We blend them to balance the sharp, sweet and dry bitter tastes into complex and delicious ciders.
We are very proud of our Dry Summer Blend, and from the comments of our customers who have tried it. This lightly carbonated semi-dry cider has a nice balance of tannin and acid from cider type apples, blending nicely with the low residual sugars making it a refreshingly semi-dry cider with no lingering sweet aftertaste. The blend of over a dozen types of our estate grown apples gives it body and mouth feel as attested by our customers. We hope you will agree.

This cider blend is low in carbonation, residual sugar and is on the dryer side so you can focus on the different types of English bittersweets and crabapple varieties we grow. The clean flavor is characteristic of the early days of cider making.
This cider has won Best of Class and Gold Medal awards in the Heritage category for both 2018 and 2019 by GLINTCAP. No wonder this major achiever and style is a favorite of our customers. The cider’s wonderful fresh apple aroma is smooth, refreshing and pares well with your favorite meal. Just a hint of sweetness, but bold in flavor with a surprising note of honey and apple blossom aroma making this blend from our estate grown apples a favorite of many. The sweetness counters the dryness and the carbonation adds to mouth feel.
