We use champagne yeast in all our ciders and ferment for them 10-14 days. We then cold-filter 4 times and carbonate them before bottling or kegging. It is 5% alcohol by volume with a lovely pear nose and a smooth semi-sweet mouth feel with a dry finish.
Our Ace Perry has won awards across the US and overseas. In 2011, it got 93 Points and a Gold Medal at the Beverage Testing Institute in the Chicago Cider Tasting. This was the most points given for any cider. In 2007, it was entered into the Royal Bath and West Show in the UK and won Best Bottled Cider in the International Category.
Pear Ciders for me can go two ways. One this is great! Two: This taste like piss! This one was thankfully this is great! I admit I can be a snob towards American made ciders, I often find they are lacking a strong presence. However, this one was pretty damn good. By good I mean, it didn’t last very long and I was saddened I had only bought one.
It’s sweet enough to give you a full taste but not overly sweet that you are left feeling like it alcoholic sugar water. It’s dry but not overly dry and leaves the ability to go “ahhh” after a sip. These are the perfect accomplice to any game or movie night. The males and the females can appreciate this one without feeling ashamed. Another plus, is that it’s quite easy to find and for a decent price. I bought one bottle and it was around $2.50 for one not including tax which isn’t bad. I’ve had some that were $8.00 a bottle and were poured down the drain after a couple of sips. Is this may favorite pear cider, no, but will it be a back-up for when they don’t have my usual – you bet. I make this great sweet and spicy porkloin that I know this perry cider would just hit the mark with. I’ll let you know if that’s true and maybe I’ll share the recipe with you, so you can try the duo yourself.
So next time if you’re out and you are wanting something reliable and new, I would give this a try. I mean for the price, what have you got to lose. It’s not like that $5.00 frappuccino that left you with heartburn and a scolded tongue. 🙂
About the Company:
Thanks to Ace Cider – America’s Best – the cider business in America is growing rapidly. There really is a refreshing alternative to beer and wine and it’s ACE!
Unfortunately, some ciders never see an apple and are poor representations of the category. They’ve really given hard cider a bad name. Many ciders are far too perfumy (almost Jolly Rancher-tasting) and are quite a put-off to those seeking a crisp alcoholic refreshment. Some ciders are very dry and barnyard tasting, especially some of the imports. We challenge you to take a taste test of your own if you don’t believe ACE ciders are truly America’s Best!
Our Award-Winning ACE Ciders are very pure, clean, and refreshing because we use ONLY the best eating apples for our juice and the best ingredients we can buy. There is a big difference between ACE Ciders and other brands on the market, we guarantee it!
We realize that the cider industry in the United States has been weakened in the past by some poor quality ciders on the market and some consumers have been turned off. Now is the time to try something new and exciting to drink! ACE Ciders are great refreshment, chilled on their own and elegant enough to bring to the dinner table, pour in your favorite glass and have with a variety of meals.
