Handcrafted hard cider

Rootwood cider is crafted using several different types of apples. Each variety has unique characteristics and differences in color, aroma, clarity, and flavor. After crushing and pressing the apples, these characteristics remain in the juice and throughout the fermentation, blending, filtration, and pasteurizing process.  Each blend of cider may look different in the glass or bottle. Sometimes there may be natural sediment or color change in the cider depending on the blend and cidermaking process.
