The mighty blackberry is a tenacious invader of Vancouver Island orchards, but a touch of its sun-soaked sweetness added to apple cider makes for a sinfully delicious blushing semi-dry sparkling cider. Raise a glass of Sea Cider’s Bramble Bubbly, and celebrate Vancouver Island fruit at it’s best!
Bramble Bubbly combines the best of BC cider apples with wild local blackberries. Vancouver Island’s native species is called ‘The Trailing Wild Blackberry,’ a cousin of the Himalayan Blackberry. Bramble Bubbly is produced by milling and juicing our apples, and adding champagne yeast to begin fermentation. Fermentation happens at cool temperatures to maximize the aromatics of the cider base. Finally, blackberries are added to achieve the rose hue and luscious blackberry flavour.

Aromas, flavours: Green apple, orchard leaves, blackberries, confectionery notes.

Suggested Food Pairings:
This is an ideal sipper for the patio—thirst-quenching on its own for a summer day, or anytime with a salty snack. Bramble Bubby is perfect for a post-beach libation, and for the base of a unique sangria. Anything goes!
Pairs with salmon, summer salads, berries, outdoor barbecue, mild or sharp cheeses, cured meats, and poultry dishes. Also pairs well with desserts—warm apple and berry crumble, bite-sized bonbons, or vanilla ice cream. Pairings are only limited by your imagination!
