Virginia Hewes Crab

Virginia Hewes Crab

Notes from the CiderMaker: This cider is made from Hewes Crab, a rare, old Virginia cider apple. It produces a rich, viscous juice that ferments into a complex and well-balanced cider. Its high sugar content continually results in an alcohol level of 9-10%. Virginia Hewes Crab was a staple among colonial and early American cider orchards. Thomas Jefferson grew it in Monticello’s cider orchard. It was a favored cider of George Washington. He even had Hewes Crab cider shipped to him from Mount Vernon during the Revolutionary War. It is a true American treasure.

Flavor: Tart notes of grape and lemon are rounded out by peach and vanilla. Medium body with a lingering finish.

Food Pairings: Curries; fish tacos; quiche
