Who said cider’s just a summer bevvy? Not Old Mout Cider.
Just in time for winter, our expert cider makers have created one of the hottest new drinks. An innovative take on cider and a unique alternative to mulled wine, Hot Berry Cider is the first ‘best served hot’ cider to be introduced into New Zealand.
The seasonal get-together of crisp apple cider and luscious summer berry wine – this intense black cherry-coloured beauty has a vibrant smell of boysenberries, cherries and cranberries, with a touch of fizz. Take some time to mull it over.
Sales & Marketing Director of Old Mout Cider, Scottie Chapman, says being the first to introduce a hot cider variant in the market is an example of our commitment to provide innovation and creativity to our cider lovers, all-year-round. “We pioneered the fruit cider category in New Zealand, and as New Zealand’s largest independent and dedicated cidery, we’re always looking at ways to craft new and appealing ciders for those of us who appreciate exceptional quality and taste,” he says.
Hot Berry Cider is at its juicy best when gently heated (don’t boil) on the stove or in a microwave. To spice things up, add a few winter spices such as cinnamon, cloves and star anise, and garnish with fresh orange slices (if you’re a bit fancy). Plus it’s a must have with your favourite winter roast.
Hot Berry Cider (8% Alc) will be available at selected supermarkets and various retail outlets nationwide from the end of May with RRP $15.99 for the 1.25L PET bottle.
We think it’s pretty good!
