DENVER - August 1, 2019 - Molly’s Spirits and Snow Capped Cider are continuing their “fruitful” partnership with the release of their third collaboration: Rockies Rosé. The canned cider rosé, made from 100-percent Colorado-grown fruit, is available now exclusively at Molly’s Spirits.
Rockies Rosé is made with Colorado-grown Pinova apples pressed with elderberries and aged for six months, then aged again on Snow Capped Cider’s own Malbec wine skins from last year’s harvest for another six months. Rockies Rosé pours a rich rosy hue presenting light fruit and floral elements bright medium body and mouthfeel with a smooth finish.
“This canned cider collaboration is truly a unique product as most canned rose ciders are done by adding fruit juice, such as raspberries or hibiscus, to give it color,” said Molly’s Spirits Beer Manager Tony Doria. “Very few rosé ciders use red-fleshed apples to give it that classic rosé color and even fewer use all Colorado-grown ingredients.”
The Rockies Rosé is available in four-packs of 12-ounce cans at Molly’s Spirits. It joins the other popular collaborations between Snow Capped Cider and Molly’s Spirits – Prickly Pear and Prickly Pear II, their premium cider variety aged for 12 months in oak, then aged in Molly’s Spirits tequila barrels for six months and infused with prickly pear cactus.
Molly’s Spirits loves collaborating with local brands to bring unique products to market. This summer alone the liquor store has released two additional canned beverages, including a hard soda with Rocky Mountain Soda and their first private label product, Molly’s Rosé Bubbles, a canned sparkling rosé.
Be on the lookout for additional collaborations and private label products from the store in the future.
