Virginia Apples provide notes of tropical fruits that are complemented by the addition of grapefruit peel. Infusing the cider with hibiscus provides a subtle floral aroma and a beautiful pink hue.
Our story is the story of two friends, Tim Edmond and Dan Potter. The short version is that we are college buddies who shared a love of home-brewing beer, which chance and good fortune transformed into a passion for craft cider. Our path to cider-making was roundabout, but cider embodied the perfect confluence of our interests in agriculture, fermentation, experimentation and discovery. Our journeys and backgrounds have given us unique perspectives that influence our approach to cider-making, from the apples that we use to the way that we choose to do business. We continue to be excited by the sense of what is undiscovered – there are still so many apple varieties, yeast strains, and styles of ciders to explore. We’ve had a lot of help along the way with strong support from family, friends, and the Charlottesville community, for which we are deeply appreciative.
