Wilmington Brew Works does Cider Collaboration with Hagley

At one time, the du Pont family had an orchard of nearly 400 tree varieties on grounds that are now part of Hagley Museum & Library. Fifty of those varieties still grow in that orchard and the fruit is now being used by Wilmington Brew Works to produce a new line of cider, The Fruits of Eleutherian Mills. The limited run has been available at WBW since late July in 22-ounce bottles and on tap and the intention is to have the cider available at future Hagley events. Visitors to Hagley can explore the E.I. du Pont Garden and stroll down the orchard meadow pathway where the Montmorency and Black Tartarian cherry trees are found.
