Revel Cider - Ostara: Chamomile (2020)

Apples, golden plums, organic chamomile. Wild ferment.

Plums and petals are two of our favourite things. Like all ingredients we use, both are fleeting. Transient yet punctual in their annual rhythms.

Ostara Chamomile began as a wild fermented cider on golden plums. Our native microflora chewed on the plums over 8 months, slowly releasing all of their goodness. We then aged the cider further on organic chamomile flowers, which we grew ourselves.

Revel Cider & ibi wines started in 2014 as a solo passion project. Imagine our excitement when it turned out that, hey, lots of folks are fermentation enthusiasts!

By 2021, our team was seven people strong — with over 1000 cases of Revel cans and bottles shipped to discerning drinkers every month.

Our characterful native yeast fermentations explore the endless flavours Ontario has to offer. Combining farm-grown and foraged fruits, discovering what the fermentation process yields, and aiming to bring out the best of each ingredient is what makes us excited to come to work every day. (Well, that, and all the incredible smells.)

The chamomile has imparted a really lovely sweet set of aromas. Lightly floral with notes of warm nougat and stewed citrus for good measure. Ostara Chamomile is soft flower power + spritzy plum acid.
