Angry Orchard launches hard cider made with N.Y. apples

BY Gina Acosta

WALDEN, N.Y. — Angry Orchard, a popular brand of hard cider, is launching a new product made exclusively with apple varieties from New York State.

"We're extremely proud of Walden Hollow as it's our first cider made with apples from our own backyard," said Ryan Burk, Angry Orchard's head cider maker. "The mild tannins and dryness of the cider capture the diversity, complexity and depth of character from the blend of New York State apples. It's cider like Walden Hollow that inspires us to continue to drive innovation and reimagine what American cider can be."

Walden Hollow is fermented over many months, resulting in full flavor and intense apple aroma due to the high acidity and mild tannins from New York State heirloom apples. These heirloom varieties include Golden Russet, Newtown Pippin and Northern Spy, all of which have deep ties to the Empire State, including their use in cider dating back hundreds of years. Walden Hollow will be released annually in the spring, and made using a blend of New York apple varieties selected by Angry Orchard's cider makers based on the previous year's harvest. 

Walden Hollow (8% ABV) is the fourth style to join the Angry Orchard Cider House Collection of small batch craft ciders, and is available nationwide now. This style is available in 750 mL bottles for a suggested retail price of $14.99 – $17.99 (price varies per market).
