Samuel Smith’s Organic Cider

Samuel Smith's Organic CiderFrom Yorkshire’s Oldest Brewery
Samuel Smith’s Organic Cider is a medium dry cider with a brilliant straw-gold color and excellent clarity. It has a light body with brilliant conditioning, a crisp flavor, and a dry finish. The bouquet is fresh apples, with a soft apple blossom floral note. The cider is 5% ABV, registered vegan, and naturally gluten free. It is best served at about 44°F.

The brewery
Founded in 1758 in Tadcaster, North Yorkshire, England, Samuel Smith–also known as The Old Brewery–is indeed the oldest brewery in Yorkshire. With traditional brewing methods used since its founding, the brewery still makes its own barrels and repairs all of its oak casks. The original well, sunk in 1758, is still in use, with its gypsum-rich hard brewing water drawn from 85 feet underground. Fortunately, some of their cider is exported to the United States.

And, since we don’t live in Tadcaster, we won’t be having our cider delivered on the Shire horse home delivery service. So, we will have to settle for picking up a few bottles at Piedmont Grocery.
