Cider Maker’s Description

Blackbird is our American-style berry-flavored cider, blended with the juices of black currants and elderberries. It's a little sweet and a bunch tart.

  • minimal carbonation, almost still


  • earthy, black currant, berries are present but not dominant, there's a damp forest quality to it


  • flavor explosion, black currant, blackberry


  • full flavored not full bodied, slight acid bite


  • lingering berry flavor, some lingering sweetness

Matthew favors dry hard ciders with body and leans towards traditional English styles, and he’s also developed a serious appreciation for hopped ciders and creative flavor infused ciders. Though he prefers sweets in solid forms, he does enjoy semi-sweet to sweet ciders responsibly when the mood strikes. Learn more about our Chief Cider Curator here.
