Finnriver's winter seasonal cider is a Cranberry Rosehip blend featuring a lively fermented apple base with tart, organic cranberries and wildcrafted rosehips from the Olympic Peninsula. Celebrate the season with the succulent herbal notes and crimson color of this semi-sweet craft cider.
"Elijah K. Swan" Ciders are named after the good folks who sold us the farm (Lige & Kay Christian) and who first planted apple trees here, as well as for the trumpeter swans that overwinter in the valley. This cider is a tribute to them and to those big white birds who remind us that earth is still wild.
Jameson Fink's Tasting Notes:
Beautiful color like a French rosé from Southern France, specifically the heartier rosés from Tavel. Just with bubbles and a touch of sweetness. I think it would pair perfectly with grilled salmon finished with a touch of Sriracha.
