Heirloom is blended from four American heirloom apples and a small lot of Bittersweets. Rhode Island Greening, the second oldest apple grown in the US dating from 1650, lends notes of subtle grapefruit. Ben Davis (~1811) contributes ripe pear and spice, Baldwin (~1740) brings lovely soft acidity and a hint of stone fruit and the Bittersweets contribute delicate tannins. Heirloom was aged on medium toast French Oak contributing structure and a hint of vanilla to this exceptional cider.
