Growing up in Northern Michigan where orchards abound, many of us have the memory of Grandma plucking a juicy apple from the tree, and cutting it in half for the perfectly sized morning snack. This reveals a perfect star – hence the term starcut.
The seeds exposed through a starcut, are not true to type. In other words, those seeds will create a different type of apple than the type they came from. This unique and serendipitous process serves as inspiration for our ciders. They too, have endless possibilities, a mix of traditional and experimental – they push the boundaries of what cider can be.
