Say hello to Izzy and Reed, two new craft ciders for the Indian market from Thirsty Fox, a label under Trillium Beverages. Currently available only in Mumbai and Pune, the craft ciders will soon arrive on shelves across Delhi-NCR, Bengaluru and Goa.
The company sources the raw materials, apples and botanicals, from family-owned farms in Somerville, Massachusetts, USA. The raw materials are imported and then undergo processing and bottling at the company’s facility in Nashik. The entire process, from crushing and pulping to fermenting and maturing is done in small batches to maintain the highest quality.
Thirsty Fox has already won acclaim as ‘India Cider of the year, 2020’ at the New York International Cider Competition and bronze at the Asia International Beer competition, 2020. Both the ciders are gluten-free and Reed is vegan as well.
Izzy is a golden-hued cider with a hint of citrus honey (6 per cent ABV) while Reed is a ruby-red cider with notes of cherries and peppercorns (5.4 per cent ABV). Izzy pairs well with seafood and fruit-based desserts while Reed goes great with cold cuts, barbecued meats as well as pastas and pizzas.
