Red Branch, Hard Cherry Cider arrived in, in a mixed case of Honey and Apple and Peach flavoured 500ml swing top bottles.
Red Branch are an award winning Cider producer from Sunnyvale, California. Pretty heavily carbonated, which both myself and my Saturday night dress experienced first hand.
This is definitely not girly cider. The alcohol content comes in just .1% below 7%. The nose is fresh raspberry, citrus and slightly sherbety. After the initial 'I just swallowed a Soda Stream' - my highly carbonated mouth and nose subsided- slightly uncomfortable!!. It gave way to flavours of fresh cherries, raspberries and grapefruit. Surprisingly tart with very little residual sugar evident on the finish. This is not Fruit cider as we know it. Kopparberg and Rekorderlig fans - maybe not your bag!!
Available in Deveney's of Dundrum.
