Smooth Operator: Introducing Crispin Honey Crisp
The Crispin Cider Company upends the traditional apple cart again with genre breaking new Crispin Honey Crisp -- a uniquely American cider embodying classic European craftsmanship with a New World vitality to create a new style of hard apple cider with a pedigree all its own.
"Crispin has always been inspired by where we came from, however Honey Crisp is inspired by where we are now. A cider with a classical heritage, but its eye firmly on the future." says new US citizen Joe Heron CEO Crispin Cider Company.
Artisanal Reserve. A small batch, hand-crafted, super-premium hard apple cider, Crispin Honey Crisp is smoothed with real organic honey for a creamy, rich, full-bodied and crisp taste. Honey Crisp is vinted to a 6.5% ABV for robust yet smooth refreshment from the first crisp sip to the last drop.
Cloudy Filtration. The embodiment of artisanal style, Honey Crisp boasts a rack-aged cloudy filtration process. Discerning drinkers will find in each bottle a residual apple wine sediment for a smooth full-bodied flavor that's true to the apple and good to the last drop. Honey Crisp drinkers are encouraged to pour the last sediment in to their glasses for deeply satisfying refreshment.
A uniquely earthy, fruity bouquet. Crispin Honey Crisp's authentic cidery aroma is redolent of crisp apple notes, softened with hints of honey echoing the orchard.
Naturally fermented. Uncorrupted by added malt, spirit or grape alcohols, Crispin Honey Crisp is free of added sugar, colorants or sorbate or benzoate preservatives, and is filtered cold for crisp refreshment.
The Greatest Adventures Happen Over Ice: Crispin Super-Premium Natural Hard Apple Ciders are designed to be enjoyed over a glass of ice for crisply satisfying refreshment, Honey Crisp continues with this vision and is exceptionally smooth tasting over ice.
"The combination of super-premium ingredients and hand-craftsmanship yields a hard cider of exceptional smoothness and nuance, yet surprising boldness and confidence," says Joe Heron, founder of the Crispin Cider Company. "Honey Crisp is a distinctively American cider, with a new world swagger and confidence that complements its natural refinement."
The same sophistication and nuance that elevates Crispin Honey Crisp to the status similar to fine wine makes it a natural ally in the kitchen. "It subdues spicy food, brings out the subtlety of seafood, and complements a full bodied steak," explains Heron. "Honey Crisp's light carbonation also stands up to bar fare, from pizzas to brats and burgers." On the other end of the spectrum, the Honey Crisp's brisk refreshment adds dimension to fine cheeses, oysters, Asian and Latin cuisines, and even cured meats.
In addition to Crispin Honey Crisp Artisanal Reserve Cloudy Hard Cider, the Crispin Cider Company also produces European-style Natural Hard Apple Ciders in Original, Light and Brut varietals. The company is based in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
