Great cider  is just about the most perfect drink. It's just a whisper of apples, almost like a memory with a passing sweetness, quickly opening up to a dry, tart bubble with mouth scrubbing tannins. The lasting impression is something like a walk in an old orchard, crisp fall air, a wet footfall, warm sunshine. Those are the ciders we want to make -- ones that will stay on your mind and tweak your imagination.
