1. Korzon Orchard (6.0% ABV)
AKA Jon Green, the apples in this 50-50 blend are sweet and aromatic with a hint of bitterness. The resulting cider flavors are crisp, clean, dry, then lightly carbonated to make it bright and bubbly. Dry enough to please our British patrons.
2. Power Island (5.2% ABV)
Jonathan, Rhode Island Greening
Cider maker, Chris Guest harvested fresh mint from a lakeside slope. The infusion results in a delicious bright cider that is sure to please the palette.
3. Barrel Rider (6.5% ABV)
Jonathan and Rhode Island Greening infused with Mint leaves
Barrel aged Spanish style cider, infused with Jalapeño and Habenero peppers, for a savory combination of refreshing sour and a hint of heat. Goes great with sandwiches and salads.
4. Sidra-LaPeño (5.8% ABV)
Variety of Local Leelanau Peninsula Farm Apples
An off-dry cider made with the classic cider apple, Northern Spy, and a hint of fresh ginger to counterbalance the sweetness of the apple. Ginger’s natural tingliness brightens the flavor with lemon notes. This cider won Best in Class in the 2018 GLINTCAP judging!!
5. I Spy Ginger (5.5% ABV)
Northern Spy, Ida Red infused with Ginger Root
This semi-dry cider is a delightful hopped cider. We pressed and blended locally grown apples, aged the juice in a barrel and infused it with Mosaic hops known for their fruity appeal. The character is light and tangy. A 2018 GLINTCAP bronze medal winner!
