Cysers, Meads, & Cyders
Updated July 28, 2022
Bossfight: Our flagship cyser is a hazy, sparkling golden wine, with strong apple, crisp tartness, and warming honey finish.
Summer of '22: Summer is here and we all deserve a party, so let's get it roaring! This swell hooch pairs best with hot jazz and cool evenings. Try ritzing this dry cyser with blueberries & lemon up with your favorite gin or rye.
Smoke Show: A collaboration with Van Smokey: a meat shop & market located in Livingston Manor, NY that smokes up a storm. Apples smoked with cherry wood were cofermented with NYS apple cider & honey. This results in a rich and complex cyser with notes of whiskey barrel, burnt apples, and a bright tart finish.
Potion of Glory
Helen: Created by cofermenting NYS apples and honey to bone dry, then aged on oak spirals. A full bodied cyser with notes of vanilla, dark spice, and smoke.
Excelsior: Our flagship mead gets its name from the New York state motto, which means "Ever Upward". It reminds us to learn from mistakes, never give up, and make tomorrow better than yesterday. Fermented with local honey for a crisp, slightly sweet, and very crushable refreshment. Excelsior!
Retired till next year
There's Something About Maple aka TSAM: A complex cyser cofermented with local NYS apples, honey, and very dark grade maple syrup. This empire state cyser isn't like pancake syrup, but rather is full of warm woody notes with a rich sweetness.
Most of the year it's hoodie weather here in the Sullivan Catskills. Even in the dead of summer we have nights that can be straight up chilly! Hoodie Weather is an off-dry cyser that we steeped our proprietary blend of mulling spices.
