SOLD OUT: Appely Amer


Our small batch sparkling, rose-colored, intensely flavored, boundary pushing cider has sold out.

The red-fleshed apple trees are on their off year, so the soonest it can return is about 2018 – but it worked so well that I -will- be making it again.

Appely Brut was the first product we made, back in 2001.  It’s made with the traditional champagne method – a refermentation in the bottle to make the sparkle, then turning the bottles upside down and ‘riddling’ the yeast into the neck, ending with ‘disgorging’ the yeast out of the bottle.
