Cider with Herbs/Spices


Overall Impression
Like a white wine with complex flavors. The apple character must marry with the botanicals and give a balanced result.

This is a cider with any combination of “botanicals” added. Hopped ciders are included in this category. Other examples are ciders with “apple pie” spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice), ginger, lemon grass, herbal tea blends, etc.
