Ten66 Red Label Brandy distilled and aged in French oak wine barrels, is then blended with fresh non-alcoholic sweet cider and returned to barrel for extra aging. Multiple barrels and vintages are carefully blended to yield the most balanced flavor. The nose is baked apple tart tatin, and the palate has a background of vanilla and spice.
Ten66 Gold Label The “Golden Barrel” was so expressive after nine years of oak influence we chose to release it in 2014 as a single barrel bottling. The cask was originally filled in 2009 with mistelle blended from our first batch of brandy that had been aging since 2005!
Our Red Label Hard Cider originates from a field blend of Soons apples including Crispin, Idared, Empire, Spartan and McIntosh. This bottle-fermented and conditioned cider is unfiltered and extra brut. Bottled with a cap, the cider is designed to age in the bottle. With clean, fresh apple nose, the body and color are both light and Prosecco-like. Younger bottles focus on fresh apple skin, while older bottles develop a creamy texture with a toasty apple taste and underlying notes of Pecorino and Gorgonzola Dolce.
Our Gold Label Hard Cider is created from the best heritage varietal apples at Soons Orchard. Vinified using méthode champenoise and bottled with a champagne stopper and cage, the results are semi-sweet, balanced, and crystal clear. Light and delicious, our Gold Label Hard Cider boasts rich apple aromatics and a palate of toasty apple and biscuit.
