cider has a golden colour with a soft haze.

There are very forward aromas of dry hops and tangerine with subtle vanilla notes. Streams of elegant bubbles rise in the glass as a result of natural bottle conditioning.

This dry cider was not filtered or pasteurized. You will enjoy flavours of apple and tangerine with citrus hints. This cider is well balanced with good tannic structure. It is an excellent example of "wild" fermented cider.

It is packaged in 750 ml bottles and has 6.5% alcohol.

Orchard Oriole Perry

Orchard Oriole Perry

Listen: 

Orchard Oriole Perry is wonderfully crisp. It has just the right amount of effervescence with streams of elegant bubbles rising to the top of the glass.

This ‘estate’ Perry was hand-crafted from Taynton Squash, Brandy, Thorn, Winnals Longdon, Normanschein Cidrebirne, Gin, Butt, Hendre Huffcap, and other bitter perry pears of English and Austrian heritage. It has a light straw colour and lovely fresh, clean pear aroma.

Flavours of fresh squeezed pear juice mingle with a great structure, producing a slightly off-dry cider with a nice tart finish. The tannins in this cider also give it a satisfying dryness on the finish as the smooth, rich flavours coat the inside of your mouth.

This cider has 5.9% alcohol and is packaged in a 750 ml Champagne style bottle.
