CiderGrown Batch: TASTING NOTES
Exotic, fruity, sweet-salt aromas become lush flavors, joined by ripe stone fruits and balanced by refreshing acid and tannin, unfurling toward a great umami finish. This is the least dry of the four, but barely semi-dry. Genius cider apples don't shine through a blanket of added sugar. 

What's in the can:

1.

This cider was made with traditional New England heirloom varieties, local seedling varieties, and Old-World varieties, including bittersweet cider varieties that originated in France and England.  Featured apples in the blend include Kingston Black, Ashton Bitter, Ellis Bitter, Roxbury Russet, Joyce, Lawfam, and Melba.

2.

This blend was fermented cold and partially aged in barrels and French oak puncheons.  A touch of ice cider was blended into the finished cider to brighten the blend and add a hint of sweetness.

3.

Finally, the cider was topped up, filtered, and transferred to a bright tank for carbonation and canning.
