Years ago, this used to be one of the few hard ciders available in St. Louis. We have not seen in years. Back finally.....
Blackthorn Hard Cider....$8.99 / 4pk Cans
One of the country’s best known and widely drunk ciders, it’s heart is in the West Country where it’s affectionately known as ‘Thorn’. Exactly why it’s called Blackthorn® is shrouded in mystery.
CIDER APPLES MAKE THE DIFFERENCE
Only cider apples are used in the making of Blackthorn®. We think using cider apples help make the best tasting cider. They have the right balance of sugar and tannins to create the best flavour.
We use a good number of ‘Bittersweet’ cider apples in our blend. Bittersweet cider apples have low acid levels and high tannins – the perfect combination for the crisp dry taste of Blackthorn®.
