Crisp, firm, sweet, and aromatic. That's how we describe the McIntosh apples we use to press our fresh apple cider. The acidic nature of the soil in Vermont produces a McIntosh apple that, when pressed in to cider, is different from anything you've ever tasted. An unsurpassed, perfectly made cider from a real Cider Mill, not a factory. Flash frozen immediately after pressing for optimal shipping. Must ship with expedited shipping.
