Drink of the Week: Wandering Aengus Wickson Cider

Fall is in the air, and with today’s Drink of the Week—Wanering Aengus’ Wickson Cider—it’s in our glasses too. A single-variety cider crafted from pressed and fermented Wickson crabapples, this offering from Salem, Oregon’s Wandering Aengus is bright and assertive with tart lemon flavors, bright effervescence and a dry, salty tang on the finish. Look for it in specialty beer/wine/spirits shops and markets across the country. For more American craft ciders we love, check out “Apple of Our Eye” in the current September/October issue, and if your fall plans take you to the Big Apple, be sure to check out Cider Week, happening October 16-November 8 with cider tastings, workshops and pairings happening at locations throughout greater New York City. $10/500 ml.
