RARE APPLE SERIES
THE KINGSTON BLACK apple has garnered much praise and admiration from cider makers on these shores and beyond. Originating in the UK, and very sparsely grown here in the United States, these apples possess the 3 ingredients known to make a well balanced cider: tannins, acidity, & sugar. The skin of these apples glow a deep red color, thus the “black” in their name. Our experience with these apples have been happy ones. The freshly pressed juice has a distinct ruby color tasting sharp with a dense fruitiness. Musky tannins abound. This balance leads to a remarkable fermented cider. These apples are notoriously fussy to grow, but from our perspective the results are worth the effort.
