Big Rock Brewery has expanded its Rock Creek Cider portfolio with the launch of Rosé Cider.

The new beverage has been crafted using freshly pressed apples that are sourced from the Okanagan region in British Columbia, Canada.

With 5.4% of alcohol-by-volume (ABV), the pink-hued dry cider is made using a combination of European apple varieties, including Bulmer’s Norman, Belle de Boskoop and Bramley.

These are combined with champagne yeast, cinnamon, vanilla and ginger.

“The taste is crisp and clean, with apple, strawberry, floral notes and a nice effervescence.”

Big Rock Brewery brewmaster Paul Gautreau said: “I’m excited for our Rock Creek Cider fans to try this new recipe. The taste is crisp and clean, with apple, strawberry, floral notes and a nice effervescence.”

Rosé Cider is claimed to be a gluten-free drink that will be available for a limited time at Rock Creek’s Calgary brewery beer shop and select liquor stores across Alberta, British Columbia and Saskatchewan.

Big Rock Brewery marketing director Susanne Fox said: “In a beautiful clear flint glass bottle, it’s as fancy or laid back as you want it to be.
