Aroma & Flavor

This floral, earthy nectar sips like a fine, fermented spring tonic. Distinct floral notes with wandering hints of greenery. Light and crisp, herbal body with notes of artichoke and earth, and finishing with honeyed out-breath and a cream soda sprig of chamomile.

Apple Varieties

Fermented on the farm with a select blend of Certified Organic Washington apples, organic Midori Farm burdock root, organic dandelion root, organic Finnriver lemon balm, organic chamomile blossom and Sequim Bee Farm blackberry honey. 

Cidermaker Notes

Honey Meadow speaks directly to the roots, shoots, and blooms of Spring on the Olympic Peninsula. Locally harvested burdock and dandelion roots are dried and roasted in the farm’s woodfired oven and then boiled into a house-made syrup. The roots balance the acidity with their earthy depth and nutty notes and then we add honey to add the floral and herbs to honor the season. Lightly carbonated. Made without gluten ingredients. 

Serving Suggestions

Serve chilled in a white wine glass or as you wish. Pair this sweeter cider with rich brunch fare and creamy cheeses, fungal quiches or a Monte Christo. Also happens to fill a Spring pint quite nicely—to enjoy on the farm while watching the dandelions grow... Use the Honey Meadow cider in a salad vinaigrette or in a cocktail with vodka and mint ice cubes.
