Winemaker(s): Tariq of Revel Cider
Hyssop is an ancient herb related to mint. Its flavour is somewhere in between mint, grassy basil and cinnamon bark.
Ostara Hyssop is a cider aged on golden plums for 8 months, with hyssop grown organically by our friend Nick Querques.
The herb seems to have tamed the plum acid to make this cider much softer in a really interesting way. Ostara Hyssop is a little soft, a little herbal and a little spicy.
