Just when winter is starting to peak, Stowe Cider welcomes back Berry Merrill, a locally infused cider that recreates the taste of a perfect summer afternoon: unforgettable, and always gone just a little too soon.
Berry Merrill is a cider infused with local blueberries and Vermont maple syrup. In creating this one-of-a-kind and supremely satisfying cider, Stowe Cider sought berries and maple syrup from two of the state’s most respected producers: the Charlotte Berry Farm, in Charlotte, and Nebraska Knoll in Stowe.
A delicate nose of apples gives way to perfectly ripe blueberries with a hint of maple candy on the outskirts. The first taste reveals the blueberry and gives way to the unique, rich sweetness of Vermont maple syrup, but ends with the perfect balance of a semi-dry finish.
Berry Merrill is only available at the Stowe Cider tasting room at 17 Town Farm Lane in Stowe, VT. Quantities are very limited and are expected to go quickly, unlike the long days of Vermont winters.
