Red Label CiderMADE BY ORCHARD HILL CIDER MILL IN NEW HAMPTON, NEW YORK
Apple picking: Cozy sweaters, red wagons, biting into fruit straight from the tree. This outstanding cider is Fall in a bottle.
Red Label is fairly dry, with plenty of fresh-picked flavor and aroma from a field blend of Crispin, Idared, Empire, Spartan and McIntosh. We're big fans of its refreshing Prosecco-like carbonation, with fuzzy, warming bubbles.
Upstate New York is known for its thriving apple crops, and Orchard Hill is located at Soons Orchard, just one hour north of New York City. But no need to road trip – we're bringing it to you here.
did you know?
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.
tip of the tongue
This cider is made to age well. While new bottles taste more like the fresh fruit, aging it brings out a creamier texture with hints of baked apples and crumbly aged cheese.
7.25% alcohol by volume. Comes in a 750ml bottle.
