Westcott Bay Ciderworks is located on the Northwest edge of San Juan Island in Washington State. The cidery, which also acts as a distillery, is home to one of the oldest orchards in Washington State. Today, the cidery’s apples come from orchards planted in the 1990s and include a number of traditional cider apple varieties including Kingston Black, Yarlington Mill, Dabinett and Sweet Coppin.
We recently tasted and reviewed two of the ciderwork’s offerings pressed from the 2013 harvest of apples:
Both are outstanding ciders made with a deft hand and particularly impressive for their balance and purity of flavors.
The Pacific Northwest, along with New York State, continues to be the most exciting cider region in North America. Westcott Bay is a prime candidate for showing off the high quality cider being produced from the area’s beautiful and abundant apple orchards.
