To celebrate NYC Cider Week, on October 20 starting at 7 pm, we'll be featuring four (maybe even five!) artisanal ciders, which you can consume separately, or, even better, get in a flight of four seven-ounce pours for only $10. We'll also have folks from the cidery on hand to answer all your questions. Cider descriptions:
1. Crispin Hard Apple Cider is naturally fermented using fresh pressed apple juice, not concentrate, from a premium blend of West Coast apples. A classically styled but untraditional hard apple cider. Fruit forward, with a crunchy apple nose and a refreshingly crisp mouth feel.
2. Crispin Honey Crisp Artisanal Reserve is a small-batch hand crafted hard apple cider smoothed with real organic honey for a rich, creamy, full-bodied taste.
3. Crispin The Saint Artisanal Reserve is a uniquely debonair and elegant cider. Naturally fermented using a premium blend of fresh pressed apple juice and Belgian Trappist beer yeasts, The Saint boasts a sweet floral bouquet that develops a yeasty, herbal complexity. The Saint is smoothed with pure organic maple syrup for a silky, sustained mouthfeel that develops complexity on the palate.
4. Crispin Lansdowne Artisanal Reserve is a confident and imposing cider. It is fermented from a premium blend of fresh pressed apple juice using Irish stout ale yeast. It produces a slight hint of butterscotch, balanced by a subtle fruitiness, a slightly dry crisp finish, and a uniquely full and buttery mouthfeel.
