THAT’S SOME GOOD SHIP
Y’all. The humidity has arrived. Memorial Day weekend is usually a friendly reminder of what is to come – humidity’s best friend, the Charleston summer heat. Before it arrives, we are sharing our favorite adult beverage to beat the heat.
We’d like to introduce y’all to our summer heat savior – Ship’s Wheel Hard Cider. Not only is this drink delicious, but those behind Ship’s Wheel are special to us. Ian was first introduced to Ship’s Wheel when a previous co-worker gave him a taste of their family’s newly owned and operated craft cider. Michael, on the other hand, has always hated cider. Ship’s Wheel launched with an event at a local favorite of ours, Kudu, and his opinions on cider were changed forever. We have enjoyed watching this thirst-quenching cider flourish.
Why did Michael’s opinion on cider change? Because the family behind Ship’s Wheel is obsessed with making the good stuff. They use the highest quality heritage apples, which are then pressed, fermented, and bottled on an orchard for the freshest cider to ever hit your tastebuds. You won’t find sugary concentrate, but instead a completely gluten-free, pure, and balanced flavor straight from the orchard.
WHAT WE LOVE FOR YOU
