For longtime Woodchuck fans Greg Failing is a name you may already be familiar with, but for those who are not, let us introduce him. Greg is our Master Cider Maker here at Woodchuck® Hard Cider. He’s been here since the beginning, and when we say “the beginning” we mean the very beginning. Greg is the guy responsible for our flagship style, Woodchuck® Amber Cider and we’re happy to tell you all about him.
Vermont has been our home since the beginning. Twenty-two years ago Master Cider Maker, Greg Failing, produced the very first batch of Amber Cider that has put Woodchuck® Hard Cider on the map nationwide, all from a two-car garage in the tiny town of Proctorsville, Vermont. Our dedication and deep appreciation for our home state are the pillars of our business, and today we are beaming with pride to tell you that we have officially broken ground on our brand new cidery here in Middlebury, Vermont. As a reader of The Core, you all get first glimpse at how the new cidery will look!
