McLaughlin & Moran Adds Tapped Apple Brand

January 23, 2024 | The Beverage Journal

"The family-owned, Westerly-based Tapped Apple Cidery & Winery can now be found with state distributors McLaughlin & Moran, Inc. In 2003, John Wiedenheft III started making wine using 5-gallon carboys in his basement as a hobby, eventually using grapes from California and partnering with his son, John IV. In 2005, the pair began working with apples, adding supplemental ingredients such as cherries, elderberries and even hops to their homemade craft wines and ciders using local fruit grown in North Scituate. In 2017, the team created Tapped Apple Cidery & Winery and brought a tasting room to downtown Westerly, now serving Tapped Apple hard ciders and wines from seed to bushel to bottle."...

Customer's Review 

100/10!! I was visiting RI from out of town with my cousin and we decided to stop in. Tapped is located in the quaint downtown of Westerly and features a delicious selection of ciders. The servers are knowledgeable and will give you the run-down of the menu. Definitely do a flight before choosing one, the ciders we thought we'd like the least were our favorites. We were recommended the maple balsamic cider and it was unlike anything we've ever had- absolutely incredible. Don't let the balsamic deter you, I ended up taking an entire growler home with me. The apple pie wine was equally delicious and just like the maple balsamic cider- taste was right on par. The other aspect of Tapped that I love is their features of the local community. This was not only reflected in their ciders by using locally grown apples, but also in the art they have on the walls. Tapped is a true local gem and I look forward to watching this spot grow! (Hopefully to a location much closer to home for me ).
