Three Russets, part of our Apple Tree Series, is a hand-crafted dry cider made with 100% Golden Russet heirloom apples from Smith Brothers Farm in New York.
Three old Golden Russet trees stand guard together on the edge of our orchards - survivors from an era that ended when cosmetic, culinary apples became king of the orchards. But the Golden Russet makes up for its drab appearance by packing incredible flavor into one apple. One of the sweetest and well-balanced apples, Golden Russet makes a strong, bold, and delicious cider.
Three Russets does not disappoint. Sip this cider like a fine white wine and enjoy the incredible diversity of our orchards.
An effervescent cider blend aged on red grape skins, North Rosé is named after the town where our apples grow in Upstate New York. Bright and fruit-forward, this rosé dry cider is the perfect companion for patio happy hours, summer BBQs, or pool-side hangs. Enjoy it right out of the can.

Orchard Blend #11 is made with estate-grown bittersweet and Golden Russet apples. The English Chisel Jersey in the blend provides astringency while the American Golden Russet adds hints of citrus and grapefruit. The Golden Russet is an old heirloom apple that is high in sugar and acidity - it is a wonderful cider maker's apple. We have recently planted many rows of this varietal at Smith Brothers Farm in New York and we hope to feature it prominently in future ciders.
This semi-dry Cyser highlights the best aspects of both mead and cider, with strong honey and floral notes working in tandem with the complexity and aromatics of Northern Spy. Enjoy this product at cellar temperatures to really appreciate the intricacies of this special blend
Mr. Green is a well-balanced single varietal cider that is deliciously tart. Made from Rhode Island Greenings, this refreshing cider drinks more like a coastal Italian white wine with wonderful minerality and complexity.
Similar to its canned cousin, this bottle-conditioned cider is wonderfully effervescent and refreshing. The Greening is a well-known American heirloom apple that dates back to the 17th century - making it one of the oldest cultivated varieties in the world.
Inspired by traditional ciders made in Asturia, Spain, Espía is a 100% Northern Spy cider.
This cider was mellowed on oak, filtered, and then carbonated to create a clear and bold cider. While a slight departure from the traditional sidras from Northern Spain, this crafty cider can still be enjoyed from the long pour of a porrón.
Cherry Red, part of our Cider Fresca Series, is a hand-crafted semi-dry cider infused with Montmorency cherries grown on the coast of Lake Ontario. Made with a carefully selected blend of Great Lakes heritage and culinary apples, the subtle hint of cherry reminds us of the early days of summer along the lake.

King Blossom, part of our Apple Tree Series, is a hand-crafted dry cider made in the European tradition. This carefully selected blend of ripened bittersweet, heritage, and culinary apples produces a bold and complex cider. The King Blossom is the first white apple blossom that opens to the sun and pollinators. Buzzing with bees, this is the time of year that natures' magic takes over the orchards. It is only a matter of months before the King Blossom yields to the fruit that we press and craft into this refreshing cider.
The best of both worlds - this cider is a blend of old world and new world apples grown on the Smith Brother's Farm. We blended Porter's Perfection bittersharps for their crisp acid, Brown Snout bittersweets for their complex tannins, and Golden Delicious apples for their juicy sweetness. This is the very definition of a classic American cider.
Estate fruit produces this crisp and complex cider. Block 19 at Smith Brother's Farms is a recently-planted grove of bittersweet and bittersharp European varietals. Each year at harvest we pick what the block produces and the entire lot is blended to produce what we like to call a true cider maker's cider. We are excited to watch the trees grow and mature; we never know exactly what we are going to get from Block 19 but we know that it is going to be great.
