Chocolate-tinged cider blends cocao nibs, caramel and apple
For Valentine’s Day is Woodchuck Cellar Series Chocolate, the third cider in the line. The blending of cocoa nibs with a hint of caramel culminates in a dry finish along with a full apple flavor. Infusion of beans brings out natural chocolate notes without sweetness typically found in chocolate bars, according to the manufacturer. Pasteurized and featured in a 22-ounce bottle, Cellar Series Chocolate has an alcohol by volume of 6.9% with an SRP of $4.99.
