Cider Making

Our cider makers have been making cider for decades. After years of experimenting with apple varieties from Europe and the United States and exploring different cider making techniques, we came up with our flagship, Crisp Apple and knew we had something we were ready to share. Our cider makers continue to innovate with ingredients and cider making techniques, creating new ciders for you to enjoy.


 

Our Apples

Culinary Apples

Culinary Apples

Italian culinary apples are grown in the Alto Adige region at the base of the Alps. These apples have a juicy, luscious, ripe apple character, the sweetness of which is balanced by a bright acidity. Italian culinary apples feature many varieties, including Braeburn, Fuji, Granny Smith, Pink Lady and Gala. Certain regions in the United States, such as the Pacific Northwest and the Northeast, share characteristics with the Alto Adige in their rich soil and ample sunshine, and produce a similar mix of culinary apples varieties.
Bittersweet Apples

Bittersweet Apples

French bittersweet apples from Normandy and Brittany are grown and selected specifically for making cider. These apples provide complexity and wine-like characteristics to a cider. They provide acidity, tannins that impact mouth feel, astringency, and fruity cider notes. Bittersweet apples feature several French varieties, including Amere de Berthecourt, Beden, Medaille d’or, Michelin, and Binet Rouge. Unlike other apple varieties, these apples are small and unattractive to the point of looking angry, hence the name Angry Orchard.
