Ciderboys Introduces Lemon Cello Hard Cider

LemonCiderboys Cider Co. (Stevens Point, Wisconsin) has officially launched Lemon Cello, an Apple Limoncello Hard Cider, as its latest Limited Release offering.

Inspired by the bright yellow limoncello liqueur that is so popular in southern Italy, Lemon Cello is a Hard Cider that balances “two different natural lemon flavors derived from fresh Florida lemons — one for aroma and the other for the flavor —” with the sweetness from the base apple cider.  Described by the cidery’s quality team as “not too tart but not too sweet either”, Lemon Cello (5% ABV) “is abundantly aromatic and overflowing with a sweet, zesty fresh-lemon flavor.”

“Consumer response to Ciderboys Lemon Cello has been amazing so far,” said Julie Birrenkott, Director of Marketing for Ciderboys. “Most people like sweet lemon-flavored beverages and foods, and Lemon Cello’s robust citrus aroma and flavor combined with the sweetness of our apple cider makes for a truly refreshing drink. It’s no surprise that it has been well-received in the marketplace.”

Lemon Cello was introduced in late September 2018 and will be available as long as supplies last.  You can expect to find this Limited Release offering available in 6-packs of 12 oz. bottles and on draft at select cider-friendly establishments located in Alabama, Florida, Wisconsin and throughout the rest of Ciderboys’ distribution footprint.  Prost!

CiderboysZenBottleCiderboys Cider Co. (Stevens Point, Wisconsin) recently announced that Zen Berry Apple Boysenberry Hard Cider has officially hit the market as the cidery’s latest Limited Release offering.

The folks at Ciderboys created Zen Berry by combining “the sweetness of apple cider with the fruity tartness of boysenberry, a hybrid of raspberry, European blackberry, and American dewberry first developed in California in the 1920s.”  With the help of those boysenberries, Zen Berry (5% ABV) comes together to be a deep maroon Hard Cider that is “[swirled] with handpicked apples to form a quenchable yin-yang” between sweet and tart.

“Ciderboys fans enjoyed two limited-release flavors last year, Blackberry Wild last fall as well as Royal Blueberry, and they were very popular. Limited release Ciders are a great way to showcase Ciderboys’ innovation and craftsmanship,” said Julie Birrenkott, Ciderboys’ Marketing Manager.

“We offered Zen Berry on tap at the Point Brewery Pointoberfest on September 16 and the response was incredible,” she added. “If you like hard cider, you are going to love Ciderboys Zen Berry.”

Zen Berry is out now and will hang around as long as supplies last.  You can find this Limited Release offering available in 6-packs of 12 oz. bottles and on draft at cider-friendly establishments located in Alabama, Florida, Wisconsin and throughout the rest of Ciderboys’ 33-state distribution area.  Prost!
