Annapolis Cider releases Juniperry: Unfiltered Sparkling Perry

(Wolfville, NS) - Annapolis Cider has a new cider in their Something Different series. Juniperry is a 6.5% ABV unfiltered sparkling perry made exclusively from local hand-picked Flemish Beauty pears and infused with wild-foraged juniper berries.Flemish Beauty pears, an heirloom variety prized for its delicate flavour and fragrant aroma, were fresh-pressed and the pear juice underwent an arrested fermentation. Juniper berries, the seeds from coniferous juniper trees which give gin its distinctive flavour, were foraged from Peggy’s Cove and Prospect Bay, and then crushed and immersed in the perry for flavour extraction. The result is a pale-hued perry with a delicate woodsy aroma and a complex palate of sweet pear and balmy pine with a hint of citrus. $0.50 from each refill of Juniperry will be donated at the Town of Wolfville Volunteer Fire Department.
