Linda’s Fall Picks
Double Hill Oistre
Located in the hills of Caledonia, Prince Edward Island, Double Hill thrives on creating top-quality cider. This bright golden cider is made in a dry style, with fine soft bubbles, aromas of fresh from the oven buttery pastry, baked apples and freshly zested lemon.
Double Hill uses a blend of apples sourced wild apple trees and cider apples from the orchard, giving this cider a refreshing crispness balanced by bitter tannins. This delightful new local cider would make the perfect pairing for its namesake – Fresh Raw Oysters (Oistre) on the half shell and a beautiful addition to your Thanksgiving dinner.
