Ashmead’s Kernel and Reinette Musquee (also known as Margil) originated in England and France in the early 1700s. They are both classic russet varieties cherished for fresh eating as well as cider. Chris Negronida, one of our cider makers, conjured up this varietal blend a few years ago, and we all loved it! This blend was cold fermented and then bottle conditioned in the traditional method champenoise.

Tasting Notes: Delicate tannins and bright acidity under notes of apricot, nutmeg and cloves.

Brand for Black Diamond Cider
Black Diamond Cider was started as a family-owned orchard on the west slope of Cayuga Lake in Upstate NY. We grow all of the fruit that goes into our ciders. The orchard contains over 100 varieties of apples and pears—many of them rare heirlooms and European varieties selected especially for their cider making qualities.
Our ciders are made in small batches using traditional cider making methods.
Each of our ciders is a unique blend that expresses the diversity of flavor and aroma found in our apples.
