Buskey Cider Wins Gold Medal at 2023 Virginia Governor’s Cup

RICHMOND, Va. - February 6, 2022 - Buskey Cider won a gold medal for their Hewe’s Crab Apple Cider for the Governor’s Cup.  

The Buskey Hewe’s Crab Apple Cider was made with 100% Virginia grown hewe’s crab apples. This single varietal cider boasts floral notes, evoking grapefruit peel, pear, and strawberry. Fermented to completely dry and aged on its lees for six months. It’s available on draft and in 500ml bottles in their cidery in Scott’s Addition and their tasting room in Cape Charles.

"Hewe’s Crab is Virginia’s most historic apple so it’s incredibly special to have this cider win top marks," said Will. "It's a testament to our commitment to quality and the hard work of our team. We're thrilled to have our ciders among the best in the state."

Buskey Cider was an early mover in the Scott’s Addition neighborhood in Richmond, Virginia and helped turn it into the famous craft alcohol neighborhood it is today.

Opened in 2016 in the popular craft alcohol neighborhood of Scott’s Addition in Richmond, Virginia. The cidery was founded by Will Correll, who started making cider out of his dorm room a decade ago at Hampden-Sydney College before opening the operation in Richmond in 2016. Part of the open was a negotiated purchase option for their building which they exercised last February.

Buskey Cider was an early mover in home delivery during covid by launching a new ecommerce website and continues to deliver to parts of Virginia. They home deliver their cider to RVA, Hampton Roads, and NOVA, and they are available in distribution to bars and restaurants across the state. The cidery also opened a tasting room in Cape Charles in 2018 to expand their reach to this small, charming town on Virginia’s Eastern Shore.
