The Birdie is a semi-sweet cider that delivers a big sour cherry punch, an allusion of spice, and a fresh apple flavor. We make this cider with our blend of ND apples and the reddest juiciest tart cherries. The Birdie has the best aroma and an eye catching red hue. A real treat for your senses!
To harvest the cherries used to make this cider, we climb up into the netted trees and snip off the cherries with scissors, one cluster at a time. To protect the cherries from birds, the trees are netted, all except for a few. We’ve been told, “The birds have to eat too!” Thank goodness the well-fed orchard birds leave some cherries for us. To give a nod to the birds, we’ve named this cider after our feathered friends and our very own Birdie.
