Introducing Crispin Georgia
COLFAX, Calif. (October 14, 2013) – For many, the sound of the rain or a distant midnight train brings Georgia to mind. Now a cider will summon similar thoughts of the Peach State with the release of Georgia, a new barrel aged offering from Crispin Cider Company. Available as a limited release, this cider is chock-full of southern class. From mint to peach juice this cider cries American southern soul from the first sip to the last drop.
Let’s kick off this ride with the sweet goodness of Georgia peach juice. Georgia peaches have a high quality combination of sugars, acidity, aromas and textures making it a seamless integration into the unpasteurized, fresh-pressed juice already being used in Crispin’s super premium artisanal ciders.
An elegant, spicy blend of Crispin’s Colfax Classic apple-wine superbly aged in bourbon American whisky barrels. The final blend is finished with Georgia peach juice, a mention of mint and a touch of Tupelo honey, also aged in bourbon barrels.
Georgia offers a drinking experience and flavor profile like no other. Georgia has full, rich whiskey notes right up front with smooth toasted oak and vanilla. The peach juice provides a velvety lushness with a mere hint of mint to bring it all together. This 6.78% (678 being a Georgia area code) alcohol by volume cider packs full flavor and full body.
So how might one enjoy this beverage? The optimal sip scenario for Georgia is at the cellar temperature of 50/55 F. Grab a snifter or a tulip glass and get ready for greatness. When pouring, use a solid bottoms-up tilt and swirl the bottle to disperse the sediment evenly. This unlocks the whiskey aromas and a unique bouquet.
