THE REVIEW

Released only once a year, we are unveiling this rare hard cider just in time for Thanksgiving. Much like the fleeting foliage, this cider will not be seen again until next year.
    Nothing symbolizes the Autumn season quite like the apple. Though wine often steals the show on Thanksgiving, we would be remiss if we didn't also enjoy one of the season's most traditional and beloved refreshments, apple cider.
    From upstate New York and just in time for Thanksgiving, we present Aaron Burr's Appinette Cider. Found in scarce amounts in the farm-to-table world, Aaron Burr's hard ciders are sophisticated with immense complexity.
    Unlike most ciders, Burr's Appinette bottling uses both New York State apples as well as a dash of locally grown Traminette (a dry white grape). This combination is simply outstanding.
    Made from 70% Orange County (NY) apples and 30% Finger Lake Traminette grape, this dry cider burst with autumn leaf aromas. Amber in color, it has mild carbonation with a hint of grapefruit and earth. Salty minerals, delicate fruit, and bright acidity makes it a highly sought after cider for foodies.
    Whether you are enjoying this extremely limited beauty before, during or after your Thanksgiving feast, watching the game or saving some for the balance of the Christmas/New Year season, nothing says its holiday time like the apple! Read More »
