CALGARY, Feb. 11, 2019 /CNW/ - Just in time for Valentine's Day, Big Rock Brewery (TSX: BR) has launched a brand-new Rosé Cider as the latest addition to their Rock Creek Cider family. Inspired by rosé winemakers, this pink-hued premium dry cider is handcrafted with fresh pressed apples sourced entirely from the Okanagan region as the number one ingredient. Like all our Rock Creek Ciders, it's naturally gluten free.
"I'm excited for our Rock Creek Cider fans to try this new recipe," says Brewmaster Paul Gautreau. "The taste is crisp and clean, with apple, strawberry, floral notes, and a nice effervescence."
Key Ingredients: English-style cider apples: Bulmer's Norman, Belle de Boskoop and Bramley, champagne yeast, natural rosé wine flavour, cinnamon, vanilla, and ginger.
Character: Refreshing Champagne bubbles produce a crisp and clean mouthfeel, while the flavour is more dry than sweet with fruity and floral notes.
"In a beautiful clear flint glass bottle, it's as fancy or laid back as you want it to be. Think cocktail parties, brunches, lunches, backyard gatherings, or just enjoying a great tasting drink on your favourite patio on a sunny spring afternoon," says Director of Marketing, Susanne Fox.
Rock Creek Rosé Cider is available for a limited time only at our Calgary brewery beer shop and select liquor stores across Alberta, British Columbia, and Saskatchewan. Pick it up for that special someone today and share the love.
