Time sure does fly! Woodchuck® Private Reserve Pumpkin has been an autumn staple for 5 years now. Highly sought out by our fans, we’ve had loyal patrons drive up to 8 hours to come get cases of this seasonal release. We’ve given the packaging a makeover, but it is still the fresh, rich, natural pumpkin taste you remember from years previous. Since it’s our five year anniversary release, we thought we’d take a look back to our very first release! Back in 2010, our cider makers went into the cellar to create this new Private Reserve with a Pumpkin, knife, and their bare hands. Check it out…

The Finishing Touches

IMG_5381edited

It’s hard to believe that after four years of plotting and planning, our new cidery is finally open to the public.  It has been quite a thrill to see fans walk through the doors of the Cider House and have a space to sample cider while learning all there is to know about Woodchuck®.

It took 15 months to complete construction.  One of the reasons why: most everything in the cidery was handcrafted.  From the cider tanks to the bottling line to the cider house timber frames, everything was constructed with the utmost care and used the finest materials we could find.  45 different Vermont companies were contracted to help us build what we think is the finest cidery in the United States.
