Our Orleans Aperitif Sampler Trio includes:
**Orleans Herbal Aperitif: ** This elegant aperitif cider was developed in collaboration with maître liquoriste Deirdre Heekin. Using our Northern winter cold to concentrate fresh-pressed cider from Vermont apples, we fermented the concentrate to make a pure dry cider infused with a special blend of Vermont-grown herbs. Refreshing and aromatic, Orleans Herbal has delicate apple flavor and white floral, honey, and anise notes. Serve over ice with a twist of lime, or use it in cocktails.

Orleans Bitter Aperitif: Using our Northern winter cold to concentrate fresh-pressed cider, we fermented the concentrate to make a pure dry cider, and then infused it with red currant and blended it with dandelion, gentian and angelica bitters from Urban Moonshine® in Burlington, Vermont. Orleans Bitter is perfect for making classic cocktails such as Negronis, Manhattans and Americanos. It may also be used as an aperitif over ice by itself or with sparkling water.
Orleans Wood Aperitif: Our newest aperitif is a stunning combination of aged cider infused with spruce tips, wormwood, sweet gale, wild mint and infused with raw honey. Use in classic cocktails recipes like a Last Word, Daisy, or Bijou. Or add pear juice and soda water for a refreshing, more sessionable libation.
