Fortified Ice Cider, ‘Royal’ [2015], Kite & String

  • Following a passion for port wines, Royal Cider was born. Beginning with a high-acid blend of heirloom apples cold-concentrated in the winter of 2015 to 40+ brix. Fermented to 13% ABV, then fermentation was arrested via fortification with apple brandy to 18% ABV. Barrel-aged to soften the edges and allow the brandy to settle in. Naturally clarifying, requiring no filtration.
