Inspired by the Roman Goddess of Apples, Pomona is a concentrated elixir crafted by freezing then slowly fermenting crabapple juice, yielding a dessert cider with apple and confectionery notes. Raise a glass to the Apple Goddess!
Sea Cider’s Pomona is named for the Roman Goddess of Apples, which seems a fitting tribute for this decadent and richly concentrated cider. Our Pomona is crafted as an iced cider by first concentrating the natural sugars of late harvest certified organic crabapples through freezing the juice. A cool fermentation using a Sauterne yeast is followed by a two-year aging process in stainless steel to achieve a silky mouthfeel and soft fruit notes of apricot and peach. Both the acidity and alcohol are high to balance the confectionery flavours. Truly a cider fit for a deity.
Aromas, flavours: Confectionary notes with hints of orange, apricots, and cloves.
