Earth Week 2014!

Earth-Week-2014-blog-header

We here at Woodchuck® take great pride in crafting the highest quality cider in the land.  One of the key parts of that last sentence is “the land”.  Without a healthy earth, apples won’t grow, and without apples there is no Woodchuck.

We have worked hard to keep an eye on the environment as we have grown over the last 23 years.  We were one of the first to change our packaging to recycled material.  We also continue to work on bringing more renewable energy into our power portfolio.  We’ll talk more about this as the week goes on, but first we want to let you know about our Woodchuck Earth Week 2014!

Happy National Grilled Cheese Day!

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!

10 Things You May Not Know About Mint

4_4_2014_Mint_10Things_1

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.
