Let’s sip on cider this season.
“You’ll see a smiling face, a fireplace, a cozy room” with a pint of ever-glazed Strongbow Artisanal blend Jollying up the Christmas cheer this year.
Strongbow Hard Apple Cider newest flavor, Artisanal Blend has surprisingly turned into my choice for this year’s cup of cheer. With fresh produce and natural ingredients, Strongbow has been bringing these flavors of the Orchards and farmlands for 125 years all across the world.
Strongbow strives to combine its unique favors with craft foods and delinquencies. The Strongbow Artisanal blend is the newest addition to the range of Award Winning Ciders. The cider is crafted from their own apple from orchards in UK and Belgium.
The Artisanal Cider was inspired by trends seen in the everyday market that coincided with the Strongbow heritage, one being the trend of artisanal products. This ultimately means pulling away from the artificial factors and going back to the traditional roots of farming fresh natural ciders. Progressing back in a time capsule, whether it is centuries or millenniums, one can see that farmers have been making their ciders on their farms with the character from their own heirloom apples. These ciders would create a hazy coloring, more semi-sweeter after tone with a rustic feel that never missed out on the full farm fresh character flavor. The Strongbow Artisanal Blend borrows from that ageless tradition. Thus, making for the ideal Holiday Cup of Cheer. Cheering to the past and future under one gracious rooftop.
With about one million apple trees and 20 varieties of apples, Strongbow continues to stand strong as a full-bodied delightful Cider the will not disappoint your taste buds. A Strongbow secret, that I have the delight in sharing on the starry blissful night, is the key to an immaculate Artisanal Blend, “Is not only using a culinary apple in a cider blend but combining it with a bittersweet apple that doesn’t look very appetizing. Personally, I wouldn’t recommend eating little bitter-sweet Apples by hand, but the sharp, bitter, and tarty sour taste blends perfectly with the sweetness of the Culinary Apples.” -Dr. Paul
Similar to what the Cider Masters created, a little bad with a little good, one can conquer seeing your distant family on the holiday goes the same way. You wouldn’t want to see your loud third Uncle removed, every day but the season wouldn’t be the same without him around.
Take it from me, grab a cup of cheer, Strongbow Hard Apple Cider Artisanal blend will lighten the mood and make for a Holly, Jolly Christmas this year!
