Bottles we sell:
The first product we produced, and in many ways still the best. The true essence of Minnesota apples in their finest form, with a bit of sparkle. With no added sugar, this is a bracing, refreshing drink for a beautiful Minnesota day, winter or summer. $12.95/ 22 oz. bottle plus tax.
Semisweet is a fruitier version of our dry cider, made from the same local apples, but lightly sweetened. Tannic and semisweet in the style of a British cider and not overly carbonated. Enjoy it with food and friends. $12.95/ 22 oz. bottle plus tax.
This is one of our favorite recipes- wine made from fresh picked Minneapolis and St. Paul dandelions. Floral, light, grassy and just slightly bitter. This is a truly unique wine found in few other places. 750 ml/$18.51 +tax.
Made from honey, purified water and yeast. A heavy-bodied, but not-so-sweet nectar of the gods. You need not wear tights or chainmail to enjoy mead. It’s quaffed by folk of all sorts. Higher alcohol than a cider, so please drink responsibly! $18.51/750 ml. bottle plus tax.
Gin Botanical cider
We use the spices that give gin its distinctive flavor- juniper berries, coriander and black pepper along with other herbs and infuse our dry cider with them. It creates a sour, savory, tongue-tickling combination, unlike any other cider we’ve made. $12.95/ 22 oz. bottle plus tax.
Maple and Oak cider
Aged in an oak barrel along with toasted French oak chips, then lightly sweetened with 100% organic maple syrup, this cider is a symphony in your mouth. In 22 oz. bottles for $15.78 plus tax.
Yes, it’s really made from local pears! In fact, they all came from backyard trees in the metro area, primarily within the city limits of Minneapolis and St. Paul. It tastes like you think it would, perhaps better. Full of fresh pear flavor and sparkle and drier than you might expect. 22 oz. bottle for 15.78 plus tax
Originally made from currants grown in our back yard, we’ve taken to sourcing them from a farm near Bayfield as the demand for this has grown. Taste it and you’ll see why! Ruby-red and luscious, you’ll soon be hooked. This is often our bestseller. 22 oz. bottle for 15.78 plus tax
Ever wonder what mead blended with a high-tannin cider would taste like? Then answer is semisweet and delicious. Honey and apples just work well together. Try it and see. 22 oz. bottle for 18.56 plus tax
Honey Toast cider
Cider sweetened with caramelized (toasted) local honey as well as local buckwheat honey. The dark honey gives the cider an orange color and a flavor redolent of light coffee or roasted pecans. Truly unique among ciders. 22 oz. bottle for 15.78 plus tax
We don’t make beer, but this is close. Gluten-free like all of our offerings, we begin with a dry cider base and add Mosaic and Cascade hops to create a thirst-quenching golden summer cider. 22 oz. bottle for 12.95 plus tax
Mead blended with tart cherry wine. Zingy, tart, bright red, luscious, not too sweet, sexy. So many descriptions packed into a such a little bottle, but absolutely delightful. 22 oz. bottle for 27.84 plus tax
–-Sold out– Mead blended with blueberry wine. Soft, warm, lightly sweet, a deep burgundy to plum color, sensuous but refined. Blueberry melomel is everything we had hoped to make in a melomel. It’s quite satisfying. If you try it, you’ll be more than satisfied. 22 oz. bottle for 35.15 plus tax
Frontenac (red wine)
A substantial and robust dry red wine made from Midwestern grapes. Our Frontenac grapes come from a vineyard outside of Hudson and are bursting with tannin and stone fruit flavor. 750 ml. bottle for 18.56 plus tax
Louise (white wine)
–Sold out– Now this is a great Midwestern wine. We managed the vineyard, picked the grapes, then barrel aged this dry white wine in an oak barrel for 5 months. It’s wonderful. 22 oz. bottle for 27.84 plus tax
Rhubarb; fruit of the north, provider of pies and jams, the first taste of spring. It makes a wine as wonderful as all of these, and we are thankful. Sweet, fresh, exhilarating! 22 oz. bottle for 27.84 plus tax
–Sold out– A higher-alcohol dessert wine made from native plums, in the style of an Eastern European plum wine, rather than the more familiar Japanese style. Sweet and delicious. Careful- it’ll creep up on you! 750 ml. bottle for $35.15 plus tax
Pineapple & Banana wine
About as weird as it sounds. Ask at the bar for the story behind this one. Likely this is the only time we’ll make it- not because it’s not good- it’s great! But because where are we going to be able to forage this fruit ever again? 750 ml. bottle for $27.77 plus tax
Yes, it’s really made from carrots, and some apples too. Everyone wants to know if it actually tastes like carrots and the answer is: sort of. It’s light orange and has a hint of carrot flavor and the overall impression of a light-bodied white wine. You should try it if you’re curious. 750 ml bottle for 27.77 plus tax.
Edelweiss (white wine)
Wonderfully fruity acidity characterizes this refreshing white wine. When paired with food, its clean and bright flavor brings out the best in summer barbecue or a winter feast. 750 m bottle for $27.77 plus tax
Frontenac Gris (rose’ wine)
Light and fruity with a hint of acidity, this one may take you by surprise.Deep pink from a natural source- Frontenac Gris grapes from a farm near Mankato with just a hint of Frontenac Noir. Semi-sweet and super fun to drink, this wine goes down easy. 750 ml bottle for 27.77 plus tax.
O Tannin Bomb
O tannin bomb. How lovely are thy tannins. Bitter and sharp as a traditional British craft cider, but without the snootiness. 750 ml bottle for 15.78 plus tax.
All-natural cider vinegar made from the leftovers from our hard cider batches. Sour, funky and powerful! Ask for a taste at the bar, and brace yourself! 16 oz. jar for $5.00 tax-free, cuz it’s food!
