Big Rock Rock Creek Cherry Cider
Cherries are nature’s way of letting you know your tastebuds are alive. So when we were deciding on what ciders to brew, cherry quickly made its way to the top of our list. Of course, regular cherries wouldn’t do for our demanding brewmaster, he picked Okanagan Montmorency cherries for their wonderfully pink colour and complex flavour. As always though, a taste is worth a thousand words so here’s to you and bottoms up!
Made from fermented apple juice, cider comes in a number of varieties. English cider is dry, with fruity, tannic qualities and low carbonation. This can be found cask-conditioned in England. Normandy is another major cider-producing region, with a sweeter, more effervescent, very complex style. Ciders produced elsewhere are often sweet, simple beverages for mass consumption, though there are some good English-style ciders in North America and Norman-style ciders in Quebec.
