FARNUM HILL CIDERS: with Cidermaker Corrie Wolosin

  • Kingston Black : Kingston Black technically is a “bittersharp” apple variety, which in the English-speaking cider world means that its high tannin and acid levels make it a  suitable apple cider. However, its sugar level regularly yields 8.5% alcohol. We release a hundred or so cases of ‘Special Reserve,’ made only from this apple, in years when our KB is showing all its charms. (8.5%)
  • Dooryard Cider: Dooryard Cider is an old & new concept, like so many things at Poverty Lane Orchards. Many cider orchards abroad do much of their trade in the yard, to customers who come in with their empty vessels and leave with whatever the cidermaker is dispensing that day. Tannic and delicious (7.5%)
