Lincoln’s only cidery has won its first major national award.
Saro Cider recently won Cidercraft Magazine’s 2019 Double Gold Award in the wood-aged category for its Marmara Cider.
The cider, named for one of the oldest cherry-producing regions in the world, combines tart cherries with Nebraska apple juice and native Nebraska yeast and is aged in whiskey barrels to give it balance between sweetness and dryness.
Saro, which opened last year at 1746 N St., is the second area cidery to win a national award.
Glacial Till Vineyard & Winery of Palmyra was named Grand National Champion at the U.S. Open Cider Championships in Buffalo, New York, last month.
