Following Red Stag Black Cherry – Red Stag Hardcore Cider is described as a “different breed of bourbon”.
Beam Inc’s general manager, whiskies, Chris Bauder, said: “Since its history making introduction in 2009, Red Stag has helped fuel rapid growth of flavour innovation in the category.
“We’re excited to extend our flavour leadership with the Red Stag line, which has seen double-digit growth every year. We are confident Red Stag Hardcore Cider is the perfect, versatile flavor addition for the fall season.”
