what could she do with a good hard cider? I have tried and enjoyed a few hard ciders, but usually think that one is enough. They are just a little too sweet for me. But, I have now tasted Original Sin. And I loved it. Light, refreshing, appley effervescence. I was as intrigued by the story as the cider. I spoke with the founder, Gidon Coll, during a recent tasting at Central Market in Austin. His family’s farm, located in upstate New York, went out of business twenty years ago. Instead of giving up, he used this as an opportunity to change gears and start growing apples and producing cider. Educated at Cornell’s School of Agriculture, he enlisted the help of a local winemaker and, after much trial and feedback, Original Sin was born. Can you think of a better name for hard cider? Another product he let me sample was a Newton Pippin Single Heirloom Varietal Cider. The Newton Pippin was a favorite of our founding fathers and makes a brilliant cider. Hoping to indulge in Original Sin? Their website has a list of distributers…and you won’t even have to go to confession.
