Angry Orchard Hard Cider Comes to Canada

Toronto, ON

The cider makers at Angry Orchard today  announced that Angry Orchard Crisp Apple hard cider is now available in Canada, just in time for summer patio and BBQ season. Since its U.S. national debut in 2012, Angry Orchard has become the number one selling cider brand in America. Hard cider is one of the fastest growing beverage categories in Canada, and with this growing popularity, Angry Orchard is eager to  introduce its hard ciders as a high-quality, refreshing alternative to beer and wine. Angry Orchard is now available in Ontario, British Columbia and Alberta and will roll out to the rest of Canada later this summer.

The cider makers at Angry Orchard have experimented with different apple varieties and fermentation methods for more than 15 years, looking to perfect the craft of cider making. The cider makers discovered that Italian culinary apples and French bittersweet apples were best suited for the flavour profile of Angry Orchard Crisp Apple. In Normandy and Bretagne, France, farmers have been growing cider apples specific to cider making for hundreds of years. Unlike ordinary apples, these bittersweet apples impart certain tannins, acidity and flavours lending body, mouthfeel and complexity to the cider. The culinary apples from Italy have a juicy, ripe apple character that, when combined with the bittersweet apples, results in an exceptional blend that contributes to the complex flavour profile of each Angry Orchard cider style.

“We have spent years crafting the perfect blend of carefully selected ingredients to create the highest-quality Angry Orchard ciders. We’re proud Canada can now taste the ‘fruits of our labour’ and believe that Angry Orchard will satisfy drinkers looking to discover a crisp and      refreshing beverage with a complex but balanced flavour profile,” says David Sipes, cider   maker for Angry Orchard.
