Gunner’s Libation: Ice Cider
In searching for unique holiday gifts, I stumbled across this one: Ice cider (think dessert wine) made from heirloom apples. Can you think of anything more appropriate or delicious to serve with a warm apple crisp, apple cake or a nice wedge of cheddar cheese? Eleanor and Albert Leger, founders of Eden Ice Cider, produce a rich, full-bodied ice cider from their apple orchards where they grow both sweet and sour heirloom varietals. A 375 ml bottle is made from more than 8 pounds of apples. They offer eight ice cider options including honeycrisp as well as a smaller 187 ml limited release Brandy Barrel Heirloom Blend Ice Cider.
