In-Store Tasting:
Potter's Craft Cider Tasting
with Rebecca Woodfin

Saturday, April 20th 1-4pm

 

The short version is that Tim Edmond and Dan Potter are college buddies who shared a love of home-brewing beer, which chance and good fortune transformed into a passion for craft cider. Our path to cider-making was roundabout, but cider embodied the perfect confluence of our interests in agriculture, fermentation, experimentation and discovery.  Our journeys and backgrounds have given us unique perspectives that influence our approach to cider-making, from the apples that we use to the way that we choose to do business.   We continue to be excited by the sense of what is undiscovered – there are still so many apple varieties, yeast strains, and styles of ciders to explore.  We've had a lot of help along the way with strong support from family, friends, and the Charlottesville community, for which we are deeply appreciative.

Potter's - Cherry Vanilla Craft Cider

Lush flavors of cherries and fresh Virginia apples are beautifully complemented by the alluring aroma of Madagascar vanilla beans. Two different varieties of cherries add a distinct jammy flavor to the acidity of Rome and York apples. Whole vanilla beans are steeped in cider and aged in oak barrels before blending back with the cherry infused cider.

Potter's - Hewes Crab Craft Cider

The Hewes Crab Apple is the rare apple that has the tannins, acid, and aromatic intensity to stand on its own as a fully integrated, single varietal cider. Our first Hewes Crab Cider is deep gold in color. Bright tropical fruit aroma is buoyed by refreshing acidity as the cider covers the palate. A portion of the blend was fermented in French oak barrels, adding body to the naturally tannic apples. An incredibly rich, lush, and well-balanced cider that is full-bodied, elegant, and delicious.

Potter's - Farmhouse Dry

Pale gold and effervescent with pronounced fruit aroma hinting of peach and melon. Don't let the heady nose fool you - with no residual sugars, the flavor is crisp, tart, and exceptionally dry. Uniquely refreshing with a crisp finish that pairs well with a variety of foods including pork, duck, wild game, and aged cheeses.
