Building off of the success of Red Stag Black Cherry - featuring fine Kentucky Straight Bourbon infused with the flavor of apple cider through a unique process – Jim Beam launches Red Stag Hardcore Cider. The Red Stag by Jim Beam flavor expression line is perfect for those who haven’t considered bourbon before — or those who simply want to add a little flavor to their flask.

Crisp fruit and subtle spice flavors of apple cider.

Red Stag Hardcore Cider is a mixable, versatile flavor infused bourbon that’s delicious chilled, on the rocks or in a variety of creative cocktails.
