  • Texas Keeper No. 1 is our flagship cider. It’s crafted from 3-12 apple varieties fermented individually and blended to build a well-balanced, dry cider with notes of ripe pear and melon, subtle rosewater and honeysuckle, with a crisp green apple finish. We ferment the apple varieties in small lots (~300 gallons) on heavy lees to increase fermentation nutrition and add complexity. We try our hardest to keep the ferments cool during fermentation with temperatures peaking at 56F. This cool, long fermentation helps preserve delicate fruit esters. No oak is generally used – we wanted to present the delicacy of the fruit. The ferments for No.1 are racked off heavy lees following fermentation and aged for at least six months on light lees with occasional batonnage. We allow the lots to go through spontaneous malolactic fermentation, which helps soften and broaden the palate of the final blend. The cider is unfiltered in order to keep as much of the complexity intact. We feel a light carbonation best suits Texas Keeper Cider.
  • The 2019 crop of GoldRush was true to form, with a crisp, citrus quality during pressing.  We selected a combination of yeast strains to help round and soften the palate. Aged on lees to increase texture and to bring out toasted notes, this combination brought a hint of the creaminess of lemon meringue pie to the tart grapefruit and Meyer lemon.  It’s our citrus sketch, perfect for pairing with a variety of cheeses and desserts. 750ml Bottle Residual Sugar: 14 g/L ABV: 7.5%
  • This is Texas Keeper's take on a fruited cider - a blend of four apple varieties aged 6 months on lees and then double fermented with sour cherries. We finished the cider dry to bring out the complexity of the cherries and avoid the pitfalls of too-sweet cherry ciders. The result is a cider with honeyed cherry on the nose, ripe apricot and nectarine on the palate, and a gentle, tart finish. Apples: 41% Rome Beauty, 30% Piñata, 29% RI Greening; Cherries: 50% Montmorency, 50% Balaton; Residual Sugar: 4.8g/L Contains Sulfited
  • Our first of hopefully many pommeaus. Pommeaus are fortified ciders, comparable to port or other fortified wines, and traditionally made in Northern France. We began Dovetail 5 years ago with a small lot of Rome Beauty apples. We added two other American Heirloom varieties in 2017, stopping fermentation halfway with fruit brandy, and then aging in 100% new American oak casks. Dovetail is drier than its European cousins, but with some residual sugar from the apples. It has notes of honeyed apricot, peach, toffee and soft tannins from the long oak aging. Best enjoyed lightly chilled as an aperitif, or as a beautiful end to a good meal. We recommend sipping it slowly, to note how the characteristics change over time. 750ml 19.2% ABV
  • Apples and grapes, fermented together. The Grafter Series is all about crafting unique ciders made from heirloom apples and vintage wine grapes. For this year’s Rosé we combined Rome Beauty apples (first planted 1817) with Texas-grown Dolcetto and Cinsault grapes. The result is a beautifully rounded cider with notes of ripe raspberry, peaches and cream, and a crisp stone-fruit finish. 88% Rome Beauty apples; 8% Cinsault grapes; 4% Dolcetto Residual Sugar: 4 g/L; Cases Produced 600; Alc/Vol; 8.8%
  • Grafter Blanc: Apples and grapes fermented together The Grafter Series is about crafting unique ciders made from heirloom apples and vintage wine grapes. Grafter Blanc is the second cider in the series. Our Spring release is a combination of 25% Muscat Blanc grapes grown in the High Plains, 39% Rome Beauty, 25% Empire and 11% Northern Spy apples. Notes of candied pear, nectarine and orange blossom, finishing with a soft acidity and lightly effervescent. Residual Sugar: 5.5 g/L ABV 8.5%

  • TX Cuvée is made from three beautiful heirloom apple varieties grown in a small orchard in the High Plains of Texas. Winesap’s origin is lost to history but is a prized cider variety known for its vinous character. Arkansas Black (~1850) hails from its namesake state; deep crimson to jet black, the apple is known for its cherry characteristic. Cortland, first grown 125 years, ago brings lovely floral notes.  We pressed these small lots in the winter of 2021 and fall of 2021. Slow rolling pressing and fermentation yielded a soft cider with notes of tropical fruit and gentle acidity. Half the cider went through malolactic fermentation. Aged in neutral tanks. The resulting cider is delicate and soft with notes of agarita blossom, close and honey on the nose with lychee and caramelized pear on the palate.  Apples Used: Winesap, Arkansas Black, Cortland Residual Sugar: 3.5g/L ABV: 8.4%

    This cider is a blend left unfiltered and unfined and aged for 9 months, then dry-hopped with Sabro and Cashmere.
