It’s Apple (Cider) Season!

It’s apple season, y’all! Across the south, the leaves are starting to turn, and orchard trees are heavy with fruit for the picking. Roadside stands are doling out fresh cider to passersby, both “soft” (non-alcoholic) and “hard” (yippee!). Here at TLP, we just received a sample of a hard apple cider that is making its debut in select markets, including Charleston.

Hard cider is basically fermented apples, so it’s natural and gluten-free (for those who can’t tolerate wheat-based beers). A fizzy, sweet, refreshing drink, it can be poured over ice or mixed into fruity cocktails. For a distributor near you, click on, and add a little zing to your fall sipping.
