PEI Liquor - Fall 2018


Tasting & Pairing

Tasting cider is not so different from properly appreciating beer, wine, or other alcoholic beverages. Cider is best served cold in either a tall glass or even a wine glass. Before diving in for a taste, swirl and sniff a few times before sipping. Have a look at the colour and clarity of the cider. Take a sip and take notice of the bubbles, the mouthfeel, the sweetness, the astringency and of course the flavours and aromas. Cider and food pairing can be a little tricky due to modern cider’s higher sugar content, whereas traditional or drier styles can be more versatile matches for foods.

Very sweet ciders are a great pair for glazed donuts or cheeses. Try: Okanagan Harvest Pear

Off-dry modern ciders are a surprisingly great pair for Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner, where their fruitiness and acidity are a great with turkey or pork. Try: Scow Craft Cider Traditional Dry ciders are wonderful paired with sharp cheeses, salmon and even fish and chips. Try: Strongbow
