Tasting Notes

A sharp, dry cider of Traminette grape and apple. Complex, with a creamy texture and focused apple personality, this cider is best served chilled. Aaron Burr Cidery, located in Wurtsboro in New York's Hudson Valley, is a small, homestead farm, dating back to the early 19th century. Their goal is to re-create "true cider," which was once the most popular drink in America.

Staff Pick Notes

This tiny operation run by husband-and-wife team Andy and Polly Brennan has recently been faced with more demand for their product than they can accommodate. You can find them featured on the prestigious wine lists of Eleven Madison Park and Gramercy Tavern. The Appinette is a blend of 30% Finger Lakes Traminette and 70% New York apples, with bright citrus notes and a clean, refreshing palate. A delicious cider to drink year round as an apéritif or paired with a cheese course. This "true cider" is a must-try from a devoted producer.
