Inspired by a growing interest in rosé, Vermont’s Shacksbury Cider set out to create a rosé cider that would appeal to those who are looking for a low ABV product that can just as easily be enjoyed like wine in the summer.
For making its rosé cider, Shacksbury Cider describes that it ages the cider on Marquette grape skins from Vermont wineries; this helps to add a unique taste, pink color and texture to the cider. Alongside grape skins, the only other ingredient is apple, which is also locally sourced. Shacksbury Rosé is packed into 12-ounce cans and sold in four-packs.
The Shacksbury Cider embodies many of the same characteristics of a rosé wine, including that it is light, fun and pleasing to look at when poured into a glass.
