An Unfiltered Cider made with freshly pressed New York McIntosh apples. This cider is rich and complex, reflecting the balanced sweetness and acidity of this historic apple.
In the early 19th Century, John McIntosh noticed a young apple tree growing on his property in Ontario near the U.S. border. Delighted by the delicious fruit produced by the tree, he sold seeds to his neighbors hoping to popularize the new type of apple. It took him years to realize that apples do not grow true to seed and that varietal propagation could only be achieved through grafting. Today, the McIntosh is commonly grown in New York, Canada, New England, and Michigan. The aromatic McIntosh with its distinct white flesh and vinous flavor is coveted for fresh eating and cider production. Notably, Apple Inc.’s Macintosh computer is named after this well-loved apple.
