While searching a local international market we stumbled upon a shelf of dark purple dried leaves labeled Jamaican Sorrel. Mead with exquisite ruby coloring and slightly floral notes. 12.5% ABV.
This modern style cider has a deep, mahogany color and caramel nose. Apple notes are rounded out with a smooth, honey finish. Orange blossom honey and Belgian candy syrup are added before fermentation to enhance the flavor and allow an ABV of 7.5%. The Dark Cide(r) is finished with more orange blossom honey and Michigan apple juice.
