Rumrunner is an amazing cider. It is made from a blend of certified organic heritage apples including Winter Bananas and Winesaps. The apples are hand-pressed then slowly fermented with Champagne yeast. Sounds pretty standard so far, eh?
Well once the cider is made, the amazing part begins. This cider is completely transformed when aged in rum barrels. Not only does the cider pick up brown sugar and butterscotch aromas and flavours, but time in the barrel increases richness and complexity.
This is a semi-dry sparkling cider with 12% alcohol. It has a caramel colour, as you might expect from a dark rum. The tannins from the apples, combined and softened with tannins from the barrels give this cider substantial structure.
Rumrunner is packaged in a clear 750 ml bottle with resealable top. The clear bottle is a great plus with such a fantastic colour.
Keep a few bottles on-hand for special occasions with friends and family.
