This cider is made from one variety of apple, Northern Spy. NS is a unique cider apple because it brings good flavor, good texture, and acidity to the table. Cider is usually a blending game but Northern Spy can do it all on its own. Its bright acidity and deep and complex apple flavor make it an excellent pair for cheese plates, desserts, and drinking alone. Eden is, bar-none, the best producer of ice cider in the US. Ice cider is similar to ice wine but it's made in a slightly different way. With ice wine, the grapes are allowed to freeze on the vine. If cidermaker did that with apples they would fall off the tree and it's not easy to press baseball-sized chunks of ice. So Eden presses the apples and then allows the juice to freeze outside in the Vermont winter and then when the high sugar juice begins to melt, they siphon it off in stages. The first siphon-off is what is used to make ice cider.
