Woodchuck Hard Cider

Posted March 21, 2013 by in Food


Cider is becoming an increasingly popular alcoholic drink. It’s an alternative to your regular form of beer that offers a sweeter taste and more distinction. One of the best brands of cider out there is Woodchuck Hard Cider. Throughout the past few years, the brand has become the top-selling cider in the United States, making up 47% of the hard cider market in the country. There’s good reason for that, as Woodchuck Hard Cider is an amazing and delicious choice in cider beer.

The company is based in Middlebury, Vermont. Here, the meticulous process of handcrafting their cider takes place. They offer a wide variety of distinctive flavors. Their Core Styles are the most prevalent and popular. These include Amber, Granny Smith, 802 Dark and Dry, Crisp, Pear, and Raspberry. I, myself, have tried both the Amber and Granny Smith styles and was not disappointed. As mentioned before, there is a certain sweetness to Woodchuck Hard Cider that I think is its biggest draw. You can hardly taste the alcohol. It tastes more like a mix of apple juice and soda.

As all these flavors are so great, it can be hard to choose just one. That is why the company offers a special Variety Pack, equipped with 3 bottles of Amber, Granny Smith, and 802 Dark and Dry, in addition to one bottle that is the Craft Maker’s Choice. This mystery bottle will be either one of the Core Styles or one of their Limited Releases. There are four Limited Releases that correlate with the seasons: Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter. Each one’s taste is supposed to give you the feel of the respective season, from the cinnamon and nutmeg in the Fall cider to the maple syrup and brown sugar in the Spring style.

Woodchuck Hard Cider is doing very well these days. Not only are they the top-selling cider in the country, but they were recently bought by an Irish cider company. Here’s an article about the business deal:
