The champagne apple, unique to Dixon’s Apple Orchard, has been transformed into a hard cider at Number 12 Cider located in Minneapolis, MN, and is on tap as long as supply lasts!
The cider was named after “Fred Dixon”, current owner Becky Mullane’s grandfather. Fred Dixon discovered and first grew the champagne apple in New Mexico. The Mullane’s moved their orchard to Wisconsin in 2015 after fires and floods wiped out most of their crop in New Mexico.
“The champagne apple had such a following from our buyers in New Mexico. We are so excited to start sharing the taste this year through the cider at Number 12 Cider, and we look forward to sharing it with the Chippewa Valley soon! Carrying on the legacy of my grandfather has been incredibly special to my family. We can’t wait to see what the future holds,” noted Becky.
