“…We started our Saturday early with an hour and a half drive south down Route 7 to Champlain Orchards in Shoreham, VT. They were super accommodating and had their cider maker come in on his day off for us. We got to sample through each cider they have to offer in their new tasting room, the original farmhouse on the property that has since been transported and redesigned. We got a sneak peek at some new things coming out soon and got to pull a sample from a tote of something yet-to-be-released. The property itself is beautiful. They grow all 110 varieties of apples used in their products on-site. In addition to hard cider, they have a farm market that is opened year-round selling local Vermont goods. On our way out, we each grabbed our favorite cider. Mine was Somerset, a traditional dry cider with an unintentional hint of fresh lime.”

Once upon a time, cider was relegated as the beer alternative for the gluten intolerant.
