Introducing Woodchuck GUMPTION!

February 17, 2015
Gumption Step Right up

You might call it audacity, or you might call it courage. Here at the Woodchuck® cidery, we call it Gumption. Twenty-four years ago, we had the Gumption to ignite the comeback of the American craft cider industry. We’ve had the Gumption to push the limits of innovation and infuse the CRAZIEST AND MOST AWESOME things into our ciders. (Chocolate? Mint? Hops? Oh, they’re just a few!) We continue to have the Gumption to go above and beyond for our devoted fans, and combine our own passion with that of theirs.

P.T. Barnum once noted, “everybody drank cider-spirits called ‘gumption’.” Well, as we celebrate the spirit of a legendary showman, let us clear our throats, raise the curtains, and bring attention to our greatest and boldest announcement yet…

Here at the cidery, we had the Gumption to pair the fresh juice of common eating apples with dry European bittersweet cider apples. This refreshing and traditional cider, with no added flavors, will bring you a bold and unique drinking experience that combines both the American craft innovation with the tradition of European cider. Those looking for a cider that is not too sweet and one you can enjoy over and over again, look no further. At 5.5% ABV, Gumption has a fresh apple aroma with a sweet apple taste upfront and a dry finish.  For our final act… this style will be available year-round and nationwide! Gumption will complement any of your adventures as you follow your own path. Step right up!
