The Five Bottle Pack
A 5 bottle pack of all our current 750ml bottles:
Dabinett & Cunard:
Josh and Patricia of Taproot Farms planted one of the first cider variety orchards in Nova Scotia. “Dabinett and Cunard” highlights the fruit of their labour with varieties like Chisel Jersey, Ashmeads Kernel, Caville Blanc d’Hiver, Kingston Black and Yarlington Mill. The Dabinett component was brought to us via the UK as unadulterated juice and fermented slow and cool in steel for one month. The blend was then aged for one year in French oak. “Dabinett and Cunard” opens with bright fruit framed by gentle citrus and woodland grass, these notes dissolve into tannins of soft caramel and toffee. A moderately chewy finish rounds out the profile of this lively, dry cider.
7.3% ABV, 750ml bottle
Wild Strawberry Pét-Nat:
Iceolation is a sweet lightly carbonated ice cider, crafted from Golden Russets. It is the perfect companion for staying the blazes home. Richly textured with a hint of apricot on the nose and a honey, stone fruit palate. It’s sharp- sweet balance frames and lengthy finish. ABV 10.0%, 750ml bottle.
Dabinett is made with a special batch of apples that were grown and pressed in the UK and the juice was shipped across the Atlantic Ocean to be made into cider here in Halifax. Dabinett is made with Dabinett Apples, grown at the Colcombe House Estate where Colcumb House Ciders are made. The bitersweet Dabinett is a traditional English cider apple (one of our cider maker Jay’s favourite cider apples in the world) and the result is a traditional English cider taste. Floral apple aromas starts the sensory experience, where the soft astringency is balanced by grippy tannins and pulled together by light carbonation. A thoroughly dry cider aged for six months.
ABV 6.40%, 750ml bottle.
