O’Klee’s Raspberry Dazzle

O’Klee Raspberry cider has a distinctive raspberry taste that is sweet on the front end and subtlety tart on the back end. It is sweeter than many of the Wyile ciders and is often used as a dessert wine, but it is not syrupy sweet like some dessert wines.

This cider goes well as an after-dinner drink poured over ice, or served with a light lunch.  At 6.9% ABV, this cider is not carbonated.

O’Klee

Wyile O’Klee is the patriarch of the Smoky Mountain Clan of the Appalachian Wyiles and as such has held the title of “Premier Cider Maker” in all of the Smoky Mountains from Georgia to Virginia. O’Klee is the creator of many of the Wyile Cider recipes, of which his raspberry cider is considered one of his best brews. While he is quite modest about this prestigious position he takes the responsibility very seriously. Every cider recipe that is conceived by any other Wyile must first be taste tested by O’Klee and his wife Tulip before the cider can be produced for human consumption.

O’Klee is also known for his cranberry cider, mango cider and ginger cider. O’Klee also known for his recipe for his famous dry sparkling cider.
