Raleigh, NC, November 19, 2016 Mims Distributing Company, a leading wholesale beverage distributor in North Carolina, announced the release of its newest seasonal cider by Blake’s Hard Cider Co., Archimedes, to the cidery’s award-winning line of craft hard ciders, which are being distributed in the Triangle. At 6.5 percent ABV, the Archimedes cider incorporates a combination of vanilla and elderberry essences. Archimedes follows the fall release of Black Phillip, another new cider in the Blake’s Hard Cider portfolio.
Located in Armada, Michigan, Blake’s Hard Cider Co. is the first craft cidery in Michigan, offering an adventurous exploration of all things cider. For 69 years, they have grown, pressed and fermented their own apples to brew uncompromised hard cider, using 42 apple varieties. The two new ciders are added to the 19 varieties of hard cider offered by Blake’s Hard Cider Co.
Blake’s Hard Cider Co. partnered with Mims Distributing in January 2016. The northern-based brewery shares the same values as Mims – a passion for craft beverages and dedication to quality.
“North Carolina craft cider lovers will really get a kick out of Archimedes this season,” said Andrew Blake at Blake’s Hard Cider Co. “The elderberry and vanilla tones make Archimedes the perfect pairing as the weather gets colder.”
“We’ve anticipated the release of the Archimedes cider for awhile now,” said Jeff Mims, CMO of Mims Distributing. “Blake’s Hard Cider Co. delivers deliciously fresh, and well-crafted ciders to our area every year, and they continue to impress us time and time again.”
