Episode 143 – Seminary Hill Cidery – Stuart Madany

This episode features Stuart Madany of ⁠⁠⁠Seminary Hill Cidery.

Doug Doetsch grew up in the Western Catskills. His family goes back five generations. There was a strong desire to start an agricultural project. That’s how Doug and Susan Manning got started with Seminary Hill Cidery. The land was perfect for an apple and pear orchard. Stuart joined the team in October of 2020. Cider began being produced shortly there after his arrival. Stuart shares his journey of cider making. This is an intriguing story of architect turned cider craftsman. We had a wonderful time tasting two of their delicious expressions and learning more about their ciders that they produce.

Episode 140 – Caroline Kristof – Kristof Farms

This episode features Caroline Kristof of Kristof Farms.

In 1971 Caroline’s grandfather purchased 75 acres in Yamhill, Oregon. Originally the farm produced cherries which were grown for the cherry pie industry. Over time the land around them became populated by vineyards and those beautiful cherries were no longer as desirable. In 2018 a decision was made to put in apple trees. Half of what was planted were grapes vines and the other half different apple varietals. They have relied on help and advice from wonderful friends in the cider industry. They have a passion to learn and experience what it takes to make outstanding cider. Each harvest brings them closer to their dream of having guests visit and experience the Kristof family hospitality. They have an exciting future ahead.

For Meghan, she sees so many possibilities with cider. It’s an up and coming industry and she is excited to be a part of it. The orchard sits on 6 acres and produces 30 different apple varietals. They source all of the juice to create their unique ciders that explode with flavor and character.

Episode 134 – Eden Ciders – Eleanor Leger

This episode features ⁠⁠Eleanor Leger of ⁠⁠Eden Ciders .

It was December 2006 when Eleanor and Albert went to Montreal. They tasted ice cider for the first time. Their reaction was that it was amazing. They thought that they could procduce this ice cider in Vermont. The made their first batch in their basement. Six years after making it and selling to to local restaurants they began to explore what has become Eden Cider. In the beginning cider wasn’t a thing in the United States. It was considered more of a desert wine. They discovered different apple varietals to make a wider array of ciders. Eleanor and Albert have come a long way from their infancy. Today they produce unique, well crafted ciders that are layered in flavor, depth and character. So, why not cider? Pick up a bottle or can and taste for yourself.

Episode 130 – The Whip Tavern – K.C. Kulp, Tim Baker and Brandon Wyatt

This episode features K.C. Kulp, Tim Baker and Brandon Wyatt of The Whip Tavern.

K.C. lost his job as an IT specialist at a major brokerage firm in NYC in 2003.  He decided to purchase a biker bar and turned it into The Whip Tavern. K.C. always had a desire to be in the restaurant business.  He opened the whip in 2005 and today it is a premier destination restaurant.  A quiet little British style country pub with delicious food and a phenomenal beer and cider selection.  The restaurant serves as much locally sourced food as possible.  The atmosphere, the portions, the flavors, the energy and the amazing service all come together to make The Whip a special Gem.  This should most certainly be on your bucket list to visit again and again and again.
