Winter Warmers & Cozy Feels
Who’s ready to snuggle up by a fire with their favorite adult beverage?
The holiday season is back and that means it’s also winter warmer season! What is a ‘winter warmer’ you might ask? Generally speaking, Winter Warmers’ have a slightly higher alcohol content then your average beverage to keep you toasty from the inside out. Cider, wine, mead, cocktails, the style of the drink itself doesn’t matter; it’s all about the ABV and the warm feeling you get from your head to your toes!
Bad Apple is one of our classic winter warmer ciders. Infused with meadow foam honey and aged on toasted white oak give you a hint of sweetness with a cozy bite. At 10.5% ABV this cider isn’t for the faint of heart.
Another perfect cider to transition you to the cooler weather would have to be Tropical Mayhem. It’s balanced acidity and sweetness tastes like liquid sunshine and is here to remind you of brighter times. Coming in at a solid 9% ABV, it’s sure to whisk you away to paradise.
Looking to get slightly more adventurous in your Winter Warmers journey? Look no further, then Nectar Creek’s mead. Now most people probably don’t think of mead as being a winter warmer. What we tell those people is…you’re wrong.
Right now Nectar Creek offers 3 mead varieties, Nectarade, Cluster and Top Bar. My personal favorite for this time of year (honestly any time of year) is Top Bar. Locally roasted coffee beans collide with fresh meadow foam honey to create this wonderfully balanced mead. Bold coffee flavor and aromas up front with a touch of honey sweetness on the finish. At 8% ABV across the board, you really can’t go wrong with any meads.
For those who might want to try a new take on an old tradition, Bold Leaf Wine is made for the adventurers at heart who don’t have time to lug wine bottles around. With three varieties of Oregon wine, there’s a little something for everyone. Whether it’s Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris or Bubbly Rosé, you can’t go wrong with quality wine in the most convenient packaging; cans! Ranging from 12-14% ABV these dynamic ready-to-drink wines go down smooth.
Our spin on classic dessert beverages, Pommeau, our apple wine, and Marissimo, blackberry-apple wine, both come in at a whopping 19% ABV taste like pure joy. A little on the sweeter side of life, one sip is sure to make you smile. Both pair beautifully with chocolates, desserts and lots of pie.
Really what we’re trying to say here is that you can’t go wrong with any of these delightful beverages. Find your fav and get your cozy on!
