Hear about what makes New York cider special, the question of canning, the truth about dryness, and the definition of endangered apples while Jimmy checks in on the state of New York cider. Jennifer Smith talks about the New York Cider Association’s new label for ciders brewed in New York state with New York-grown apples; Jordan Werner Barry describes the language we use to talk about cider; Dan Pucci shares his cider sommelier expertise; Paige Flori calls in to recommend some ciders she has on tap at Boutique Wines, Spirits, and Cider in Fishkill; and the group tastes ciders from Original Sin with Gidon Coll, and from Kings Highway Fine Cider with Tyler Graham.
