“The earthy liveliness of the apple blends with the tart mystery of organic black currant for a delightful sparkling cider. An easy cider to pair with salads, fish, fragrant cheeses and other light fare.”

There is a very limited supply of black currants in Oregon, but a small farmer in Scio, Oregon grows beautiful currants and she provides them still on the stem, which is ideal, so we decided to experiment. We macerated her black currants in our clear fruit brandy and the result is truly wonderful:  a tart, lightly sweet, slightly earthy liqueur with huge fruit flavor. Lovely in the classic Kir and Kir Royale (cassis in white wine or champagne, respectively) or sipped on its own.
