Pét-nat style Cider

Pet nats have a rustic feel, with delicious frothy bubbles and a bit of sediment. Pair this cider with a thick slice of sourdough rye slathered with cultured butter.
The Story of 2021 Home Farm Pét-nat
This is the first bottling of what we hope will become a regular in our line up, a pet nat made from a field blend harvested from our certified organic Albee Hill orchard. The blend consists of varieties that we planted in quantity, 20 years ago, with a vision of providing a balanced cider blend. Those varieties are: Ellis Bitter (tannins and bittersweet aroma), Bramley’s Seedling (pure acid), Golden Russet (aroma), Northern Spy (minerality), Liberty (aroma) and Goldrush (acid). The cider was blended mostly at the press and a little bit before bottling and bottled at 1.010 residual sugar to capture a natural spritz in the bottle. The painting on the label was made by our daughter, Leila.
