Day 11 Drink: Crispin Honey Crisp Artisanal Reserve

Crispin Cider is a relatively new brand founded by Joe Heron, the man behind Nutrisoda, which he created and then sold to PepsiAmericas. There are four varieties of Crispin on the market, all using west coast apples. The makers recommend pouring them over ice, which is a departure for most traditional ciders.

Crispin Honey Crisp Artisanal Reserve is made with organic honey. It pours a cloudy straw color, with a slight effervescence and a fresh apple nose. The texture is smooth with a moderate sweet palate. Refreshing and fairly clean. Goes well with roasted chicken or as a cocktail pour.
