Skagit Brew Corner: Tieton Local Cherry & Apricot Cider

Sometimes cider is the answer. Especially when it’s delicious and brewed locally, like Tieton Cider Works’ Apricot and Cherry Apple Ciders.

These handcrafted ciders are made in a combination of American, British and French styles that result in blended, award-winning fruit ciders with well-balanced acidity and crispness. Tieton Cider Works, based at a 3rd generation farm, Harmony Orchards in Tieton, Washington.

The Apricot Apple Cider is sweet and tart, with tenderly crisp notes of dried fruit, lemon and tangy apricot. Tieton’s Apple Cherry Cider, by contrast, is almost winelike. It boasts big, full red fruit flavors that linger on the palate, and finish with sweetness and bright acidity.

Enjoy these gluten-free ciders as an appertif or starter bubbly at holiday meals. Or curl up quietly and sip some cider by the fire. They both pair nicely with soft cheeses, as well as grilled meat and fish salads.
