Armada, MI – With the spring weather in Michigan just starting to turn, Blake’s Hard Cider Co. has introduced Aurora, a fresh cider new to their seasonal lineup. Aurora is made with fresh-pressed, Michigan apples from Blake Farms, handpicked Rosemary, an assortment of tart lemons and of course all natural peaches.
In an attempt to mimic the cosmic embrace the sun & atmosphere create lights with – they’ve paired peach & rosemary with a bright touch of lemon. Trade in the flannel for a t-shirt and get ready to sing “Hell yeah, I remember Aurora.” Michigan’s leading craft cider producer is announcing warm weather is finally here to stay.
“Just because it’s winter on the farm doesn’t mean that we don’t find ourselves out in the orchard planning for the upcoming season,” said Robert Lauer, Cider master for Blake’s Hard Cider Co. “The anticipation of the summer months made me think of grilling with all the pruning wood from the trees. If you’ve never had grilled peaches after some rosemary marinated lamb chops then you’re missing out. We were really leery of going overboard on the rosemary and are pleased that the lemon peel subdued its influence on the cider.”
Aurora will be available to Blake’s Hard Cider distributor partners in Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, and North Carolina in 22 oz bottles, 1/6 bbl & ½ bbl kegs. Select bottle shops and grocery chains will carry Aurora in bottles.
