Angry Orchard Makes New Hard Cider with NY Apples


Angry Orchard today announced the release of its new year-round specialty hard cider, Walden Hollow. This is the first cider from Angry Orchard to be made exclusively with apple varieties from New York State, including varieties from last year’s harvest at the Angry Orchard in New York’s Hudson Valley, and heirloom apples from other local orchards. Last fall, Angry Orchard opened the Angry Orchard Innovation Cider House on a 100-year-old apple orchard in Walden, NY – the namesake for this new cider.

Walden Hollow is fermented over many months, using the heirloom varieties including 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 is 8% ABV and now available nationwide. To learn more or find where Angry Orchard hard cider is available near you, visit the Angry Orchard website.
