Celiac disease currently limits more than two million Americans from foods or beverages containing gluten, a protein found in wheat, rye and barley. However, people aren’t just going down the gluten-free path to monitor Celiac disease. In a growing trend, many are trying gluten-free diets with the hope of leading a healthier lifestyle.
A gluten-free diet requires a completely new approach to eating – and also a new approach to beverage selection. Consequently, the market has adjusted in response to people’s health concerns.
Look for Cherokee Distributing Company’s gluten-free malt products in stores near you. Whether you’re in the mood for the chilled, crisp taste of Hornsby’s Hard Apple Cider or the refreshing rush of Woodchuck Draft Cider, we’ve got you covered. Also popular since its U.S. debut in 2000 is Magner’s Cider, of which we are the only distributor in Tennessee. Magner’s has a great hint of Irish tradition.
Looking for other ways to enjoy our products? Fresh malt cider isn’t just for drinking. Impress guests at your next party by simmering ham or chicken with one of our gluten-free ciders to leave your friends coming back for seconds – or maybe even thirds. If you don’t have time to get creative with desserts, try this simple trick: Add a hint of malt cider to cake filling, and you’ll be sure to make mouths water.
If you’re out of cooking ideas, visit http://www.woodchuck.com for more recipes using Woodchuck Draft Cider. But, don’t limit your possibilities – any of our gluten-free ciders would be delicious additions to almost any dish.
Whether enjoying a cold beverage or cooking up something fresh in the kitchen, don’t let a gluten-free diet hold you back. Have your cider and drink it too!
