Austin Eastciders is set to release their all new Austin Eastciders Blood Orange Cider, which will be available in stores on April 3rd. The easy-drinking Blood Orange Cider will be available in individual, 6-pack, and 12-pack 12 oz. cans in bars, restaurants, and other fine retailers, including Costco, HEB, and Whole Foods throughout Texas, New York City, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Virginia.
Blood Orange boasts a zesty, dry cider crafted with bright red Sicilian blood oranges, heirloom bittersweet apples, and American dessert apples. The Sicilian blood orange has a distinct, sweet flavor with light flavors of raspberry and grapefruit, which results in the cider being medium bodied and crisp with a hint of tangy citrus. The mouth-watering blood orange flavor is slightly more pronounced than a standard orange, but not so intense as to overwhelm the apple-forward flavor profile.
The tangy citrus adds a unique complexity to the effervescent cider and will delight cider drinkers, beer fans, and wine enthusiasts alike. Notes of ripe apples and orange zest make you want to dive into this cider, which is ultra refreshing, and reminiscent of drinking mimosas on a Sunday afternoon.
Blood Orange is the newest cider to join the Austin Eastciders family, which includes Austin Eastciders Original, Austin Eastciders Texas Honey, Austin Eastciders Hopped, and Austin Eastciders Pineapple ciders. All Austin Eastciders products are naturally gluten-free, not overly sweet, and have a smooth, dry flavor.
