We started drinking our 2015 cider when my parents came to visit at Christmas. It was good then, but now that it has had a chance to mature, it is truly excellent. It’s smooth, tasty, fizzy, and surprisingly strong.
Abe’s recipe and efforts have steadily improved over the past couple of years, and we are now to the stage when we can increase our production.
The guys that work for us around the place both have a lot of apple trees, and each time they taste the cider, they vow to bring us more and more apples. It seems like every cold glass that they and Abe have together, the size of this coming year’s batch increases – from 20 gallons, to 50, to 200, to… maybe I should stop them drinking together 🙂
