tHE BASICS OF cIDER MAKING
WHO MAKES IT
Hailing from Northern California, he worked as a winemaker & distiller before discovering his passion for cider. He became an avid home cidermaker before following his love of unusual apple varietals all the way to us in Vermont!
He was the first to bring Sangria cider to the East Coast, in the form of Sidira, he pioneered the blend for our driest release yet, the winter seasonal, Somerset, and he also has been working with our unusual apples to produce a single-varietal estate series.
Keep an eye out for new and exciting things coming out of the cidery in the future; his mind is always working...
Coming from decades in the beer industry, Jim has worked on many a brew tower. He executes the Head Cidermaker’s vision, from pitching to blending.
You will never meet another human who loves coffee as much as Jim does.
