SIN EATER CIDERS
Sin Eater Ciders has become a fun additional pursuit for us. In our fourth year of production, we still source our apples 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, and from wild and abandoned apple trees. 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 5 ciders.
We continue to produce our Traditional Cider, which has a blend of heirloom and wild apples, all picked from Ornbaun Road in Anderson Valley.
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 Sierra Beauty apples. Its a beer lover's cider.
We have been expanding our copressings this year, and have 3 delicious hybrids, all made with apples, co-pressed with grape pomace left over from the morning pressing of grapes (to make wine...). A unique hybrid of both components, they are incredibly refreshing and unique. In all three, we used a blend of heirloom apples from Filigreen Farm. Our copressed offerings are Sauvignon Blanc/Apple cider blend, Gewurtztraiminer/Apple Cider blend and Pinot Noir/Apple Cider blend. Try them all!
