Food Pairings – Cheese

This week we delve into how well cider pairs with food. Just like wine, cider has many flavor palettes that can complement food like cheeses or meats. We’ll go through three of our ciders today and discover how they pair with cheese.

Our Classic Cider is bright and clear with a semi-sweet bouquet. I’m pairing it with a Caramel Washed Gouda cheese that, when combined with the cider, brings out a flavor of salty sweetness in the cheese. Fresh basil also matches the sweetness with hints of anise or a savory pepper flavor.

Next, our Original Cider is dry and has notes of tannins and has a subtle tartness. Triple Crème Brie cheese complements the cider by balancing the crisp dryness with the rich creaminess of the brie. Spreading the cheese on a cracker accompanied by a few pear slices adds some juiciness in between sips.

The last cider we’ve paired is our Rum Barrel Aged which we’ve matched with Cashel Blue cheese. The tang taste and buttery texture of the cheese balances the robust rum notes in the cider all while mixing with apple and oak flavors to create a complex bite every time.

All this is an example of what you could expect by booking an event in our Barrel Room for smaller parties. There, you can sip cider while being given a private tour by one of our cidermakers, and if you choose, nibble on cheese plates or hand-picked charcuterie.

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!
