Honest (Pear Brandy)
Brown Dog Whiskey (80 and 104 proof)
Appely Doux and Pear represent 2/3 of our best sellers. We should be good on Appely Doux through the end of the season – which is 12/15/13 this year.
We will be returning to scheduled weekend hours with midweek by-appointment next week.
Our annual Wassail is on the calendar for 1/5/14 – weather permitting.
And for those keeping track, yes, we have sold out of Perry, Porissimo Traditionale and Summers End since the last update.
We are now out of bottled draft cider in the Tasting Room for 2013. We do have sixth barrels of Barn Swallow.
We’ve started several of next year’s batches, so new ciders are on their way!
The rest of our product availability remains like last week’s update.
We are getting low on our sparkling Perry. Please call ahead and reserve some of you know you’d like it for the holidays.
We have plenty of:
Summers End (for now)
Brown Dog Whiskey.
Thanks for all your patronage this year!
We are low on Barn Swallow and Sparrow Spiced Cider in bottles for the remainder of the fall season. Call ahead if you would like to reserve some.
We can offer sixth barrels of Barn Swallow for your kegerator or fall parties, though.
In the wake of a fantastic weekend, we are out of the experimental Bumbleberry port-style and also the Bunting Berry draft style.
This is an early out-date for the Bunting. Partly poor planning last year, partly great response this year. It will be back next spring.
We are now under 10 cases left of this year’s Bunting Berry Draft Cider. Come in soon, or call ahead to reserve some.
We have taken up our autumn schedule : 12-5 every day but Tuesday. Open early (10am) on Saturday.
Tuesday we rest from the craziness, so appointments -aren’t- available.
Our orchard partner, Brightonwoods, is open 9-6 daily, with a zillion kinds of apples and fresh pressed sweet cider.
Two releases in one weekend!
Thanks to Kitty and Milissa, this year’s ‘pomage’ of our traditional English-ish draft cider is available. It’s the partner to our English-ish dry, tannic Orchard Oriole Perry, which is also ready for sale now.
The Kinglet is not as short supply as the Oriole – but I don’t expect it to last the Summer. So stop in to the ÆppelTreow Tasting Room some weekend soon.
This year’s draft perry, from estate-grown traditional English perry cultivars, is bottled, and will be released this weekend, May 25-26th.
Due to the poor crop following the Horrid Torrid March of Twenty Twelve, this batch of Orchard Oriole Perry is very limited – just 17 cases. You’ll have to come to the Tasting Room to get some – but we will reserve some for you by phone or email.
I will admit that I had some during bottling last night – and it’s pretty tasty.
The 2011 pomage of Pommeaux is gone from the Tasting Room.
We are on track to release the 2012 Orchard Oriole Perry and Kinglet Bitter Draft Cider next weekend. These will be Tasting Room exclusives this year.
We also have all the glass on hand to bottle up more dessert wines. You should come out and see how stuffed the winery is right now.
