Neige Ice Cider
I will admit that I was originally drawn to Neige ice cider by La Face Cachee de la Pomme based only upon its amazing packaging - it was pretty simple but strong and made the actual product stand on its own without screaming at me to buy it. As as the story goes BECAUSE it was so restrained I wanted to learn more. Neige ice cider is from Quebec and is getting awards left and right. Its sweetness is offset with the tartness of apples creating the perfect balance. So, my friends, did any of you had it? Is it good as I'm thinking it might be?
And the packaging! Neige would make a great gift for somebody too. (And no, I was not paid to be this excited about the product, I promise)
