So right about now, if you're sitting back and sipping on a cold refreshing RJO apple cider fresh from off the press. I'm betting you've got a smile on your face. I know the moment I got to enjoy one of our seasonal ciders that the PRIDE OF THE SEASON is back – our fresh crafted delicious apple ciders!
Another rewarding activity is reading the label; it says it all. One ingredient, APPLES! So even though it's taken us over 60 years to hone and perfect our craft, spoiler alert, it's really quite simple. Insist on the best fruit, smash it cold, squeeze, gently pasteurize for safety, bottle cold. Our team practices this expertise all year long, but especially during cider season. And let me take this moment to thank them (and their families) for the dedication and commitment, the long hours and weeks, and the joy they bring to the organization. THANK YOU!
So when you get that first sip, I hope you picture yourself sitting right in the orchard. Enjoy and hooray for fall!
