Makers gathered in their masses,
Just like brewers at black masses.
Clever minds don’t plot destruction,
Sorcerers of cider’s construction.
In the tank the cider’s churning,
As B. Nektar keeps on turning.
Black Currant Cider for mankind,
Enlivening their thirsty minds…Oh lord yeah!

Now in darkness, cider stops churning,
Currants in and all are yearning.
Now Death Unicorn has the power,
Thirsty minds want to devour.
Day of packaging, no more storing,
Through the tap Death Unicorn pouring.
It’s delicious, all have sworn,
Death Unicorn, laughing, raised his horn…Oh lord, yeah!

Death Unicorn

Hard Cider With Black Currant

Appearance - Ruby red and clear with a slightly fizzy, off-white head that lingers on the rim.

Aroma - Tart black currants, berries and crisp apples with a slight barnyard funk.

Experience - Tart up front rounded out by a gentle sweetness. Black currant and crisp apples compliment each other nicely. Refreshing berries cover the tongue. A mild acidity compliments the tartness and balances with the sweetness. Medium body and a crisp finish with a lingering sweet/tart flavor.


Type: Cider

Alcohol: 6%

Package: 500ml bottles and 1/6 barrel kegs

Food Pairings:

Wild mushroom risotto, Gruyere, blue cheeses, smoked salmon, light cheesecake
