Harvest Ration

Prior to the Temperance Movement, it was commonplace for Virginians working the apple harvest to receive a daily ration of cider and brandy – the first for hydration and the second for aches and pains. HARVEST RATION reflects this tradition, creating a dessert cider made from bittersweet apples. Because of its lengthy cask-aging, Harvest Ration is usually not available until about one year after the initial harvest of the fruit.
