Abiding by the age-old philosophy that “apples don’t fall far from the tree,” Far From the Tree Cider does well to convince its patrons that apple cider tends to take on the characteristics of its arboreal source, too. With names like Roots, Rind, Sprig and Spice, the cidery’s products certainly exude the ingredients making up their family tree from nature to soil and weather—only in sippable form. The Salem, Massachusetts tasting room is officially open, so head on over with your own family—dogs and kiddos are welcome—and grab a flight of cider, plus grub on a petite feast from Far from the Tree’s culinary partner, Ferreira Foods.
‘Tis the season to fall for Sprig Cider, a dry hopped mint cider concocted with Cascade hops and fresh mint. Soft whispers of minty fresh flurries weave their way through aromas of locally grown Massachusetts apples. Think a carbonated Mojito, rum swapped out for hops and tart apple for the sweetness—a delightful sipper for any time of day.
