About Botanist & Barrel:
Botanist & Barrel crafts a variety of ciders, sours and dry fruit wines. Using techniques from wine-making, brewing, and mixology they are constantly blurring the lines. They are Orange County’s first winery and cidery, situated just north of Hillsborough, on Cedar Grove Blueberry Farm. They are also farmers raising organic blueberries on Cedar Grove Blueberry Farm, where the winery/cidery is located. The farm is certified organic and dry farms for the best estate grown fruit on earth.
Founded in 2017 by brother and sister team and Orange County natives, Lyndon and Kether Smith focus on light-handed winemaking using old world methods with modern sensibilities. They lean towards whole fruit fermentation and make natural beverages with no additives or forced carbonation. The ciders and wines are raw, wild, unfined, unfiltered, unpasteurized and mostly still. They age in everything from tequila barrels, to sea salt bourbon barrels, to rum, to sauternes, to tawny port to bourbon maple syrup barrels.
