Temp Note: Chill me! Enjoy it straight from the fridge or after it has warmed up slightly.
This is a fun one. Man, have we have been crushing this cider! It is dry with a touch fruit and a touch of earth. The producer uses a Champagne yeast in the production of this cider which is probably why we like it so much! This can be enjoyed as an aperitif or as a lower alcohol alternative to wine.
ABOUT THE PRODUCER
“Urban Orchard Cider Co. began in what was the soon to be, up-and-coming area of West Asheville that is now better known as, “East-West Asheville”. It was started by a local family of six that decided to change the game of craft cider in America by utilizing delicious local apples from Hendersonville, NC and creative farm to table ingredients. The idea that people want to know where their food and beverages are originating, are ideas that are here to stay and what now sets the true standard in Asheville. In a time where product labels can be difficult to navigate and interrupt, you can be sure that Urban Orchard Ciders are of the purest form. We are dedicated to producing the highest quality craft ciders that we feel good about drinking ourselves. Forget the days of overly sweet ciders, full of artificial sweeteners, aromas, colors, and flavors. We let fresh-pressed apple juice do the talking for us. Aging/maturation and a variety of yeast strains are competitive advantages for us and we have found that the extra work delivers us a superior product.” https://www.urbanorchardcider.com/about-us/
Following nearly five years of creativity, we have expanded our production to allow for a greater customer reach. In October of 2019, Urban Orchard Cider moved its production and opened a new taproom on the South Slope of Downtown Asheville, and during fall production, we are able to generate approximately 10,000 gallons of fermented base cider every 4-6 weeks. All of our ciders are matured from a minimum of four months to over one year, and we believe this maturation phase provides time for the complete infusion and melding of flavors so that our customers can enjoy the best craft cider possible.
