Buskey Cider is a stop on the new Virginia Cider Trail

Posted at 2:31 PM, Jul 06, 2022

RICHMOND, Va. -- Today, the American Cider Association launched the Virginia Cider Trail. Twenty-nine cideries across the commonwealth are participating. It gives people the opportunity to learn what makes Virginia apples – and the cider made from them – so special.

All Virginians or visitors 21 and older can sign up for the mobile exclusive passport. Many of the participating cideries are offering unique deals and discounts that guests can redeem during visits.

Buskey Cider in Richmond’s Scott’s Addition neighborhood is one stop on the trail. Founder Will Correll spoke with us about his cidery and why people should consider taking to the trail!

The trail is a year-long offering that will run through June 25, 2023, and more cideries are expected to join throughout the year.

Visit the Cider Culture website for more information about the Virginia Cider Trail.
