When enjoying a beverage as refreshing and aromatic as cider, choosing the right glass can make all the difference. Cider glasses are designed to highlight its aromas and refreshing taste. In this article, we will explain the interest of a cider glass and then explain the difference between a red wine glass and a white wine glass as well as their capacity.
Why do we use a cider glass and not another?
The cider glass is specially designed to allow the cider to release its aromas and allow it to taste better. In addition, equipped with a stem or a foot, this one allows the cider to remain naturally fresh.
What is the difference between a wine glass and a cider glass?
Although the glasses are very similar, they differ in shape and capacity. Red wine glasses (15 cL) are larger and have a wider opening to allow better oxygenation, unlike white wine glasses (15 cL) which are smaller with a narrower opening to preserve the aromas.
And the cider glasses (25cL) fall somewhere in between, offering an ideal balance to release aromas while maintaining a sparkling freshness.
The importance of the cider glass:
The cider glass is very important for developing its different aromas. However, the glass should not be filled to the brim in order to have a taste rich in aroma which differs from one producer to another. The glass therefore plays a crucial role in the development of these taste characteristics.
As a reminder, cider is an artisanal drink with various flavors, ranging from sweet to dry, through fruity and acidic notes. The glass allows bubbles to form and gradually rise to the top, providing a sparkling and refreshing experience. In addition, it allows the cider to breathe, thus revealing all its aromatic complexity.
In conclusion, choosing the right glass is important to fully appreciate this drink. So the next time you enjoy a delicious cider, don't forget your wine glass. You will be pleasantly surprised by the impact this can have on your tasting experience. Savor every sip and let yourself be carried away by the unique flavors of cider, enhanced by the judicious choice of your cider glass.
