Vander Mill Ciders now available in Ohio

vander mill ciderI don’t give a damn for the whole state of Michigan, or at least I didn’t, until I tasted Vander Mill’s Totally Roasted hard cider.

I wrote a glowing review of Vander Mill’s ciders a year ago, but since they weren’t available in Ohio at the time, the article didn’t make it on Drink Up – until now, since Vander Mill is now being distributed in the Buckeye State! Rejoice.

Nothing complements turning leaves and Indian Summer more than a crisp pour of hard apple cider, especially when every 30 gallon batch is brewed with FOUR POUNDS of homemade cinnamon roasted pecans. Finished with fresh vanilla beans, Totally Roasted is a win-and-a-half. It’s dry enough that I could easily finish off a 750 ml bottle, but it is full-bodied, well rounded and flavorful. I couldn’t pin point the taste of pecans had I not known they were part of the recipe, but the taste is definitely there, and the vanilla and cinnamon is there from start to finish with every sip. It finishes crisp, leaving a pleasant taste in your mouth- it’s like the relationship I’ve never had; it fails to fail.

And Vander Mill refuses to quit. I followed my bottle of Totally Roasted with a pint of their original hard cider, and it delivered. Totally Roasted seemed like a hard act to follow, but it should come as no surprise that the foundation for the aforementioned brew shares many quality traits.

To start, Vander Mill will only be distributed to Ohio in kegs, with bottles and cans planned to arrive early next year. Pies and Pints in Worthington will be doing a tap takeover on October 3rd, Gallos Tap Room will be featuring a rotating Vander Mill line all week, and The Pint House will host a tap takeover on October 9th.
