Thirsty Fox Launches India’s First And Only Hopped Cider: Kipp
Just in time to welcome the Indian monsoon, Trillium Beverages’ Thirsty Fox has announced the launch of Kipp, India’s first hopped cider.
Thirsty Fox Kipp is a juicy, unfiltered cider with a bitter-sweet complexity. The freshest batch of hand-picked apples is slowly fermented with a proprietary blend of hops and blended with cold-pressed apple juice. The result is a cloudy, fruit-forward cider with heady tropical aromas and a lingering finish. Kipp has an alcohol content of 5.5% ABV and is gluten-free and vegan.
Even before its market launch, Kipp has made waves internationally, winning a Silver medal and the India Cider of the year award at The New York International Cider Competition 2021.
“With the launch of Kipp, we want to create an experience that we believe is a first of its kind for consumers in India. A hopped cider will appeal to a broad audience while being true to the Thirsty Fox vision of craft ciders that consumers have come to know and love. While our initial plan was to launch Kipp alongside Izzy and Reed in November 2019, we had to embark on a two year-long journey to overcome the plethora of technical challenges that a cider such as Kipp poses. We are excited to be introducing a small batch of only 900 bottles of Kipp and cannot wait to hear what our most loyal fans think about this cider.” – Siddharth Sheth, Founder & CEO, Trillium Beverages Pvt. Ltd.
Limited stocks of Kipp will be available at select retail outlets starting 12th July 2021.
Price- Rs. 350 for 330 ml glass stubby bottles
