Cider Maker’s Description
A "Pippin" Apple is a chance seedling that, like the great American Experiment itself, has risen as a rebellious orphan to greatness.
The Newtown Pippin is known for its complex and tart flavor. This specialty single-varietal cider is crafted with 100% Heirloom Newtown Pippin Apples and French Wine Yeast in LockHorn's classic dry, clean style.
"They have no apples [in Paris] to compare with our Newtown Pippin." - Thomas Jefferson
An apple allowed to follow its natural instinct will ferment to reach its full untamed potential...cider.
- straw color, clear, dull
