Episode #266 Naked Apple Hard Cider – Blackberry Gold

Today we are drinking something relatively new for us, a cider, and particularly the Blackberry Gold out of Flat Rock Cider Works, the first Henderson County company to jump into the growing hard-cider market with the introduction of their Naked Apple Hard Cider brand. Naked Apple Hard Ciders are made with the finest apples produced in Henderson County. The company is vertically integrated, and we use a blend of several varieties including Gala, Golden Delicious, Fuji, Jonathan, Granny Smith, Crispin and Winesap to produce premium, well-balanced hard ciders. The Blackberry Gold is described as “Perfect for a picnic! Blackberry Gold has just a hint of mountain grown blackberries woven into this Golden Delicious Cider.”
