Maple Run Emporium Presents Holiday Hard Cider Tasting with Kaneb Orchards on December 12


POTSDAM, NY – December 4, 2015 – Maple Run Emporium at 49 Market Street in Potsdam, will host Kaneb Orchards of Massena for a Holiday Hard Cider Tasting on Saturday, December 12, from noon to 3:00pm.


Kaneb Orchard ciders are handcrafted with apples picked from their orchard in Massena and bottled in small batches in their cider house.


At the Holiday Tasting, Kaneb Orchards will offer three varieties to sample - St. Lawrence Cider, Cranberry Crisp Cider, and Raquette River Cider.


St. Lawrence Cider is a clear, crisp, sparkling cider with full apple flavor. It is refreshing and medium sweet. Awarded Best Craft Cider 2014 by NY Wine & Grape Foundation.


Cranberry Crisp Cider is a blend of St. Lawrence Cider and 100% cranberry juice made from locally grown cranberries. Great apple taste upfront with a little tartness to finish.


Raquette River Cider is a medium dry cider with full body apple notes upfront and a dry finish. Smooth and hardy, it is a classic traditional cider.


“These ciders pair exceptionally well with traditional holiday turkey and ham dinners,” noted Mary Hilton, Maple Run Emporium owner. “They’re also super for holiday entertaining with hors d'oeuvres, especially cheeses and crackers. And they are a great addition to a gift basket. I am really pleased to host Kaneb Orchards and offer this opportunity for people to try the ciders. It will be a fun and festive event in the shop.”


Maple Run Emporium offers the Kaneb Orchards ciders in 750ml bottles and two-bottle boxed gift sets.


In December, Maple Run Emporium, 49 Market Street, Potsdam, is open every day, 10:00 am to 6:00 pm. (315) 274-0102.,
