Angry Orchard rolls out Stone Dry cider
CINCINNATI — Cider maker Angry Orchard has a new addition to its product line. The company announced the launch of its Stone Dry on Wednesday, which it says is modeled after traditional English cider from the U.K., where cider makes up some 15% of the beer market.
“At Angry Orchard, we're always experimenting with ingredients and recipes,” Angry Orchard cider maker Ryan Burk said. “With Stone Dry, we wanted to capture the heart of traditional bittersweet apple varieties by showcasing their naturally occurring tannins. Drinkers who are beginning to explore the drier end of the craft cider spectrum will enjoy Stone Dry for its full tannic mouthfeel, perceived dryness and robust bittersweet aromatic notes, much like a very ripe apple.”
The new Stone Dry cider is looking to be just one of the company’s new styles, as Angry Orchard is looking to open a new innovation center in the New York Hudson River Valley this fall. The center, called the Orchard, will feature a cidery for makers to test out new styles, apple varieties and fermentation processes.
Angry Orchard’s Stone Dry cider is sold in packs of six nationwide.
