Tai In Cider Onnie O'Leary Edition
No it's not from the Cayman Islands, and no, Charles Dickens didn't make it either...
Built to Spill Wine is proud to present:
TAI ON/IN CIDER
A project I put together in the spirit of community and good times, when our communities seem so distant, and the good times just aren't the same!
The first part of this project: The juice. I got in touch with the beautiful people that made up Adam's Evening Cider Co. who produced this dry, pet nat style bottle of froffilicous goodness. It is made up of majority apple, with a dash of pear. It is cloudy, crunchy, fresh and ULTRA-CRUSHABLE. Notes of embarrassed kumquat, and frisky grannysmith for sure.
The second part of this project was sourcing some suitable art. I did not have to look far for talented artists. I got in touch with local Sydney tattoo professionals, who I am also lucky enough to call close friends. In a pandemic tattooing is pretty bloody hard to do safely, and impossible in a lockdown! I wanted to share the love by commissioning these legends to get wild with these labels, but also by shining a light on other hustles they have going on right now to get by. From chainmaile and jewellery to merch and marble masonry. A real talented bunch, so much love for y'all!
Until I can swirl with you all in person again, here is a toast to looking after each other, keeping safe and sane, and finding some time to laugh, hell knows we need it.
