Prepare to tantalize your taste buds as we uncover the magic that happens when this exceptional cider is paired with different culinary delights!
Our Okanagan dry cider stands out among its peers with its crisp dry and refreshing taste! Apples are harvested in the picturesque landscapes of British Columbia and crafted in small batches in North Vancouver. This cider boasts a delicate balance of sweetness and acidity, accompanied by a subtle fruity aroma. Its versatility makes it a perfect accompaniment to a wide range of cuisines, from light and delicate dishes to hearty and robust flavours.
Pairing with Cheeses and Charcuterie:
One of the most classic and timeless combinations is cider paired with an assortment of cheeses and charcuterie. The crispness and acidity of our cider will beautifully cut through the richness of creamy cheeses like brie or camembert. For a contrasting flavour experience, try pairing it with tangy and aged cheeses such as old aged cheddar or gouda. The cider’s subtle fruit notes create a delightful harmony when enjoyed alongside an array of cured meats and pâtés.
Harmonizing Seafood and Poultry:
When it comes to seafood and poultry dishes, this cider proves to be an excellent partner. The cider’s refreshing qualities work wonders with dishes like grilled shrimp, ceviche, seared scallops, or poached salmon (yum!). Its crispness cleanses the palate, allowing the delicate flavours of the seafood to shine through. For poultry enthusiasts, pair the cider with roasted chicken or turkey, as the acidity helps to cut through the richness.
Elevating Spicy and Asian Flavours:
Our cider can be made in a sweeter style and it is no stranger to spicy cuisine. Its refreshing nature provides relief from the heat, making it an ideal companion to dishes like spicy Thai curry or flavourful Indian cuisine. Additionally, the cider’s subtle fruit notes harmonize beautifully with the complex flavours found in various Asian dishes, from sushi and sashimi to stir-fries and dumplings.
Indulging in Dessert Pairings:
Lastly, let’s not forget about the even sweeter side of things! In this style, cider can be an unexpected yet delightful partner to desserts. The cider’s crisp acidity acts as a palate cleanser, balancing the sweetness of treats like apple pie, fruit tarts, or crème brûlée. It also complements the creaminess of vanilla ice cream, adding a refreshing twist to a classic combination. Get ready to explore a whole new world of dessert pairings with this versatile cider.
From cheeses and charcuterie to seafood, poultry, and even desserts, this exceptional cider has proven its ability to elevate and enhance a wide range of culinary experiences. So, the next time you’re planning a meal or hosting a gathering, don’t forget to include our cider on your menu for an unforgettable taste sensation. Cheers to the perfect cider pairings!
