Milissa and I had a great trip to Grand Rapids, Michigan last weekend. Setting up for the Cider Sensory Seminar that I teach, along with Gary Awdey and Dick Dunn, was intense, but I think it was worry well spent. The seminar just keeps getting better.
Oh, and the competition results? ÆppelTreow took three medals for three entries. 100% medal rate!!
(Okay, they were all bronzes – but no traditional perry, like Orchard Oriole, got better than a bronze this year. And no brandies took a gold. Tough judges this year. We must have taught them too well
Heard this story this morning. Our Brown Dog Whiskey is distilled from WI grown Sweet Sorghum, and aged with oak, apple, cherry and chestnut wood. Lots of plants.
We obviously need to get Amy some.
A little recognition for our Barn Swallow Draft Cider from the Chicago Reader.
We had a great appearance on Wisconsin Foodie, along with our orchard partner, Bill Stone of Brightonwoods. We also had a lot of fun playing host to Bittercube.
(No, we haven’t named the cocktail we made yet.)
