Middlebury, VT– In Vermont many folks say there are five seasons – spring, summer, fall, winter and maple sugaring season – when temperatures still freeze at night, but the lengthening days are warm and sunny. Springtime in Vermont is when the maple trees are tapped and the woods are filled with the sound of sap dripping into metal buckets. Farmers and hobbyists alike spend countless hours crafting Mother Nature’s sweetest gift into “liquid gold.”
At the Woodchuck Cidery located in the western valleys of Vermont, the newest Limited Release Cider is being handcrafted and Woodchuck Hard Cider President and CEO, Bret Williams, is pleased to announce:
“Our 2011 Spring Cider is balanced with the flavors and aroma of fresh maple syrup and brown sugar – a little piece of Vermont tradition captured in every bottle.”
Woodchuck Spring Cider Limited Release shipped mid-January and can be found on shelves across the county throughout February and March. A location finder can be found online at www.woodchuck.com/locator. Woodchuck Spring Cider is available in six packs and Variety 12-packs as the season’s “Cidermaker’s Choice.” Suggested retail is $8.99 per six pack. Alcohol content is 5% per volume.
Woodchuck Hard Cider incorporated local maple syrup from Vermont producers to craft the Spring Cider Limited Release and provide a delicate sweetness that does not overpower the palate and is true to Woodchuck’s tradition – independent to the core. Woodchuck Spring Cider is naturally gluten free, as are all Woodchuck Hard Ciders.
