Eve’s Cidery 2014 Northern Spy

eves-cidery-2014-northern-spy

It’s been a long journey to get here, but this is my first-ever cider review. In a few ways, it’s only fitting that it’s Eve’s Cidery 2014 Northern Spy ($17/750ml). First, it was a bottle of Eve’s Cidery Perry Pear — a gift from a friend — that really opened my eyes to the possibilities that lay beyond the commercial-style ciders and perrys that I’d had in the past. Second, Eve Cidery’s Autumn Stoscheck then nudged me along toward this moment by suggesting that the New York cider community needed someone like me to start paying attention to it. She then sent me…

Eve’s Cidery Essence

By Lenn Thompson, Editor-in-Chief As an admitted wine and beer geek, I really (really) love stumbling upon new libations in unexpected places. I love it even more if it's a style or beverage that is new to me. I picked up a bottle of this Eve's Cidery Essence ($22) at the Ithaca Farmer's Market last summer — after I spent way too much time deciding which of the amazing, mostly ethnic, food stalls to buy lunch from. Essence is an "ice cider" that is made by allowing late harvest juice to freeze partially. As the juice freezes the water is…
