Third day and you’re still with us!
It’s December! Stay in, lay by the fire, and warm up with some Wool Socks.
Temp Note: This cider should be chilled to 45ºF.
This seasonal beverage is from Charlotte’s first ever cidery, Red Clay Ciderworks. Founded in 2015, they make distinct, naturally gluten-free, hard cider made from North Carolina apples.
Inspiration and Taste Profile
Wool Socks is mulled black currant cider inspired by the Swedish drink Glögg. Glögg is a hot mulled wine with added sugar, spices, and sometimes liquor. It is traditionally drunk in the winter around Christmas time.
Red Clay’s lightly-sweet cider uses fermented apple juice, black currant juice, orange peels, and mulling spices (cinnamon, cardamon, etc.) to make the perfect winter beverage.
