SIN EATER CIDERS
Sin Eater Ciders has become a fun additional pursuit for us. In our third year of production, we still source our apples and pears from Filigreen Farm, a favorite grower in the Valley, where Chris and Stephanie tend heirloom and heritage varieties on their Demeter-certified biodynamic farm. We have also been gifted apples and quince from private, non-certified organic orchards. Thank you, folks!
Our ciders are unfiltered, small batch, and are made from a blend of varietals. All ciders are made with spontaneous yeast fermentation and are unfined. There are no preservatives added to our ciders.
This year, we made 3 ciders and a Perry.
We continue to produce our Traditional Cider, which has a blend of 5 heirloom apples; Ribston Pippin, Spitzenburg, Gravenstein, Smokehouse and Wickson.
Our Dry Hop cider is co-fermented with a very unique hops, Gargoyle, which hails from Sonoma County. This hops imparts unique Mango and Citrus notes to the blend of Gravenstein and Maiden's Blush apples. Its a beer lover's cider.
We went wild and crazy this year, and decided to co-press some Sierra Beauty apples with Albarino Grape pomace we had left over from the juice we had pressed earlier that morning. A unique hybrid of both components, its incredibly refreshing and unique. We call it Sierra Beauty/Albarino.
Made with late season pears-Winter Nelis, Louise Bonne, d’Avranches, Hosui Asian Pears, grown by Filigreen Farm, this Perry is earthy, with tropical fruit aromas, a broad mid palette, and a classic sweet pear character. Textural, vivid and expressive, this Perry is tangy and complex, with layers of fresh Pear and Summer orchard.
