Light to medium bodied and dry, with notes of juicy red apple but from soft earthy notes, layers of fruit and spice, with hints of barnyard, with medium acid, a firm tannin grip and a clean subtle texture and an acid driven finish.

Aaron Burr Cidery has become the sought-after icon of local, traditional cider making. This small homestead farm dates back to the early 1800s and is located in Wurtsboro, NY, in the neighboring Sullivan County. Andy Brennan and Polly Giragosian are dedicated to making “true cider,” their main source of apples are those that they forage themselves around the Hudson Valley and Lower Catskills. From unsprayed, uncultivated apples foraged from the slopes above Summitville and the Sandburg Creek.
