November 6, 2018 - Fennville, MI - It’s Cider Season, so there’s no better time to bring out two brand-new packages of our proper farmhouse cider.

Michigan Cherry, our cider with cherries, launched last summer as a festival favorite and quickly became a fast seller in Fennville, throughout all of Michigan, and into Chicago. This cider is made from all kind of Michigan apples pressed and fermented in our cider houses, aged in French oak barrels, then blended with fresh cherries that are also from Michigan. Michigan Cherry has a brilliant ruby hue, unmistakeable tart cherry aroma and flavor, and finishes clean and crisp. 5% ABV. This November, we are releasing Michigan Cherry in 12oz. six-pack can in printed boxes for convenient carrying and enjoyment. Join us for our official release parties:

This cider is a blend of last harvest’s Michigan apples pressed and fermented in our cider houses and aged in bourbon barrels, and this year’s fresh-pressed apples. The final cider has overripe apple aroma with vanilla notes and a warm appley finish. 6.8% ABV.

“We like to release The Mitten when we transition from the apple harvest to the holiday season,” says Seth Boeve, Virtue Cider head cidermaker. “This year we’ve decided to take our love of bourbon barrel-aged cider a step further and release The Mitten with two special variants, Maple Mitten and Cherry Mitten, at the same time.”

We are also introducing two variants: Cherry Mitten and Maple Mitten, both in 500ml bottles.

The Mitten, Cherry Mitten, and Maple Mitten will be available in very limited quantities this year, but you can enjoy them first at the following launch events:
