Ballyhook Flyer Cider is golden amber in colour with a nose of red apples, orange peel and caramel. It’s classified as a Breton-style, dry sparkling cider, despite being crafted with 100% Irish apples.
On the palette this craft cider is dry, with both fruity and savoury flavours. The medium-body exhibits fine tannins and a long finish thanks to its natural refreshing acidity. Low carbonation allows the apple crispness to shine through. In the same way that wine doesn’t taste like grapes, this cider has a lot more on the taste buds than just apple. Slight seasonal variations will be noticed due to the characteristics of Irish apples in each vintage. Sugar is never added, and it’s gluten-free.
