We have just released our first barrel aged cider!
When we decided to make a barrel aged cider we started musing about it, as we tend to do, around family dinners, and many of us are bourbon fans. So we decided to make a bourbon barrel aged cider with our Apple Pumpkin Spice Cider. As it turned out, some freshly dumped bourbon barrels had just become available to us from Lawrenceburg, Kentucky where a certain species of holiday fowl type bourbon is made. This particular brand of bourbon had A LOT to do with the bird in Dottie's iconic mural on our label, and Ramona's historic place as Turkey Capital of the World once upon a time. We've all seen the lovely Dottie Richardson welcoming us to Ramona from the East for a few years now on a mural commissioned by the H.E.A.R.T. Mural Project. So, we thought we would bring you a bit of fun Ramona history and support the H.E.A.R.T. Mural Project while you enjoy our tasty cider.
It is the complete holiday dinner in a glass. You've got the turkey in the bourbon barrel, and the taste and smell of pumpkin pie in the Apple Pumpkin Spice cider. We think it will be a great addition to Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner tables everywhere.
A special thanks to Dottie's Family for letting us use her iconic picture and their wealth of knowledge!
Another special thanks to the H.E.A.R.T. Mural Project for letting us use their mural and all their help!
