Tandem Ciders’ Clear Conscience

Bottoms Up
Sept. 17, 2022

If you haven’t visited Tandem Ciders’ Suttons Bay tasting room, you have not known the crisp, refreshing joy of a glass of Clear Conscience. Fear not—for the first time ever, the cider has been bottled and is on tap (hehe) to join Greenman and Smackintosh in the canned aisle at local grocery stores in the near future. Clear Conscience is everything you want in an easy-drinking, forever-sippable cider: It’s dry (only 0.1 percent residual sugar), a little tart, and packs plenty of flavor, thanks to a blend of traditional cider apples like Ida Red and McIntosh from VerSnyder Orchards that make this beauty stand out. Enjoy on one of these lingering summer days or save it for a fall harvest dinner with friends. Bottles are available for purchase at the tasting room, and you can also fill up a growler ($23) or howler ($14). Find it at 2055 N Setterbo Rd. in Suttons Bay.
