Bonkers is a ridiculous beverage. A blend of the lees of 2 different, heavily fruited tanks.
Bonkers started with the end of our tank of cherry cider: the last drops of liquid on the most amount of fruit possible = the most concentrated flavour.
We took that cider and aged it on a puréed mess of red and blue plum skins for an additional 3 weeks.
What's it like?: Bonkers is texture galore. Like cherry cola garnished with plum stones. You'll get a ton of Montmorency cherry character here, with that botanical-like bitterness so unique to dark plums.
Bonkers is just lightly carbonated: it is not fully sparkling. The technical term is Perlant—just enough bubbles to lift aromas, without making it truly sparkling.
We love lees (and cherries). You will too.
