WARWICK, N.Y. — Applewood Winery has announced a partnership with distributor Drinx Unlimited to make their line of Naked Flock Hard Ciders available to consumers in Connecticut.

Beginning this June, Naked Flock Hard Cider will be available to licensed restaurants and retailers in Fairfield, Litchfield, and New Haven counties through the wholesaler Drinx Unlimited. Naked Flock’s full core line-up of hand crafted hard ciders will be available for purchase, including their semi-sweet Draft Hard Cider (6.8% abv) flavored with a hint of maple syrup, and their semi dry Currant Hard Cider (6.5% abv) flavored with black currants grown in New York’s Hudson Valley. Their popular summer seasonal offering, Lemon Ginger Hard Cider (6% abv) will also be made immediately available for purchase with plans to release their Pumpkin Hard Cider (6.8% abv) this fall.

“We’re excited to begin working with Drinx Unlimited and join their growing craft beer and cider portfolio in order to bring our line of authentic, hand crafted ciders to a wider audience,” said owner and cidermaker Jonathan Hull.
