Private Reserve Cherry

Good things come to those that wait…

…and trust us. Patience is a well-rewarded virtue in this case.

Back in 2011, our Cider Makers introduced a seasonal staple that changed the game. Private Reserve Barrel Select was aged in bourbon barrels for six months, pulling gentle notes of oak and vanilla that balanced perfectly over a crisp apple background. The time and dedication proved worthy as Barrel Select became one of Woodchuck’s most sought out craft ciders. Naturally, the method was one to replicate…

Introducing Woodchuck® Private Reserve Cherry!filling-barrelsPrivate Reserve Cherry ignites a new barrel aged series within the Woodchuck family. Our small batch hard cider was infused with the juice of Michigan cherries, then (as I’m sure you guessed!) barrel aged. However instead of heading down to bourbon country, we traveled out west. From the hills of the Napa Valley, our Cider Makers aged the infused cider in the finest Cabernet Sauvignon barrels. Sweet and tart with notes of smooth oak, this premium craft will truly delight your senses.cherriesCherry will be the first of three high end barrel-aged ciders that will make up the series (stay tuned for more info on our other styles). Available seasonally from March – July, you won’t want to pass on this limited 6-pack when you see it on shelves.

This quality craft is still working its way in the market, but find it near you with our online locator!
