For centuries in the Annapolis Valley, farmers have pressed apples and fermented the juice in cool cellars over many months as a means of preservation and to yield a diverse range of cider refreshments. Wild Wines & Spirits uses native and selected yeasts to ferment pure apple juice, pressed on-site from apples they hand pick themselves. The cider is fermented slowly over the cool winter months, aged in barrels and tanks, then blended and bottled the following year.
A full-strength, rugged cider partly aged in Bourbon barrels. Elevated alcohol and spice notes make this cider stand out from the crowd. This tawny-coloured cider offers notes of ripe, cellared apples, baked spiced apple, a subtle oakiness, and a spirituous, dry finish.
A field blend of Russet, Spy, Honeycrisp, and Spartan apples harvested late in the 2019 season was pressed, cryo-concentrated in the early winter, then fermented slowly with native yeasts. After two years aging in bourbon casks, Full Boar was then blended with other barrel-aged ciders from 2018 and 2020 vintages.
