COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Characteristics
- Unparelled richness
- Inimitable complexity... made from a blend of many apple varieties, including rare heritage apples
- Warm caramel and baked apple flavour
- Made in limited quantities... each bottle is uniquely numbered and hand-signed
- A naturally made ice cider... without added sugar or alcohol

Serving Suggestions
Due to its richness and concentration of flavours, we recommend serving Signature on its own, as a digestif. It also pairs exceptionally well with blue-veined or aged cheese and orchard fruit or nut-based desserts.

2007 vintage. Aroma is insanely good. Straight up apple pie and brown sugar. Tastes delicious. Slightly boozy apple pie, caramel, and brown sugar. Cinnamon lingers in the finish. Perfect syrupy mouthfeel. Delicious.

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy sweet apples, honey, and a touch of vinous notes. It’s a transparent dark amber with no head...maybe a stray bubbles here or there. The flavor starts huge sweet apples, honey, and a touch of caramel. The finish has a slight amount of tart apple and a hint of alcohol. It’s full bodied with minimal carbonation and a sticky mouthfeel.

UPDATED: FEB 11, 2016 At Matt’s place. Very sweet apples and spices in the aroma. Almost same in the taste in which apples become sourer. Excellent.

mcberko (13254) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 10, 2016
2011 vintage. 200mL bottle, pours a hazy golden with a few bubbles of head. Aroma brings out baked apples, caramel, and butterscotch. Flavour is complex as hell, with notes of vanilla, butterscotch, baked apples, and caramel. Amazing depth, with loads of butterscotch and baked apples on the finish. Phenomenal.

200 ml bottle (vintage 2010) courtesy of Tommy, thanks man. Appearance is liquid gold with nice legs. Aroma is oak, green apple, and honey. Taste is light honey, it really opens up towards the middle with sour apple and more subtle honey sweetness. Full bodied. Extremely well balanced and a faint hint of alcohol. This is delicious!
