Sparkling gold clear Off Dry cider featuring local Dolgo Crabs, Ashmead's Kernel, Arkansas Black, and Zaberau apples.
Crabbottom Valley, the original name for Highland’s Blue Grass Valley, was named due to its abundance of crabapple trees. Pippin is a word that describes an apple tree that is grown from seed, like our abundant wild trees. Often these wild trees are crab apples; and while not always great for eating, they make a beautiful complex cider with tannins and unique flavors. Crabbottom Pippin includes many of our wild apples and is our driest offering. It will be unique every year due to the availability of these wild apples.
Tart, and astringent, at the front, balancing out with hints of grapefruit, cherry and spicy floral notes. Tannins present, but slight, finishes with a clean mouthfeel. This is a favorite cider among the dry wine/cider drinkers.
Crabbottom Pippin tends to pair well pork dishes, sausage, practically any cheeses but particularly blue cheeses and sharp cheeses.
