Angry Orchard Hard Cider has been exploring different apple varieties and crafting ciders for 20 years, and we are excited to greatly expand that experimentation at our very own orchard in Walden, NY, located in the heart of the Hudson Valley.
Located in the heart of the Hudson Valley in Walden, NY, our orchard has a rich apple growing history. Angry Orchard is committed to bringing traditional cider varieties and lost heirloom varieties back to the United States. As such, certain areas of the orchard are designated for new cider apple plantings and varietal research, in collaboration with local institutions and growers.
At our Innovation Cider House in Walden, we put our own twist on traditional ciders and are constantly experimenting with new processes and techniques. Our goal is to develop interesting new styles for tasting on-site – some of which could eventually join our family of ciders that are available beyond the Hudson Valley. – See more at: http://www.angryorchard.com/our-orchard/about-our-innovation-cider-house#sthash.CjgFHBL5.dpuf
Hard Cider Selections From Angry Orchard
- Crisp Apple
Angry Orchard Crisp Apple has a bright, crisp apple flavor, just like biting into a fresh apple. It is a perfect balance of sweetness and bright acidity from culinary apples and dryness of traditional cider making apples, resulting in a complex, yet refreshing, hard cider.
- Green Apple
Angry Orchard Green Apple has a bright, fresh apple aroma, with notes of honeydew melon and kiwi. This cider is slightly tart with balanced sweetness, reminiscent of a fresh green apple.
- Stone Dry
Angry Orchard Stone Dry – the driest cider in Angry Orchard’s core collection – is our twist on traditional English dry ciders. This cider balances the acidity of culinary apples with the tannins of traditional cider making apples, for a cider that is clean, refreshing, and slightly puckering on the finish.
- Hop’n Mad Apple
Hop’n Mad Apple’s bright, juicy apple flavor is complemented by floral notes from the Strisselspalt hops and tropical notes from the Galaxy hops. These hops are added to the cider post-fermentation, a process known as “dry hopping” in craft beer, giving it a fresh hop aroma and pleasant dry finish, without the bitterness.
- Apple Ginger
Angry Orchard Apple Ginger features a unique blend of ginger, spice and apple notes. This smooth and refreshing cider has a juicy apple taste with a slight floral background and warming finish.
- Cinnful Apple
Angry Orchard Cinnful Apple is sweet with a slight heat. The juicy apple notes are complemented by cinnamon spice for a cider that is refreshing and smooth, yet warming. It’s the perfect choice for the colder months and holiday drinking occasions ahead.
- Summer Honey
Angry Orchard Summer Honey is light and refreshing with a fruit-forward apple taste. Made with a touch of wildflower honey, this seasonal cider is bright and not overly sweet. It’s the perfect choice for warmer months.
