Our Red Label Hard Cider originates from a field blend of Soons apples including Crispin, Idared, Empire, Spartan and McIntosh. This bottle-fermented and conditioned cider is unfiltered and extra brut. Bottled with a cap, the cider is designed to age in the bottle. With clean, fresh apple nose, the body and color are both light and Prosecco-like. Younger bottles focus on fresh apple skin, while older bottles develop a creamy texture with a toasty apple taste and underlying notes of Pecorino and Gorgonzola Dolce.
Orchard Hill is located at Soons Orchard, one hour north of New York City in New Hampton, New York. Using traditional fermentation and distilling methods, our products are made with a minimum of intervention, respecting the natural expressiveness of our fruit. Orchard Hill Cider Mill produces handcrafted, artisanal hard cider in small batches.
