|Our cider is bottled in a traditional 750 ml champagne bottle, using only traditional French, English and early American cider apples which have the high tannin levels that make the best ciders, with a complex taste that is a blend of sharp, sweet, and bitter.We never use additives, like sweetened apple juice and we never pasteurize. Our fruit is pressed at the peak of ripeness, and fermented for nearly a year, using a traditional French style of in-bottle fermentation.
The in-bottle fermentation achieves a natural carbonation, with a bubble similar to champagne, and an alcohol content of about 6.5%.
Like wine, cider is fermented from fruit and can capture the complex flavors of fruit. But unlike wine, the alcohol level is around 6 or 7 percent; and a little natural sparkle complements the apple flavor.

|American cider is coming into its own, as more and more ugly, bitter little apples are planted solely for the purpose of making cider.We hope you will enjoy our beautiful sparkling cider, made from our own ugly, bitter little apples, as a complement to a great meal, as an appetizer with cheese or pate, or on its own, chilled.
