Happy New Year

Happy New Year from all of us at Urban Tree!


As we say hello to 2017, we’re already thinking ahead to new opportunities and horizons but before the month is over, we’ll have a brand new cider!

Urban Tree Cidery’s newest seasonal creation is a Blood Orange, Bourbon, and Vanilla blend that was inspired by an advanced tasting of ASW Distillery’s newly released Fiddler Bourbon. As soon as we tried it, we knew immediately that the orange, salted caramel, and nutmeg notes in Fiddler would pair perfectly with the wintry blood orange fruit and Madagascar vanilla bean.

After visiting the distillery, the Urban Tree team worked with the good folks at ASW to use their Fiddler barrels so we could begin the aging process and bring our cider closer to toasty perfection.

When Cider Gets Wild

For this week’s Fresh Press, we wanted to give you a glimpse of our new seasonal cider and what goes into making a new flavor from picking the juice to sampling new concoctions and finally to the finished product.

First, we had an unexpected (and amazing) thing happen, one of our containers filled with Stayman Winesap juice started to ferment due to the native yeast inside. This is especially exciting because this gives the cider a unique flavor that can only be found at our orchard.

From there we monitored the juice until all of the yeast ate the sugars and turned the juice into a fully fermented cider.

Then the real fun part happens, tasting. We mix flavors and combine our favorites to create what we hope is something delicious. In this case, the addition of wildflower honey to sweeten the cider was all that we needed to make an enjoyable drink. Choosing not to blend the cider with other apples was another important factor that we felt complemented the end product.

After mixing together the honey and cider, we filtered and carbonated it where it’s currently waiting to be put into kegs and enjoyed!

We’re having a New Flavor Release on May 20th where you can try it for the first time! So check it out and come on over for food, music, and our new cider!
