A few weeks back I was invited to a hard cider tour and tasting at the AppleGarden Farm. This beautifully quaint farm is tucked away in Tomales (CA) and run by the sweetest couple, Jan and Louis Lee. They are the cider artisans behind the refreshingly light and crisp beverage. In the past, I have only had hard cider that was incredibly sweet and not something you could pair easily with meals. Their brew of cider could not be more opposite and I must say it was a welcomed change! It contains zero added sugars, flavorings or concentrates AND it’s gluten-free. In addition, their beverage is created 100% from fermented apple juice, solely from apples grown on their beautiful farm.
