Cider and Perry? We use the pre-Prohibition meaning of ‘cider’, so we’re talking about fermented or ‘hard’ cider. Perry is the pear analogue to cider. We use lots of different kinds of apples and pears in our products. Some modern. Some heirloom – no longer grown for stores. We make a range of styles: sparkling, draft, still/table, and fortified/dessert. Within a style, we lean to the dry end – but also have some medium-sweet offerings.
We are also a distillery. We use Wisconsin grown crops and wood to make whiskey and brandies. Distilled spirits may be powerful, but they are also flexible. They are nice neat (straight up), and even more fun in cocktails. We encourage people to mix our products up and add their own creative touch.
