Just bottled yesterday, our fist batch of Semi-dry is now ready. In the New England tradition, we've crafted this cider with apples of higher acidity and a touch molasses and honey. The cider's vibrant brightness, rhubarb and honey flavors, hold counterpoint to subtle darker flavors of molasses, brown sugar, and caramel. Alcohol 9.0% by volume.
Thanks to everyone who made it out the Wenatchee Downtown Holiday Wine Walk! We were excited to meet so many great people, and even more excited when we sold out of our Cliffbreaks Blend before the evening was through! We had a lot of positive feedback on the ciders (we featured our Dry Cider and Cliffbreaks Blend), the packaging, and the fact that someone local is making cider out of all the apples grown here. Special thanks to Jan Lutz from Columbia River Wine Country, Sarah Dempsey from Wenatchee Downtown Association, and Sam Mills from Mills Brothers for all their work in coordinating the event and making it all happen; most of all thanks for all you who came for the afternoon and made the event so much fun!
By the way, if you were wanting to get some of the Cliffbreaks Blend but were unable to, drop us a line or stop by Pak-it-Rite in downtown Wenatchee.
Our first official appearance is tonight at CFC's special event, featuring great local food, farms, chefs, music, wine and our cider! Thanks to all who are supporting this great organization, as we've enjoyed the bounty of great produce and specialty varieties they provide, all from local sources.
