Some of our favorites that are currently in production or seasonal. Check back weekly to see if they return to our tap list!
Rhode Island Greening, Single-Varietal
A citrusy, tangy cider fueled by an American heirloom apple (Rhode Island Greening) historically used for fresh and hard cider. We are beginning to graft this apple variety onto trees in our Orchard!
A sharp, dry cider fermented from a blend of apple varieties, predominantly Piñata apples. Notes of pineapple and citrus lead the profile of this tropical cider.
A tart, dry cider full of apple aroma & flavor. From another American heirloom apple, the Baldwin.
An apple that originated in New Zealand, but has been accepted with open arms at Pennings! We couldn’t pass up the opportunity to make a single varietal cider using these apples. They gave us a delicious dry and citrusy cider, containing strong notes of grapefruit.
Fermented from heirloom apples with a white wine yeast rather than an ale yeast, this cider drinks very citrusy and “green”, like Portuguese “Vinho Verde”
A tribute to a beloved tree on the farm, taken down the spring of 2018 by wind after over 200 years rooted on top of the property. This cider had a small amount of ML fermentation which makes sharp acids into soft acids, this cider is just the kind of libation we’d share up at Home Tree.
This cider is fermented and flavored with our very own peaches in the mix. Lookout Georgia peaches, Warwick, NY peaches are comin’ for ya!
Fermented with our own pumpkins and back sweetened with a hint of sugar & spices. Tastes like fall in a glass!
This is a blend of apples supplied to us by SJ’s old professor at his alma mater. Up there in Trumansburg NY Dr. Merwin grows and produces some excellent cider at Black Diamond Farms. This blend is a mix of heirloom varietals and English bitter sharps and bittersweets that provide a citrusy nose and a smooth finish. It’s also got a nice gentle astringency from the tannins of those bitter sharps!
Gold Rush, Single-Varietal
Crafted from solely Gold Rush Apples. These guys are similar to a Granny Smith but slightly more acidic giving the cider a tarter taste.
Golden Russet, Single-Varietal
Fermented solely from the Golden Russet apple. An apple packed with sugar (alc. potential), and interesting flavor! Notes of spices, and cooked fruit. Not our own this year but another variety we have planted on our farm specifically for cider. Careful, Big Russ don’t mess around!
A cross between a mead and a cider-this Cyser uses about a gallon of Sweet Things, Wild Thyme honey right from the farm for every 15 gallons of cider to be co-fermented into a beautifully crisp, refreshing drink with a little more punch!
Northern Spy, Single-Varietal
This cider is produced solely from Northern Spy apples. Fairly low acid, this cider is fermented very close to dry, and drinks very smooth. 007 kind of smooth.
“Wild Man” named after a long time and deeply loved employee is the product of a natural fermentation with wild yeast. Taste a little different than the last batch of wild man? That’s because each batch is a little different and a little wild!
Impressive, you guessed it. Raspberries and honey! We ferment a base cider to dry, and flavor this cider on the back end with a NYS raspberry syrup produced in Hudson, NY, and honey from Sweet Things and Wild Thyme beehives that pollinated the apples that made this cider. Enjoy this full circle, a fruity fountain of flavor!
Available in a 4-pack of 16 oz. cans
A semi-sweet cider flavored with the same spices that go into a dutch speculaas cookie (just like Grandma Pennings used to make!) – cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, ginger, cardamom and almond extract. Contains Nuts!
