Raspbarrel – Oak & Apple Cider + Raspberry Brandywine
Finnriver Oak & Apple Cider 6.5% abv
A foundation of bright citrus in this cider is layered with a smooth whiskey depth and spicy rye spirit. A fine, craft cider that showcases American oak, Northwest rye whiskey, and a select blend of Certified Organic Washington apples from the Yakima Valley. Fermented in stainless steel tanks at low temperatures to capture the full ester profile of the apples and then aged for 12 to 16 weeks in rye whiskey barrels from High West Distillery in Park City, Utah. Woody astringency balances the acidity, and then finishes with lovely toasted oak and vanilla notes.
