Cidermaker Notes

Our seasonal ciders share the earthly essence of life in the elds and gardens of the Olympic Peninsula. We crafted this cider around the time of the Winter Solstice, inspired by the local saffron grown at Phocas Farms in Port Angeles. Saffron is considered one of the world’s most rare and costly spices and was rst cultivated in Greece. The bright cider features fermented organic apples, delicately steeped toasted fennel and organic anise pods. Lightly carbonated. Made without gluten ingredients.

Serving Suggestions

Serve chilled in a white wine glass or as you wish. Pair this cider with minty rice, sushi, summer salads with edible owers or lightly braised vegetables, or with a range of Mediterranean or Indian foods, make a Solstice Saffron granita!
