Grapefruit season is now year-round as Austin Eastciders adds Ruby Red Grapefruit to their wildly popular line of pre-Prohibition style Texas ciders.

The new offering, now available in Austin Eastciders markets, is a refreshing and slightly tart cider made with Ruby Red Grapefruits from the Texas Rio Grande Valley.

“The Ruby Red grapefruit’s unique bitter-yet-sweet taste profile beautifully complements our crisp, dry, Old World-style cider. And the red grapefruit is the official state fruit of Texas. It’s meant to be!”
– Brittany Mathieu, R&D Manager, Austin Eastciders
