We have long worked to craft great cider. Since 1991 in fact. The liquid inside the bottle has always been of the upmost importance; fancy marketing campaigns and flashy gimmicks just aren’t our style. You could say we just don’t give a ‘chuck about all that big brand mass-market noise.
We here in the Green Mountains of Vermont DO Give a ‘Chuck™ about authenticity. We Give a ‘Chuck about handcrafted cider made in a real cidery, not in a mass-market brewery. We Give a ‘Chuck about our local community and farmers, about our fanatical Woodchuck® fans, and about making sure every bottle that leaves our cidery is of the highest possible quality.
It’s National Grilled Cheese Day! A day to celebrate the beloved combination of bread, cheese, and whatever delicious extras you put on that toasty sandwich. Here at Woodchuck, there’s a combination we still find hard to beat… cheese and apples.
On an occasion such as this, we couldn’t help but call over to our friends at Cabot Creamery. As they have been making award winning cheddar cheese & other dairy products since 1919, we knew they must be the experts in the grilled cheese category.
Cabot pointed us in the right direction with their Sun dried Tomato & Sausage Grilled Cheese. Using their Extra Sharp Cheddar, sun dried tomatoes, and smoked sausage, we knew exactly what to pair it with; our Woodchuck Amber 16 oz. Cans.
Now available nation-wide, these Amber cider 4-packs are easy to grab, and perfect for on-the-go. A convenience store gem, the Amber tallboys give you even more of that same great taste. Ready to make this holiday epic? First, find your Woodchuck Amber 16 oz. Cans here then follow this great recipe from Cabot, and cheers!
This winter was a long one. A lot of ice, a lot of snow, and a lot of low (and we mean looooowwww) temperatures. Yes, the white landscapes were beautiful, but are we ready for what’s next? You got that right! As the season transitions, our hyper-active senses are picking up any hint of the warmer weather. The sights, the sounds, the CIDER. TheWoodchuck® Limited Release Summer Cider is a tart and flavorful style with a rich taste reminiscent of New England blueberries. And now…
The Cider Makers here at Woodchuck are at it again. Their innovative craft and masterful techniques have brought us the next style in our Cellar Series line. We’re excited to announce the Woodchuck Cellar Series Mint Cider!
Woodchuck Cellar Series Mint is handcrafted from fresh Vermont McIntosh and Irish bittersweet apples. The blend of varieties allows a full apple flavor to remain at the forefront of this unique cider. The twist turns up in the form of mint. Whole spearmint leaves are added to the tank a week before bottling. Spearmint oils slowly permeate the tank, leaving a subtle mint note to this unique marriage of apples from Vermont and Ireland.
As we add another exciting style to the Woodchuck family, we thought we would take a closer look at the mint leaf. The organic mint leaves we used in this craft cider were sourced through our friends at Black River Produce here in Vermont. Let’s take a dive into this awesome ingredient, with a list of 10 things you may not know about Mint.
The winter thaw is on the horizon, and sugaring season will shift into full gear. Not only will our Vermont landscapes transform into iconic scenes of buckets and tap lines, but it’s time for sugar on snow! Regardless of where you’re watching that sap boil, there’s nothing like the taste of fresh syrup drizzled on Winter’s remaining snow blanket. As we say Hello to spring in the cidery, we’re excited to embrace this tradition with our own twist….
