Dillingers Cocktails & Kitchen

We've been waiting for this place to open for some time now. It's Olympia's newest and hottest spot for cocktails and eats and Whitewood Cider is on tap. In fact the bartenders have even got our cider worked into a a traditional cider drink called the Stone Fence. A Stone Fence is made up of cider, bourbon... In this case Four Roses Bourbon, and a little lemon. We can tell you first hand that is delicious. 

Speaking of tasty while you are visiting Dillingers make sure to order some of the foodie friendly fare cooked up by Chef Lela. They've got happy hour specials, small plates, dessert, and it's all some of the best eats Oly has to offer. Not too far down the road you can look forward to ice cream and sorbet made with Whitewood Cider, as well as some possible dishes and pairings. Don't miss out!

Whitewood Cider's Dave White featured as one of the Imbibe 75 for 2014


It is with great pride that I announce that David White has been selected as one of the Imbibe 75 .

Imbibe magazine is on the leading edge of what is happening the beverage world. Being the beverage lovers that we are, Imbibe has always been the magazine subscription that gets renewed at the beginning of every year and gets saved for future reference.

So, it was a thrilling surprise to learn that Dave had been selected, in the words of Imbibe, as one of the "top picks for the people, places and flavors that will help shape the way we all drink in the year ahead." While I couldn't agree more, I am slightly biased... I am happy to see that a publication, such as Imbibe, agrees with me.

Dave has had a long standing passion for Cider and Cidermaking. He is one person who has turned his dreams into a reality with the creation of our small business here at Whitewood Cider. Many know that his expertise exceeds the bounds of this endeavor with his work in graphic design, the development of the NW Cider Association and the blog, OldTimeCider.com. I know that this selection will continue to drive his passion. He is committed to putting specialty, craft cider on the map

Thank you all for your encouragement, involvement and support. We couldn't do it without you. 

My very best, 


Traditional Mulled Cider Recipe

Originally publish December 30, 2012. Recipe update on December 17, 2013.

To tease your palate, here is Dave’s recipe for hot spiced cider:

Here’s to a cheer filled Holiday and New Year. This recipe is a particular favorite in the traditional cider regions of England during the Holidays and Wassailing. Americans generally mull "cider" using fresh apple juice. We like it with a dry to semi-dry fermented cider. While making the following quantity is not cheap it does go quite a ways at a party and the recipe can easily be divided into half.

Preparation method

  • Combine the following ingredients ingredients in a large saucepan and simmer gently for 30 minutes - do not boil.


  • 2 750ml bottles (1.5 liters) of Whitewood Cider or other comparable local craft cider.
  • 1 apples quartered studded with whole cloves
  • 2-3 cinnamon sticks
  • 4-5 allspice berries
  • 2 cardamom pods
  • 1-2 star anise
  • 2" piece of vanilla bean split
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • zest strips of 1/2 to 1 orange (to taste, too much can over power your drink)
  • (optional) zest strips of meyer lemon.
  • fresh squeezed orange and meyer lemon juice to taste.
  • We highly suggest apple spirits like Apple Brandy, Calvados, or even Apple Jack to taste/strength, but rum and whiskey will also work. We enjoy 3oz per 750ml bottle. 
  • slices of apple for garnish
  • If too dry, sweeten to taste with honey, sugar, brown sugar, maple syrup, etc.
  • Holiday extras such as cranberries and whatever else you want to throw in (within good taste) is generally welcome. Make it your own!
