Bucking the trend that has seen sickly sweet ciders flood the market recently (if I never taste another Strawberry Lime Cider it will be too soon!), Mac’s have taken inspiration from their brewing roots and brought to market four stunning wee drops that will easily find favour with palettes of all persuasions. I love drinks that have a varietal for all occasions, I think this is why many of us gravitate towards wine. Cider can also produce flavours as varied and complex as other brews and ferments, you may just have to step out of your comfort zone to experience them!
Food and beverage pairing is difficult to get right and even more difficult to remember – for me at least! With their crafted ciders, Mac’s offer four stunning new flavours that won’t be forgotten; Cloudy Apple, Cranberry & Ginger, Blood Orange & Cardamom and Chilli & Lime. To make things a little easier for those of us who struggle with the complexities of menu planning, I’ve put together some handy infographics to ensure you always get your cider pairing just right! Take special note of the flavour scale which is now on all Mac’s beers and ciders, a #1 on the scale will offer refreshment and quenching relief while a #7 will leave you wanting to take your time and savour the intense flavour experience on offer.
This range brings innovation and a modern twist on classic cider while remaining true to the tart apple base which remains present throughout the range. Whether you’re a gumboot girl or a city babe there is something for everyone here, but you simply must try the Chilli & Lime. Get over the seemingly bizarre concept of a chilli cider and prepared to be wowed. This one’s a keeper for sure!
