Thornbury Village Cider is a tangy and lip smacking beverage that strikes the perfect balance between being refreshing and flavourful. This Cider is not overly sweet, strong, or complicated, however the nose on this beverage is incredibly aromatic.
Head cider master Doug Johnson and his amazing staff at Thornbury Village in Ontario have worked hard to produce extremely appealing aromas of apple, pear and sparkling white wine. The flavours aren’t as strong on the nose, which makes this quite the quaffable cider as it never comes across as boozy. Instead, this is simply a well-crafted beverage that smells great, offers semi-sweet apple and pear flavours, and finishes dry and long.
Here are four great foods that we recommend Thornbury Cider with:
Apple Cranberry Stuffed Pork Tenderloin Paired with Cider
Thornbury Cider is phenomenal with our apple Cranberry stuffed pork tenderloin recipe. The tangy flavours of this cider cling on to the succulent meat merging and creating a divine meal experience. Pork Tenderloin isn’t overly strong, nor is Alexander Thornbury Cider so neither the food or beverage will overwhelm one another. Pork is also slightly sweet, and the semi-sweet nature of Thornbury Cider will complement this sweetness well.
Thornbury Cider and Cheddar Cheese
Rich cheeses love the carbonation present in this cider as it helps cut through the creaminess of cheddar cheese, refreshing your palate for the next bite. As it slices through butterfat and salt, the ample acidity in this cider elevates the nuanced and complex flavors in the cheddar cheese.
Best Wine Alternative for Thanksgiving?
While Thornbury Cider is not a wine, it has similar qualities to white wine in that you can smell apple and pear on the nose. The semi-sweet nature of this cider makes it perfect for the sweeter root vegetables often served at Thanksgiving. This cider is also great with Turkey as the acidity in this beverage keeps the mouth moist and brings out all the great Turkey flavours forward.
Sausage and Cider
If you’re not particularly fond of wine or Mimosas and find yourself at a brunch, why not try Thornbury Cider. The carbonation in this beverage scrubs past all the grease, fat and salt found in sausage and bacon, making for a great combination as the true flavours of the food really shine.
Thornbury Cider is also perfect with sausage on a bun at the country fair, a ballgame, or at an autumn backyard bbq!
