West County Kingston Black Cider
West County Ciders • United States
“Often described as the ‘perfect cider apple’, the Kingston Black also has a reputation for being very difficult to grow. The apple is dark red and dense fleshed, with anise over-tones. The cider has an intense aroma and deep golden color. This vintage was fermented with wild yeast, giving it an earthy character unusual in West County ciders.
Since 1984, in the face of artificial sweeteners and industrial production, the Maloney family (Terry, Judith, and Field) have passionately crafted artisanal ciders that are dry, complex, and very satisfying. Today, they continue to create beautiful ciders with apples from their orchard of European, English, and traditional American varietals. “
