MIDDLEBURY, VT — Vermont’s own Woodchuck Hard Cider presents Woodchuck Private Reserve Barrel Select. A true connoisseur’s cider inspired by the craftsmanship of the small batch bourbon distilleries of Kentucky, Woodchuck Private Reserve Barrel Select is handcrafted in a very small batch and is available in limited markets.
Woodchuck Private Reserve Barrel Select is the second Private Reserve Label to be released from the Woodchuck Cidery in Vermont following last year’s Private Reserve Pumpkin. Private Reserve Barrel Select is a special edition high end cider with a 6.9% ABV (alcohol by volume), compared to Woodchuck’s 4% and 5% for core and Limited Release styles. Woodchuck Private Reserve Barrel Select has an in-market date of June 1st and will be available in select markets across the United States (including New England, New Jersey, New York). Availability in select markets can be found at www.woodchuck.com/locator. Purchase will be available in six packs for which suggested retail is $10.99.
Displaying an elegant copper hue, the first sip captures a sweet apple taste, followed by the notes of vanilla and bourbon. Handcrafted to be served at 50 degrees, Barrel Select pairs well with artisanal cheeses, pork roast, and chocolate cake.

Woodchuck Private Reserve Barrel Select is naturally gluten-free, as are all Woodchuck Hard Ciders.
