Wax On is our first resinated cider. It was inspired by the Retsina wines of Greece, and the pitch barrel pilsners of the Czech Republic.

Here's how we made it.

We started by foraging spruce resin from trees around the cidery. Then, we melted the resin down with beeswax from a local apiarist and coated the inside of 3 barrels with the sticky mixture.

After a day, we added our wild fermented cider to barrel age. 6 months later it's in bottle and tasting phenomenal.

What's it like? While Wax On is dry and tart, it's taken on a sweet, sappy aroma similar to honeycomb or pancake syrup. The flavour is bright Honeycrisp, soft spruce, and a touch of honey taffy.

The resin/spruce notes are quite soft and well integrated—Wax On is surprisingly easy  for such a unique process. The apples truly shine here.

We made 33 cases total. Drink now, or cellar in a cool dark place.
