Old Settlers Cider Thirty Three Bees-
New Hampshire- whose motto is "Live Free or Die" and is known internationally for the New Hampshire primary, the first primary in the U.S. presidential election cycle. New Hampshire also has 1,300 lakes or ponds and about 40 rivers with a total mileage of about 41,800 miles and is heavily forested with an abundance of elm, maple, beech, oak, pine, hemlock and fir trees. Mount Washington features rare alpine plants such as Greenland sandwort, Labrador tea, alpine bearberry, dwarf cinquefoil and dwarf birch, willow and balsam fir. Along with all this natural beauty New Hampshire is also known for its 50 apple orchards in a relatively small state, and for being home to nine cider makers.
Moonlight Meadery- It all started back in 1995, when Michael tried a cyser (apple and honey mead) for the first time. Since that first sip Michael has developed a passion, and a masterful skill at making international award winning meads. Michael Fairbrother has started Moonlight Meadery®, with a mission to bring ultra premium meads to the market place. It is more than a product and it is more than a process, it's our obsession. Our meads will be unique, and unlike anything you have ever tried, you will find it incredible! We are going to embrace the unique nature of natural honey as minimally processed as possible.
|Great Mischief- is a dry, gently sparkling cider made from an ever changing mix of fine locally grown apples. It's refreshing, with just a touch of tingle added through bottle conditioning||Devils Bit Irish Hard Cider (IMPORTED)- is a perfectly balanced cider produced by the Adam's Cider Company from apples grown in their own orchards in County Tipperary. It's double fermented and cold filtered, and is one of the best selling ciders in Ireland. |

Farnum Hill Semi-Dry Cider- Golden, gently bubbly, with a delicious array of tropic fruits, citrus, and mysterious aromatic notes in the nose and on the palate. Our Semi-Dry cider is much less sweet than semi-dry champagnes. We use that much-abused word “dry” in a literal-minded way, striving to balance the faintest sweetness against sharpness, astringency, and fruit (which is different from sweet).
|Farnum Hill Extra Dry Cider- Pale gold, bubbly, radically dry. Richly aromatic, suggesting myriad fruits of the earth, and the earth itself, with a complex, palate-cleansing balance of fruit, astringency, and acid. Made, like Semi-Dry, from a range of late-harvest, difficult apple varieties.||Extra Dry Still- is the most austere blend we make: no bubbles, no dosage of returned sugar, nothing but New Hampshire-grown cider apples parading their best in any given year. Pale-gold and radically dry, Extra Dry Still displays its richness and range of fruit more vividly than Extra Dry, simply because no peppy prickly bubble sensation can intervene. FH Extra Dry Still is made from a range of late-harvest, difficult cider apple varieties, and nothing else.|
|Kingston Black technically is a “bittersharp” apple variety, which in the English-speaking cider world means that its high tannin and acid levels make it a suitable cider apple: however, its sugar level, at least growing here, regularly yields 8.5% alcohol. We release a hundred or so cases of ‘Special Reserve,’ made only from this apple, in years when our KB is showing all its charms. ||"Farmhouse"- Our lightest, most casual cider, pale gold and bubbly, with a stroke of sweetness along with the tart, bitter, and fruity elements that good cider offers. Citrus, pineapple, bittersweet apple, and a trace of the barn. Farmhouse astringency is nowhere near the extreme, but shows a certain tannic edge. Agreeably versatile, sharing certain flavor elements with both beer and wine. A clean, appetizing finish makes it congenial with many kinds of food, from the snackiest to the whole-grainiest and back. ||Dooryard is an old/new idea, typical of Poverty Lane Orchards. Many cider orchards abroad do big business in the yard, to local customers who come to fill their empties with whatever the cidermaker dispenses that day. In 2008 we began seeing enough cider explorers here to do the same. Last year, bottles and kegs of Dooryard ciders set out into the world! Well, into nearby Northeastern states, anyway.|
|Summer Cider- is golden and gently sparkling, blended to remind people in the States that good ciders make ideal summer “wines,” something the wider world never forgot. So in this one we go for prominent fruit and keen acid, soft-pedaling the tannic, earthy notes common to the other FHC blends. In Summer Cider the fruits are rich, the citrusy notes are strong, with gentle sweetness in the background. It’s a bit like whiskey sours, without the alcoholic whack. |
|Kurt's Apple Pie- One of our biggest selling meads made from local apple cider with Madagascar-bourbon vanilla and Vietnamese cinnamon spice added.||Virtue- Conditioned in our Utopian barrels for up to 6 months. Hints of vanilla and coconut from the oak, blend with the apple and honey. A deep rich apple with the hints of bourbon and a smooth honey finish. ||Blossom- Semi-Sweet, Our Cyser (mead made from apples and honey) is made from Sunnycrest Apple cider of Londonderry NH, the fresh pressed apples add a tart start with semi-sweet finish. Such a light, refreshing taste it can accompany any dish that is rich in flavor or just enjoyed as a festive or aperitif wine, pairs well with cheese plates, poultry or just on its own. This recipe has won awards over the last 15 years, and most recently a Bronze at the 2013 Silver Medal winner at the 2013 Mazer Cup International competition.|
|Last Apple- Here's the back story, we took the very last New Hampshire apples that were available to us, which we had fresh pressed into apple cider. This fresh cider was delivered the day it was pressed to our Meadery, where we blended it with True Source Honey and let it ferment, then we let it age in freshly emptied Jim Beam barrels that our friends at Allagash Brewing Company were able to help us with. The aging process took over 6 months. The ending result is oh so heavenly and oh so cherished. It's not the like any of the other honey apple meads that we make, its got an entirely new label design, that we feel show cases every little detail about how precious this sweet honey apple mead is.||Deviant- Devious, playful rebellion from the usual. Uniquely refreshing, smooth blend of honey, apple and ginger. Slightly sweet apple and spicy ginger please from aroma to lingering finish. A little rebellion is good.... made from apple cider from Sunnycrest Farms in Londonderry, NH.|

Farnum Hill Ciders at Poverty Lane Orchards- On Farnum Hill, we use the word “cider” to mean an alcoholic beverage fermented from particular apples, just as “wine” is fermented from particular grapes. (Fresh apple juice is – well – fresh apple juice, or ‘sweet cider.’) Cider is a word that covers an enormous variety of adult beverages made from apples. Our style is all about flaunting the delights of the fruit that grows best on this place. Farnum Hill Ciders, at 6.5-7.5% alcohol, tend toward the dry, sharp, fruity and bountifully aromatic. We make them to gladden the moment and light up the flavors of food. During Prohibition, apple-growers urgently needed a new teetotal image. That PR problem helped cut the normal old word “cider” from its normal old meaning, and paste it to the sweet brown ephemeral juice of autumn, normally called “apple juice” or “sweet cider.” So even now, a lot of our fellow Americans find Farnum Hill ciders a bit startling.
