Elderberry Apple Shots: How we make it

How We Make It

We gently press elderberries on the farm, and combine them with apple cider we boil on our wood-fired evaporator. Our elderberries do not undergo extreme heat, or extraction processes that involve chemicals or solvents.

Our Shots is unique farm product made in small batches. Slight variations do occur. These are due to soil and weather conditions, different harvesting times, and fruit or berry varieties that we grow and use. In fact, new research identified 10 different flavors present in the elderberry.

Free from the 8 major allergens: milk, eggs, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat, soybeans
