It is always a pleasure to be invited to the Bottlehouse in the Madrona neighborhood of Seattle. The garden is lovely, the music perfect and the cheesemonger is the best. TCW arrived for a tasting one lovely summer day, and these were the cheeses they had paired to our ciders. All were lovely.

1. Blossom Nectar  Cider– Pave de Jadis – a wonderful fudgy texture with a clean mild flavor with hints of lemon and minerals.

2. Cherry Cider– Abbaye de Belloque w/ Black Cherry Compote - A French Pyrenees sheep's milk cheese.

3. Wild Washington Apple Cider – Midnight Moon Gouda from Cypress Grove- a nutty and brown buttery up front with a long caramel finish.
