Rustico is a blend of finished ciders from various barrels, all aged from six months to a year. This dry, bottle-conditioned cider expresses our dedication to minimal intervention – the hallmark of our natural cider-making methods. Though the profile of Rustico remains somewhat constant, it does vary from run to run; reflecting the individual barrel choices of the cider maker. Rustico is a perfect fit for any occasion. Pairs well with grilled foods.

Notes

This run of Rustico highlights our natural methods. A blend of wild and cultivated yeast fermentation, this Rustico drinks with a citrus-like acid finish reminiscent of a sidra. We follow natural methods. We do not filter, fine, or add preservatives to our ciders. All are finished to dry, barrel aged, and bottle-conditioned.


Brand for Courthouse Creek Cider
Located in Maidens, VIrginia, Courthouse Creek adheres to natural methods of cider making. Our ciders are free from sulfites and all other additives, and we finish our ciders to dry. Indeed, we like to say, "we're not sweet, we're cider!" We also do not filter or fine our cider, and ferment and/or age everything in used barrels. While we did use some cultured yeasts in the past, this is no longer be the case beginning with the 2019 harvest.

We are the only cidery in Virginia to adhere to these natural methods, and one of a select few to do so on the east coast. We also grow heirloom cider apples with little intervention, using only minimal organic sprays and holistic methods to grow our fruit.. As we wait for our orchard to mature, we source all of our apples locally.
