SHERBORN, Mass. — Stormalong Cider is now available to licensed restaurants and retailers throughout Vermont thanks to its distribution partnership with Farrell Distributing.
Residents of Vermont can now purchase and enjoy Stormalong’s core line-up of ciders including the tannic flagship Legendary Dry, a Citra dry-hopped cider, and Mass Appeal featuring McIntosh apples balancing tart and a hint of sweet. In addition, Stormalong contributed a can to the new “Cider Grown” variety 4 pack which is also distributed by Farrell through Vermont. The “Cider Grown” variety pack includes ciders from Massachusetts based Stormalong Cider, Vermont based Eden Specialty Ciders, and New Hampshire native Farnum Hill Ciders. “Cider Grown” demonstrates the unique orchard-based approach to making cider with apple varieties grown specifically for hard cider. Along this notion, Stormalong’s product line also includes a “Rare Apple Series” which highlights a single varietal Kingston Black cider as well as a Boston Heirloom cider made with a 50-50 blend of Roxbury Russet and Baldwin apples.
“We poured cider last summer at the Vermont Cider Classic in Burlington and were pleased at a great response from festival goers. Vermont has a vibrant cider scene and an appreciation for companies with a paramount focus on quality and ingredients. We base our brand on these values and felt like our cider would resonate in Vermont and be a welcome addition to our orbit,” said Shannon Edgar, founder and cider maker, Stormalong Cider. “We’re happy to begin this partnership with Farrell Distributing who shares a similar vision.”
“We’re excited to work with Stormalong Cider and spearhead its expansion into the Vermont market,” said Jeff Baker, Curator of the Curriculum, Farrell Distributing. “Their values align well with ours and their passion for producing quality cider is inspiring. We’re proud to partner with Stormalong and are pleased to welcome them into our curated cider portfolio.”
With this expansion, Stormalong Cider is now available in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Vermont.
