The mission of our 'Rare Apple Series' is to highlight the virtues of these extraordinary heirloom apples and their exquisite transformation into distinctive cider.

Rare Apple Series Mission

The mission of our 'Rare Apple Series' is to highlight the virtues of extraordinary heirloom apples varieties and their exquisite transformation into distinctive cider. In 2017, we started making small batch ciders with some of our favorite rare apples, such as the British Kingston Black apple, and other American Heirloom varieties that were among some of the first apples cultivated in the United States. These apples are unfortunately incredibly rare in the United States and many of the American Heirloom apple varieties were pretty much wiped out after Prohibition. They have only recently started to make a small comeback through the efforts of apple evangelists. We aim to increase awareness of the diversity of apple cultivars and show consumers the depth and complexity yielded from using the right apples to make cider.
