Alcohol Spotlight: Angry Orchard Taps Into Seasonal Flavors With Release of New Cider: Angry Orchard Tapped Maple

 

 

 

 

New seasonal cider is not-too-sweet, made with a touch of Vermont maple syrup

WALDEN, N.Y., Feb. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, the cider makers at Angry Orchard announced the national release of its new seasonal hard cider Angry Orchard Tapped Maple, available now through April. Tapped Maple blends American culinary apples with a hint of maple syrup from Vermont maple trees for a not-too-sweet cider with a big, bright apple taste.

Because cider making follows a seasonal path alongside apple trees and harvest, cider makers are especially tuned into the seasons. At Angry Orchard's Cider House in the Hudson Valley of New York, the cider makers like to play around with adding seasonal ingredients to cider recipes to create unexpected, but seasonally appropriate, flavor combinations. For example, with Angry Orchard Tapped Maple, they took inspiration from the highly-anticipated late-winter tapping of maple trees to make something completely new. The base cider is made from culinary apple juice and is actually quite dry. The maple syrup – rich in flavor and natural maple sweetness – adds a delicate balance, and gives the cider a strong maple-forward aroma, and full, round mouthfeel. It's a great flavor profile for the last days of winter leading into spring's cool start.

"Like apples, not all maple syrup is created equal. The flavors can vary significantly from season to season and depending on production techniques," said Ryan Burk, Head Cider Maker at Angry Orchard. "My team and I visited maple farmers from across the Northeast to dive deeper into the qualities that make maple syrup unique, then took those findings back to our Cider House to incorporate this natural sweetener into a dry cider we'd been working on. Ultimately, we found a nice combination with Tapped Maple."

Tasting Notes from Angry Orchard's Cider Makers:

  • Tapped Maple (5.0% ABV): Made from apples high in acidity, the dry cider base is then backsweetened – a common cider making technique that occurs after fermentation – with maple syrup to achieve balance between contrasting flavors.  This cider is made from a blend of culinary apple varieties from the renowned Pacific Northwest region including Braeburn, Fuji, Granny Smith, Gala and Pink Lady apples. Tapped Maple offers a flavorful contrast to dishes like southern fried chicken or pork tacos, but also pairs well with classic hearty desserts like bread pudding.

The seasonal experimentation also led to another new limited release cider in Angry Orchard's Winter Orchard Sampler Variety Pack, Angry Orchard Spiced Apple. Spiced Apple combines a fresh apple taste with lively seasonal spices, much like a classic baked apple pie. A mix of culinary apples like Braeburn, Fuji, Granny Smith and Gala French, and bittersweet apples, such as Amere de Berthecourt, Beden, Medaille d'or, Michelin, and Binet Rouge were used in the making of Spiced Apple.

Having traveled the world exploring various apple varieties and ingredients and uncovering new processes and techniques, the cider makers at Angry Orchard continue to hone their craft as they develop inventive and refreshing styles for drinkers to experience. The cider industry has made a recent comeback, as drinkers have embraced hard cider as a go-to alternative to beer and wine, and it's carving out its rightful place at the table.

Tapped Maple is now available in 6-packs and the Winter Orchard Sampler Variety Pack nationwide through April 2017. Spiced Apple is available as a limited release in the Winter Orchard Sampler Variety Pack through April 2017. Suggested retail price for a 6-pack is $8.99-9.99, and $15.99 – 18.99 for a variety 12-pack (price varies per market).

About Angry Orchard Cider Company:
The cider makers at Angry Orchard have been experimenting with apple varieties, ingredients and processes to develop hard cider recipes for more than 20 years. The cider makers have travelled the world to find the best apples for cider making and chose specific varieties – like French bittersweet apples from Normandy, culinary apples from Italy and the Pacific Northwest U.S. based on each cider's desired flavor profile. In fall 2015, Angry Orchard opened a new home for research and development on a historic 60-acre apple orchard in the Walden, NY. There, the cider makers will continue to drive experimentation at the Innovation Cider House, and drinkers are welcome to visit for samples of exclusive ciders made on-site. Despite the recent growth of hard cider in the US, the category is still small and relatively unknown. Angry Orchard is committed to drinker education and awareness-building to help grow the category for all craft cider makers.

Angry Orchard makes a variety of year-round craft cider styles, including Angry Orchard Crisp Apple, a crisp and refreshing fruit-forward cider that blends the sweetness of culinary apples with dryness and bright acidity from bittersweet apples for a balanced flavor profile. Angry Orchard also makes The Cider House Collection specialty ciders, as well as a variety of seasonal ciders.

About the Company

As a runner, Pip was always on the lookout for delicious things to eat before heading out into the great outdoors. As a firm believer that food should be super tasty, yet packed with nutrients and energy, she began making her own nut butters.

Determined to keep things simple, she removed refined sugars and palm oil to celebrate the mighty nut, then added other natural ingredients for an extra flavour kick.

Before long, Pip & Nut was being sold at Maltby Street Market in London, but Pip‘s small scale production just couldn’t fulfil the demand. Happily these days you can find our nut butters in Selfridges and other leading stores. Follow the news for more of Pip‘s ramblings and progress.

Snack Spotlight: EPIC Maple Bacon Pork Cracklings

 

 

MAPLE BACON PORK CRACKLINGS

A wholesome version of an iconic American snack food, our pork skins are created using traditional methods inspired by our grandparent’s generation. A blend of organic, non-GMO, pastured, and antibiotic free pork combined with simple seasonings are the foundation for this simple, yet nourishing approach to creating enchanting food that is both time tested and trusted by consumers.

 

What is a crackling? A crackling is a fried pork skin taken from the shoulder region of a hog. The shoulder skin is a tougher texture and has less subcutaneous fat when compared to the back and belly. As a result, when cooked, this part of the hog has a harder and crispier bite than a pork “rind”. Lastly, cracklings contain small pieces of meat that adhere to the skin. Unlike pork rinds, this adds extra protein to your new favorite snack!

 

The Whole Animal Project: In efforts to honor the brilliant animals EPIC Provisions sources, our traditional cooking oil allows us to use more of the whole animal. This “nose to tail” commitment creates more nourishing food from spectacular creatures and produces less waste. Eat EPIC.

About the Company

Oddly enough, the roots of EPIC were planted shortly after Katie and I became vegetarians. We wrongly believed that a “clean diet” was plant based and in order to replenish our bodies after hard workouts, we consumed large amounts of soy and other highly processed proteins.

To compound the stress we were putting on our systems, we followed the advice of sports nutrition “experts” and prescribed to a diet that was high in carbohydrates and low in fat. As a result, we were making ourselves unintentionally sick with gastrointestinal distress and a myriad of inflammatory ailments.

Not knowing what to do, we decided to go vegan and when things got worse, we decided to follow a raw food diet.

About the company

Nom was born out of a fruitless search for easily accessible foods which were tasty, but didn’t contain any refined sugars and nasties. I developed allergies while at university, around the same time that my mum was diagnosed with cancer. As a family, we became fascinated with how diet and nutrition can affect overall health. I really believe in adding value to a diet. Actively eating good, nutritious stuff, rather than simply cutting out the bad!

I wanted to make free-from foods which were appealing to everyone, not just those with an allergy or intolerance. Eating healthily is easy if you’re at home and have access to ingredients and cooking facilities, but eating nutritious food on the go is a lot harder. I knew that there was a gap in the market for products which combine health, taste, and convenience – so I started making nom bars in the kitchen at home. They soon became popular with family and friends and after only a few months, they launched into Planet Organic, Whole Foods and more.
