Some of our favorites that are currently in production or seasonal. Check back weekly to see if they return to our tap list!
Ashmeads Kernel, Single-Varietal
A golden straw colored cider with light carbonation. Aromatics of cherry and turmeric up front, compounded by a slight minerality and spice.
A blend of dessert apples fermented to dry with an ale yeast. This cider is clear and dry to the bone. Bone Dry serves as a straightforward variety with its clarity and crisp finish. Are we clear? Crystal.
A true Single Varietal cider made from 100% Yarlington Mill apples. Yarlington Mill apples originated in the English village of Yarlington. This cider is astringent with good flavor and aroma, making a quality vintage cider.
Dry cider. Made with a blend of bittersweet, bittersharp and culinary apples sourced from growers throughout New York State. IT changes year to year depending on what apples we source and from which orchards!
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!
Dry with soft tannin. Fruity, smooth & balanced
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.
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”
Fermented with a “citra” yeast designed specifically for Cider Making. This yeast is meant to enhance the citrus notes of a cider, resulting in a cider with higher acid and some lemony tart-ness.
Made from all Ida Red apples! We have a lot of these trees in the Cidery Orchard, so it only made sense to make a cider out of all Ida Red apples. A dry, tart cider. The closest to a “sour” that we have.
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.
Made from a blend of apples from the Cornell University orchards off of the Cornell campus. Paying homage to SJ’s alma mater. Crisp apple taste and finishes with a hint of cherry. It even has a slight red tint to really stand out!
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.
Newtown Pippin, Single-Varietal
A new single varietal cider made with all Newtown Pippin apples. This cider is fermented to dry and has a tart, green apple 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!
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!
Johnny’s Gold Standard
This cider uses only golden apples grown on the farm! We pressed Gold Rush, Jona Golds, Golden Delicious, and a few others. Fermented to dry, then sweetened a little on the backside. A very crisp, and apple forward cider. We think Johnny Appleseed would approve.
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!
Not your typical Pumpkin! Our Pumpkin cider is fermented to dry and back sweetened with a Pumpkin Syrup made from sugar pumpkins grown and harvested on Pennings Farm. It is a little sweet and lightly spiced to make for a refreshing pumpkin flavored cider.
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!
Speculaas Dutch Cookie
Our winter seasonal cider flavored with spices that remind us of our favorite childhood treat, the Dutch Speculaas cookie (just like Grandma Pennings used to make!) Fermented to dry and back sweetened with almond, cinnamon, nutmeg, and brown sugar. Contains Nuts!
