Get to Know Your Cider Maker – Stephen Schuurman

Posted by on November 13, 2012

Are you familiar with Winchester Ciderworks? Neither are we! But we’ll need to be. They’re yet another new entrant in the world of Virginia craft ciders. This is Cider Week, so here’s cidermaker Stephen Schuurman:

Where did you grow up?

I was born in Beccles, Suffolk England and lived there all my life until I left there aged 39.

How long have you lived in Virginia?

I have lived in the Winchester area since 2004.

What brought you to cider?

I have always loved drinking cider and as it is a traditional English drink which I missed greatly since moving here, I thought I would become involved in making it.

How long have you been making cider?

We will be making our first batch for retail sale in November 2012. We have been making test batches for over a year and doing many bench trials.

Where else (besides your current cidery) have you made cider?

I have yet to make cider in a professional capacity. I have helped winemakers and have made wine myself so this is a natural progression of that.

What characteristics do you enjoy in cider?

I enjoy the more fragrant style of cider which would be found in my area of the country the Eastern Counties as characterized by Aspall’s Cyder.

Since many in VA are new to tasting ciders, what should they be looking for when trying your cider for the first time?

People should be looking for a balanced style of acidity and sugars with a good fruit flavor profile.

If you could visit with any cider maker in the world, who/where would it be?

I have been luckily enough to meet him! Henry Chevalier of Aspall’s Cyder in Suffolk, England.

What is your favorite food and cider pairing?

I am a great lover of Indian cuisine and back in England in the many Curry Houses of the nation, cider is the drink of choice. The spices of Indian food pair exceptionally well with varying types of cider.

Who is your favorite cartoon character?

Eric Cartman ( South Park )

What is one thing we haven’t asked you that you want Virginia cider fans to know about you or your cidery?

That we use apples from our orchards in the State of Virginia and hopefully will continue to do so.

If you could buy any one item from SkyMall, what would it be?

A Hammock!

    Hello Chubby Chops !
    I’ve looked at your picture and read your interview – it sounds like life is very good ;-)
    Nice one !
    We are all well – Jacqui still busy and my son unfortunately looking like me, poor lad !
    Cider eh? Isn’t that what we all used to drink at break neck speed to get wasted as fast as we could when we were 15 in the good old days !!! You don’t mention that in your interview, ha ha!
    Hope this finds you well……and that you are bringing your wine skills to the cider trade?
    Ady xx
