Revel - Whistling In The Dark (Vermouth Soda) / 355mL
Revel Cider (Guelph, ON)
The base for these cans was Whistling in the Dark - a red vermouth made with apples, cherries, blueberries and De Chaunac grapes. Revel built a garden behind the cidery and carefully picked a few exciting, seasonal botanicals to add to it. After making the vermouth Revel barrel aged it for a few months, and blended it with house-made soda water before putting it into these beautiful cans. It has the following botanicals: Anise Hyssop, Yarrow, Roman Wormwood, Common Wormwood. The aroma here is blueberries, cherry leaves and anise with a touch of yarrow. The flavour is stewed berries with a slight sweetness from the fruit. A kiss of wormwood bitterness balances the soda, drying out your mouth in preparation for your next sip.
