We've had our eye on Olympia's Whitewood Cider Co. since they started making cider last fall. They even made our list of 2013 Cider Makers to Watch. So we were excited to find that David and Heather's ciders exceeded our expectations. Of their three inaugural ciders, our favorite was the Northland Traditional Blend. The Northland's fuller blend of traditional cider apples combines all the complexity, acidity, and tannins of a traditional English cider with enough body to attract a diverse range of drinkers. This may be our new choice to convert the uninitiated into the world of cider.
