This is a bone dry and complex cider, bottle fermented and conditioned. It’s funky and slightly cloudy yet crisp. Because it is bottle conditioned, there are lees in the bottle and its character will evolve as it ages. At first, crisp apple skin notes will be prominent. Over time, gorganzola dolce and baked apple notes emerge. The nuances that unfold are part of what makes this such a special cider.

Orchard Hill Cider Mill was inspired by our love of the great cider regions of Europe. We wondered why New York, which has one of the premier climates for apples, wasn't bursting with world class cider, brandy and pommeau producers. It was just a small step from that inspiring thought to the creation of our estate cider mill in the Hudson Valley.
