Cider Maker’s Description
Gitche Gumee Ciderworks is proud to utilize agricultural products from our home in the Keweenaw Peninsula of Upper Michigan. We use local flavors and slow, traditional techniques to create superior ciders. These unique hard ciders are a tribute to our terroir and the community from which they come.
Rhubee starts as hand-pressed, locally grown wild apples. After a long, cool spontaneous fermentation, we blend in home-grown rhubarb and sweeten with pure local wildflower honey. Effervescent, off-dry, and gluten-free, it's a unique taste combination of spring, summer and fall.
This cider pairs well with anything delicious or can be enjoyed all by itself!
