…Urban Orchard Cider Co. and The Hop have teamed up to create a cider-spiked line of frozen treats. The rotating selection of adult-only ice pops, sorbets and ice creams will be made at the The Hop’s Haywood Road production facility and sold at Urban Orchard’s West Asheville cidery.
The cidery’s freezer is stocked with a vegan ginger-Champagne sorbet plus ice pops and sorbets made with Urban Orchard’s recently released Tangerine Turnpike flavor, which was created using honey from Asheville Bee Charmer and lavender.
Because local, seasonal ingredients heavily influence Urban Orchard’s rotating menu of ciders, the selection of derivative treats will vary. Anderson expects a berry cider soon, as well as a watermelon variety for the Fourth of July.
“We’re excited to see what the summer looks like,” Anderson says. “We’ve got a few other things up our sleeve, [and] we’re going to hopefully add to the fun Asheville vibe.”
