Orleans Bitter is hand-crafted from a blend traditional and heirloom varieties of apples that were winter cold concentrated and fresh pressed. It was then infused with red currants and blended with dandelion, gentian and angelica bitters. The word that comes to mind is "amazing".
This cider has an amber orange colour and aromas of fresh cut fennel, smokey cherry wood and sliced apples. There are intense flavours of apple, currant and spice with a long, silky smooth finish.
At 16% alcohol, this dry, aromatic cider really warms your cockles. It is packaged in a 750 ml bottle with resealable top.
The cider maker suggests you use this to make classic cocktails such as Negronis, Manhattans and Americanos. However I recommend that you sip it on its own as an aperitif.
