The one bottle I discovered recently that gave me pause was Rekorderlig, a hard cider brewed in Sweden by a fourth-generation, family-owned brewery. While Sweden is more often known for fruity, sweet ciders, Rekorderlig's Spiced Apple Hard Cider is surprisingly mellow and rich. And most importantly: It can be served hot or cold. Its initial bite of sweetness is rounded by a dry undertone. The vanilla flavor stands out when served on ice, while the cinnamon grows bolder when warmed on the stove. I find it perfect with winter dinners, either as a chilled aperitif, or as a steamy digestif.
