Join the Rhode Island Historical Society and Sowams Cider Works, on Saturday, September 24 at 1 p.m. for the continuation of Drink in the History, a year-long series pairing RI beverages with history talks.
The program will be hosted at the Sowams Cider Works where guests will have the opportunity to explore the creation of traditional ciders using heritage varietals of apples. Proprietor Spencer Morris will guide participants through his orchard, offering insights into the process of selecting and growing heritage apple varietals meant for the creation of cider. Guests will then return to the tasting room to sample four selections of hard cider created using varietals native to Rhode Island and enjoy a sampling of cheese.
Tickets are $35 for RIHS members and $40 for non-members and can be purchased at rihs.org.
Please note that participants will need to drive approximately six minutes between the orchard and the tasting room. Those wishing to take part in the tour of the orchard should be prepared for uneven terrain and dress appropriately with suitable footwear.
