The Cider Revolution

April 25, 2014

CraigCider is one of the hottest sectors of the North American beverage alcohol industry!

Much like the explosion in the Cider Glamour_webpopularity of craft beers, cider is really making the same strides in its category- with growth of more than 60% in recent years! And the big boys are noticing with Budweiser, Miller and other mega breweries getting into the Cider game.

Why is Cider becoming more popular? Because it has broad appeal to both wine and beer drinkers and is often seen as a great alternative for those who don’t appreciate beer. Cider also tends to have just a hint of sweetness which makes it really refreshing and drinkable. Also, it’s not just about apples any more- there’s a variety of styles to choose from.

All of us at Wine Sense are please to be part of the Cider revolution- our Craft Series Cider kits come from the good folks at imake. imake is New Zealand and Australia’s DIY leaders when it comes to hand-crafted foods and beverages. And their Craft Series Cider kits are the leader in the industry. They only use the freshest and best quality fruit which is then pressed and cold filled. This care preserve the natural flavour of the fruit giving you Cider which is fresh, crisp and refreshing.

And it’s Easy! Simply mix the contents of the Craft Series Cider kit and top up to 23L in our our 32L sized Primary with Lid (it ferments and clears in about 10-14 days) and then you bottle. NO Carboy required!

So become part of the revolution and start making some Cider! Wine Sense has 5 styles of Cider to choose from including traditional Apple Cider, Mixed Berry Cider and more.
