A few of our current ciders:
Pura Vida 2020: The first bottled cider of the vintage… Apples from Singing Dog Orchard in Halifax, where 60 year-old unsprayed Cortland trees make for something deep and special; and from a block of Geneva Tremlett’s Bitter at Pine Hill Orchard in Colrain, tree whips given to David Shearer by Terry Maloney back at the beginning of the millennium. The Tremlett’s give the cider a flashy brightness and racy acidity. Could be the cider of the vintage?
Mullins Yellow 2019: Golden Delicious from Pine Hill with a sprinkling of antique varieties like Arkansas Black and Baldwin from our friend Homer Dunn at Alyson’s Orchard in Walpole, NH. Full-bodied, a little a spicy and funky on the palette, with a singing golden sweetness on the finish.
Redfield 2020: One of our signature ciders, West County was the first to cultivate the Redfield apple for Hard Cider production. Red fleshed tart and tannic Redfield juice is reminiscent of cranberry, deep red and snappy on the palate. Fermented the Redfield has a charm of juicy lightness and freshness with a cider bite. And that pale pink sui generis glow that could only be Redfield! (Only available at our Peckville store.)
