The wait is over. Our first rose cider is here!

It was a true labor of love from our assistant cidermaker David, who pressed the 80 gallons manually through his own press on a warm Saturday in September last year.

This cider is a blend of Geneva Crab, Redfield, Dolgo Crab, and an unnamed red-fleshed pollinator crab from another local orchard. Yes, this cider is 100% apple!

There are only TWO DOZEN CASES AVAILABLE. You don't want to miss this.

What are our customers saying about?

"A medium body cider with a clean and crisp palate; it opens with citrus, lemon peel and bright acidity, has notes of pomegranate and berry fruits before it finishes with light tannins. Perfect for a summer day or anytime you need a bit of orchard sunshine."
