PEI Liquor - Fall 2018
WHAT'S YOUR CIDER STYLE?
Specialty Ciders are open to a lot of interpretation from individual brewers, which means that the list of specialty styles is ever-growing! Some specialty styles include hopped or spiced ciders, barrel aging, sour ciders and ice ciders. Any cider that has fruit juice other than apple is technically considered specialty (except for pear juice-it has it’s own category called “perry”). “Rose” or blush ciders are also becoming more popular; a pink hue is achieved by crushing apples with red skins or sometimes adding food dye. Sparkling ciders also fit into this category; although most ciders have at least a little carbonation, some are carbonated through the addition of carbon dioxide and still others are carbonated through the labour-intensive “methode Champenoise”. Try: Somersby Red Rhubarb Specialty Heritage or “Traditional” ciders are made with both eating and heirloom cider apples, and can also include wild or crabapples. These ciders are usually higher in tannins than modern ciders, and are often fermented using wild yeast strains that are naturally present on the apples (as opposed to commercially cultivated yeasts). Traditional ciders are often made on a smaller scale and are usually dry or off-dry, and complex in their flavours and aromas, making them a great pair for foods.
