Farmhouse Hard Cider (J.K. Scrumpy's)

J.K. Scrumpy's, Farmhouse Hard Cider, Michigan

"When you drink my cider there are no rules. Some like to carefully decant it and leave the pectin and yeast on the bottom of the bottle. At the farm we prefer to “Drink It All” in a large pint glass - leaving the yeast/pectin much as one would with a German Heffe Weise."

Orchard Gate Gold is delicious cold or even at room temperature. It usually depends on how you like to drink regular cider. It is purely a personal preference.

First Fruit Cider (Foggy Ridge Cider)

Foggy Ridge Cider, First Fruit Cider, NV, Dugspur, VA

SPICY APPLE, PEAR & CITRUS. RICH, LIGHTLY SWEET & TART

First Fruit is 1.3% residual sugar and comparable to medium dry aromatic American white or, if sparkling, a Prosecco. It is more fruity and aromatic than their Serious Cider, yet because of the acid (from the crabapples and higher CO2 levels) tastes more “tart” rather than “sweet”. First Fruit is a balanced food-friendly cider that pairs well with many flavor combinations. Thomas Jefferson would have consumed this cider on its own.

Serving Suggestions: Washed rind and aged cheeses. Also, a great counterpart for very spicy dishes and sushi kicked up with wasabi.

Handmade by Foggy Ridge Cider (Foggy Ridge Cider)

Foggy Ridge Cider,"Handmade", NV, Dugspur, VA

100% Newtown Pippin Apples

CRISP, JUST OFF-DRY, OLD-SCHOOL CIDERY GOODNESS

This is a delicate, slightly peary cider that would remind us the most of our adventures with Basque sidra, if not for the slight hint of sweetness that gives away its Virginia provenance. Forget “billionaire’s vinegar”, Thomas Jefferson probably drank something like this most of the time.

Serving Suggestions: Roast turkey with gravy and stuffing, sweet potato hash...Thanksgiving food, basically.

Pippin Gold Dessert Cider 375ml (Foggy Ridge Cider)

Foggy Ridge Cider, Pippin Gold Dessert Cider, NV, Dugspur, VA

EAU DE VIE, HONEY, YEASTY & A COMPLEX HINT OF EARTH

Pippin Gold is an apple port, only made with hard cider and apple brandy. Diane first fermented 100% Newtown Pippin hard cider until it reached the desired sweetness of about 5% residual sugar, then added unoaked apple brandy from a Virginia brandy maker. The brandy was made from Grimes Golden, Ginger Gold and Golden Delicious apples, all Virginia grown. Pippin Gold was tank aged for 9 months before final blending and bottling and is 18% alcohol. Many chefs use Pippin Gold on their dessert menu, both as a beverage and an ingredient.

Serving Suggestions: As dessert on its own, or with Tarte Tatin, Bleu Cheese Cake, or a heavily spiced Carrot Cake.

Eric Bordelet, Poiré Authentique, Normandy, France NV

{biodynamic} 100% Pear

CRISP, FLORAL PEAR WITH DRY, MOUTHWATERING FLAVORS

What is this? Pear Cider is what it is! Peary to the Brits, and Poiré to the French is the little known, more sophisticated sister to fine apple cider. Trust us on this, it's a delicious, startling realization that there are still plenty of amazing, satisfying things in the world that we just aren't familiar with yet. Fairly dry, tart and highly aromatic. Bordelet is the king of the cider world, and this is the evidence.

Serving Suggestions: A green salad with fresh chevre, beets, roasted almonds, and mandarin oranges.

Poiré Domfront (Pacory, F. et C.)

F. et C. Pacory, Poiré Domfront, Domfront, Normandy, France

{organic} 100% Pear

PEAR, LIGHTLY TART, TOUCH OF SWEETNESS

Handpicked and juicy, like a pear fresh off the tree, Poiré Domfront is a recent appellation in the southern part of Normandy where pears are king. This pear cider is made principally with the variety Plant de Blanc, and its excellent acidity frame the pear and spice flavors. Poiré Domfront is made in the same style as low alcohol apple based ciders of Normandy, with 4-5% alcohol and slightly sparkling; it differs from its apple-based counterpart with a slightly brighter, golden color and (of course) its recognizably pear flavor…

Serving suggestion: A truly delicious, slightly off-dry drink that works excellently as a palate cleanser before a meal or just a delicious drink on its own.

Serious Cider (Foggy Ridge Cider)

Foggy Ridge Cider, Serious Cider, NV, Dugspur, VA

VERY DRY & WINEY. MOUTH-WATERING & AROMATIC

Serious Cider is .5% residual sugar, comparable to a classic white such as Pinot Grigio or Gruner Veltliner. The high tannin apples in this blend, the acidity and CO2 add to the perception of dryness. This blend includes their English apples, which are all inedible from their high tannin and acid. Drink Serious Cider as one would drink dry champagne—before dinner with fatty nibbles like cheese. The EU allows up to 15 g/l sugar in Brut champagne; at 10 g/l Serious Cider is a Brut cider.

Serving Suggestion: Great as a refreshing aperitif or with double and triple cream soft cheeses. The perfect cider for oysters and light seafood.

Sidra Natural (Basque) [375ml] (Isastegi Sagardo)

Isastegi Sagardo, Basque Sidra Natural [375ml], Basque, Spain NV

DRY & CRISP, DUSTY & MUSKY, TART & YEASTY

During a very long, very fun evening at Mateo Bar y Tapas, over plates of jamon y trucha, pan con tomate, and morcilla, our good friend Nate Mayorga remarked that his fifth glass of Isastegi tasted like "a clean attic filled with well-cared-for records." We thought that was the greatest sentence ever spoken, both for its poeticism and appropriateness. This is a serious Basque potion packed with tart, rich, briny apple flavor and not a drop of sweetness. Perfect for very long, very fun nights.

Serving suggestions: Anything, really, as long as it keeps on coming. But for Basque purposes let's say omelettes with Bacalao and oysters.

Sidre Brut Tendre (Eric Bordelet)

Eric Bordelet, Sidre Brut Tendre, North West, France NV

{biodynamic} Non-hybridized, Antique apple varieties

APPLEY & SHARP, JUST OFF-DRY TO BALANCE THE ACIDITY

Eric Bordelet is a sommelier by training, but with the guidance of his friend/iconic winemaker Didier Dagueneau, he took over the family estate in 1992 with the goal of making ciders comparable to fine wines. With ancient varietal apple trees, Eric picks from 20 different varieties for their sugar level, acid levels and bitterness, then blends the fruits for complex, otherworldly cider. Every apple is hand picked and then left to dehydrate in crates before pressing. This cider is just off-dry and shows fine bubbles in the glass. (About 4% ABV)

Serving Suggestions: As an aperitif before dinner, or with leaf lettuce based salads and brie tart.

Sweet Stayman Cider (Foggy Ridge Cider)

Foggy Ridge Cider, Sweet Stayman Cider, NV, Dugspur, VA

Stayman, Grimes Golden, Cox's Orange Pippin

HONEY, APPLE & MINERAL SPICINESS. SWEET & TART

Sweet Stayman is 1.85% residual sugar, comparable to a fine Spätlese Riesling or demi-sec Vouvray. For a sparkling wine it would be in the Semi-Secco category (between 33 and 50 g/l; Sweet Stayman is 37). Diane leave lots of acid in this cider (cider is almost all malic acid which tastes more “tart” than tartaric acid). It's powerfully rich, tart and mildly sweet, a true mouthful and mind-blowingly delicious!

Serving suggestions: Perfection with turkey, blue cheeses and spicy BBQ or Vietnamese & Thai.
