Cider Master Reserve
2 Towns Ciderhouse
A Note on This Beer
When it comes to pursuing excellence, the sky’s the limit. Nothing exemplifies this more than 2 Towns Cider Master Reserve Batch No. 1.
In a bold move, 2 Towns marries four different barrel vintages with four different heirloom apple varieties to create the champagne of the cider world. But an intense focus on barreling and a limited supply of select artisan apples means only 300 cases of these beauties were made – and the entire country has to share them.
The vibrant elegance and dry fruit notes of Batch No. 1 herald their diverse barrel ancestry of Rum, Bourbon, Bordeaux and Brandy – each sip is an exquisite dive into uncommon fruity depths and complex vinous flavor.
This masterful barrel select blend builds off the trademark dryness of a traditional English-style cider and transcends into apple divinity. Plump Bramley Seedlings deliver their favored tartness, revered Ashmead Kernels and classic Newtown Pippins bring a deviled sweetness; Chisel Jersey apples insert a genius spark of bitter accents. Bordeaux and Brandy leave the strongest imprint on the effervescent body, each lending a buttery oak richness that stretches long across the palate. However, after a glass or two the crisp, apple soaked skin of Bourbon arrives like a sweet, boozy Hallelujah.
A sophisticated cider of this high caliber is usually reserved for big bang celebrations split amongst a crowd but you want more than a measly pour of this masterpiece – the profound intricacies of Batch No. 1 deserve to be savored solo.
