Intent on producing cider that matched the quality of their beer, the Felons team did their homework: they did cider tastings, made pilot batches, trialled different juices, and eventually landed on one from Stanthorpe and a recipe they were proud of.
Rather than going down the sugary-juicy end of the cider spectrum, they decided to make a sparkling cider that looked and felt like drinking champagne. Its bright, light lemon colouring is mesmerising, with champagne yeast and high carbonation bringing glitter and gleam to the glass. Granny Smith apples are used for the base juice, but the real flavour comes from the blend back of Fuji and Pink Lady, bringing a burst of almost sherbetty-apple flavour that works well with the effervescence. A cider to celebrate.
