Homestead Mamakating Hollow Cider

MADE BY AARON BURR CIDERY IN WURTSBORO, NEW YORK

MOUTH SAYS...

If you're already in love with cider, you'll be blown away by this breathtaking bottle. If you haven't been into cider, we promise that this is the one that will win you over! It's made only from apples, but there are hints of tart cherry and berry along with nutty wood tones.

This cider is part of Aaron Burr Cidery's Homestead series: For this Mamakating Hollow cider they fermented wild apples picked from forgotten apple trees in the woods and on abandoned properties near their home in Wurtsboro, New York. Often untouched for decades, these trees are the descendants of the earliest cider apples (think Johnny Appleseed!), the very ones that once made cider America's most popular beverage.

Aaron Burr's cider is made in tiny batches from unsprayed apples and is incredibly hard to find. They only made 96 cases of this one! We won't have it available for long, so grab a bottle while you can.

Hard cider was the original American beverage (it's basically all the colonial settlers drank!), and we're so excited that this delicious, historical beverage is suddenly popular again. We've tracked down the most incredible indie cider and perry on the market, all fermented from apples or pears using traditional techniques.

We love to drink this cider with dessert, especially fresh-baked pies and pastries.
