BX Press The Hostler
This cider showcases the potential of dessert apples such as Golden Delicious, Jonagold, Spartan, MacIntosh, Gala, and Ambrosia. With a small addition of crabapple and cider fruit to provide layers of crisp complexity, The Hostler is a light, refreshing cider with notably fruity apple notes.
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.
