Letís hope that this is indicative of their intentions/efforts:

Hall: "Itís very important for us to get it right. Last fall we did 180 test batches using different apples and yeast strains to find a combination that tasted to me like an English cider. I donít know if weíll be able to match that next year--like wine, vintages of cider can vary based on the yearís apple crop. My goal is to make a delicious cider every year, not necessarily to make it exactly the same."

FYI, this cider has been around since almost the beginning of the year. He is making some pretty great cider thus far.

This cider is delicious and has been around for the past 6 or so months on draft in Chicago.

Is there a reason for strictly "English" cider? Iíve never done a cider tour of England, but after a cider tour of Normandy, I donít know why that wouldnít be your starting off point for wickedly good cider.

Iím open to everything and have liked Etienne Dupont as a French cider, but after SilkTork took me on a tour of cider in the Southwest of England, Iím strongly partial to English cider.

This is where Mike should chime in about his cidre tours.
