Nine Pin Cider Works crafts its award winning New York Hard Cider from farm to glass to ensure that their high standards are always met.
The process begins just outside of Albany, where they work with the best local apple growers to achieve just the right blend of apples. Nine Pin Cider Works also use unique apples grown from seed on their family farm. The special blend is the building block for Nine Pin’s crisp, refreshing taste.
The apples are pressed at the orchard and the juice transported to their cidery in the heart of Albany. At the cidery, the fresh pressed juice undergoes Nine Pin Cider Works signature fermenting and aging process. Once the cider has been aged to standards, it is packaged into kegs and bottles and then poured into your glass.
