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.
Today, the Woodchuck Cidery opens its doors! As we cut the ribbon and pour the first pint, our President and CEO, Dan Rowell offers a few words as he welcomes all friends, family, and fans to our new home.
The Woodchuck® cider makers have gone into the cellar once again and handcrafted Woodchuck Cellar Series Ginger. The style was first made popular as part of our Private Reserve Line in 2012 before going back into the cellar to be tweaked, matured, and perfected. Something that never changed though was Woodchuck fans calling for its return!
Woodchuck Ginger is a craft cider that is a perfect fit for the summer season, so we figured what better time than NOW to release it back into the wild. It brings together crisp culinary apple varieties with the subtle spice of organic ginger root.
