Middlebury, VT (PRWEB) March 07, 2017
Vermont Cider Company™ announces its latest addition to its premium craft cider segment – Cerise, a barrel-aged seasonal, offered for a limited time.
Available beginning in March, Cerise is the second of several barrel-aged ciders that will be offered seasonally, in addition to the year-round flagship cider Addison, a premium craft cider brought to you by the Vermont Cider Co. brand. Both are made with 100% fresh pressed apples from Sunrise Orchards in Cornwall, VT, located less than 10 miles from the Cidery.
It’s a limited-time offering that will delight the senses. “Cerise is built from our barrel-aged, 100% local and fresh pressed cider with the juice of tart Michigan Montmorency cherries,” said Ben E. Calvi, Director of Cider Making. “Aging cider in Napa Valley barrels infuses notes of Cabernet wine, vanilla and oak with fresh apple and a tart cherry fruits.”
Initially offered exclusively in the Northeast, Cerise (6.9% ABV) will retail for $10.99 / 12oz 4 pack. It will also be available in 5.2 gallon kegs.
