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.
