Apples & Pears: The joy of Cider on Friday April 4th

With the arrival of longer days and the warmer weather of Spring, a crisp refreshing cider is the perfect way to see in the changing of the seasons.  The Cider category has seen a resurgence of popularity in recent years with artisan producers appearing all over the country and around the world, creating Ciders of great quality and class.

Typically made from either fermented apples or pears, Cider ranges from still to delicately sparkling and bone dry to tantalizingly sweet.  There are many techniques used to create truly unique and exciting products, including Oak barrel aging, Method Champenoise and fermentation using wild yeasts for extra earthy complexity.

This week we will be sampling a wide selection of the finest quality ciders from the U.S. France, Spain and England, highlighting the diversity of this classic, traditional beverage.
