Just as apples are the fruit of the orchard, so too is cider in some ways the fruit of the sun: it is under the sun that the apples grow & create the sugar that becomes this wonderful alcohol, yielding the glorious complexities of this conversion.
So perhaps it is no surprise that cider is the perfect summer wine; being summer’s most beautiful libation & companion, coming from the sun of one summer & often ready to be first drunk under the sun of the following summer.
In early summer, the succulent or crisp delicacies of perry & sharp ciders, which are often youthful like spring & lower in alcohol, fit wonderfully to quench those first true thirsts of the returning sun. This is also the time that keeved cider from the previous season starts arriving, & its sweetness & low alcohol can make for easygoing joy. So we put together this selection, to showcase some releases from this brilliant time of year!
