Red Stag Hardcore Cider

August is coming to an end and fall is creeping up on us. That means hard cider in our pint glasses – and now in our Red Stag bottles, as well.


Hardcore Cider is the latest release from the bourbon whiskey brand. We all know there’s nothing like a crisp cider in the fall and apparently Red Stag feels the same way. Channeling the hard cider world, Hardcore Cider infuses whiskey with apple cider (not the hard stuff, sorry) and other natural apple flavors. The end result is a mix of bourbon spiciness and crisp apple flavor.


As the newest addition to the Red Stag collection, Hardcore Cider joins Black Cherry, Honey Tea and Spiced Cinnamon flavors. The 80-proof cider whiskey launched nationally last week at $17.99 a bottle. It’s still a little early for us to be drinking anything cider flavored but when the time is right, we might give this a try. Let us know if you give it a taste.
