Blake’s Hard Cider (BHC) released Celebration Mode, a mixed 12-pack comprised of BHC’s newest flavors, which is available across BHC’s 28-state distribution footprint. BHC’s Winter edition Celebration Mode features American Apple Imperial Style, Peach Party, Mule de Pomme and Grand Cherry.
Grand Cherry is the latest addition to the Kinder Cider Series of rotating specialty hard ciders benefiting BHC’s network of nonprofit organizations. The blend of Michigan Montmorency cherries, a hint of orange, and a touch of oak delivers a slightly complex Imperial hard cider coming in at 8.5% ABV.
BHC’s Kinder Cider Series supports its philanthropic initiative and raises awareness for diverse causes including Empowerment Plan, LGBT National Hotline, Keep Growing Detroit, and Pets for Patriots. Since the Kinder Cider Series began in 2017, BHC has donated more than $100,000 to its nonprofit partners.
“This year, we committed to being hyper-focused on product development to solidify and diversify our portfolio which led to several new innovative hard cider styles” said Andrew Blake, president at BHC, in a statement. “Imperials have gained popularity recently, with the success of our first imperial-style hard cider American Apple launched in August, BHC saw the potential to carry on the momentum this category is currently experiencing with the creation of Grand Cherry which celebrates Michigan apples and cherries.”
BHC’s final installment in its cocktail-inspired rotating Bar Cart Series, Mule de Pomme features a flavor profile of juicy pomegranate, bold lime, and a kick of ginger, the company says. Mule de Pomme (6.5% ABV) stands on its own or as a mixer to elevate a Moscow Mule, it adds.
The variety pack has a suggested retail price of $18.
