On Shelves January 19, Herbal Tea Inspired Cider Blends Local Apples with Ginger Root and the Aromatic Earthiness of Turmeric.
NELLYSFORD, VA—Bold Rock Hard Cider has announced the release of its first seasonal cider of 2019, Ginger Turmeric. The new spring seasonal will be available on shelves January 19 accompanied by release party’s at Bold Rock’s Nellysford Cider Barn and Mills River Cidery. Ginger Turmeric is an herbal tea inspired cider made with locally grown Blue Ridge Mountain apples paired with the distinctive spice of ginger root and aromatic earthiness of turmeric. This is the first time Bold Rock has released a spring seasonal in January, and the company is looking forward to 2019 being the year of innovation.
“Exploring cider blends has always been a passion of ours, but we have typically stayed in the vain of using fruit. The Ginger Turmeric felt like a good pairing with the natural sweetness of our apples,” says head cider maker, Ward Beveridge.
Founded in 2012, Bold Rock makes a variety of hard cider styles from apples picked in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia and North Carolina. The award-winning craft cider company operates two cideries: An original Bold Rock Cider Barn in Nellysford, VA, which features an innovative production facility and tasting room overlooking the Rockfish River Valley, and a recently expanded second production facility and taproom in Mills River, NC.
