This month we're highlighting each of our cidermakers, who work tirelessly to press, ferment, barrel-age, and blend the ciders you know and love. Meet James Bothwell.
At Virtue Cider, we source apples from our neighbor orchards that reside on what we call the "Cider Coast." Southwest Michigan is renowned for its fruit-bearing lands, much of which is home to generations-old apple orchards. In our Harvest Time on the Cider Coast video series, we check in with some of our farm partners to see how their apple crops are shaping up. Check out our first episode below featuring Heritage Orchards in Benton Harbor, Michigan.
Cherry Mitten bourbon barrel-aged cider with cherries is one of our fan favorites, and we are excited to reveal a very special limited batch this summer! The Mitten bourbon barrel-aged cider is our most award-winning cider, and Cherry Mitten (made with local Michigan tart cherries) is always a hit. This Saturday, we'll release a batch of Cherry Mitten that was aged in Goose Island Bourbon County Brand Stout barrels.
