Ingredients

  • 4 cups apple cider
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 3 cinnamon sticks, plus 1 for garnish
  • 4 whole cloves
  • 1/2 piece ginger, peeled
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 1 1/2 cups bourbon
  • Lemon peel, for garnish
  • Granny Smith apple matchsticks, for garnish

Cider Crate Tasting Notes:

Smell: Medium aroma. Sweet whisky notes with aromas of apple, cinnamon, cardamom, caramel and butter.
Initial Taste: No bite. Smooth to consume with a honey crisp-like apple taste and an artificial whisky flavour.
After Taste: Moves to a more apple finish with spices becoming pronounced – especially cinnamon. An almost sweet tea finish with some bitterness from the whiskey elements lingering.
On ice: A little less carbonation and bourbon flavour. Shorter aftertaste and intensity.

Additional Notes: Growers Spiced Bourbon has sweet and spicy flavours that brings some warmth to the drink. The whisky/bourbon flavour makes it a unique, but not authentic spirit-inspired drink – as a true barrel-aged cider would. May work well in cocktails. Has a mixture of artificial and natural flavours.
