PhillyBite10WALDEN,  JUNE  28,  2016  –  Angry  Orchard  today  announced  the  release  of  its  new  year-­‐round   specialty  hard  cider,  Walden  Hollow.  This  is  the  first  cider  from  Angry  Orchard  to  be  made  exclusively   with  apple  varieties  from  New  York  State,  including  varieties  from  last  year’s  harvest  at   the  Angry  Orchard   in  New  York’s  Hudson  Valley,  and  heirloom  apples  from  other  local  orchards.      

Last  fall,  Angry  Orchard  opened  the  Angry  Orchard  Innovation  Cider  House  on  a  100-­‐year-­‐old  apple   orchard  in  Walden,  NY  –  the  namesake  for  this  new  cider. The  Innovation  Cider  House  serves  as  a  center   for  research  and  development  where  the  cider  makers  are  putting  their  own  twist  on  traditional  ciders   and  driving  innovation,  experimenting  with  new  ingredients,  processes  and  techniques.    

“We’re  extremely  proud  of  Walden  Hollow  as  it’s  our  first  cider  made  with  apples  from  our  own   backyard,”  said  Ryan  Burk,  Angry  Orchard’s  head  cider  maker.  “The  mild  tannins  and  dryness  of  the  cider   capture  the  diversity,  complexity  and  depth  of  character  from  the  blend  of  New  York  State  apples.  It’s   cider  like  Walden  Hollow  that  inspires  us  to  continue  to  drive  innovation  and  reimagine  what  American   cider  can  be.”      

Walden  Hollow  is  fermented  over  many  months,  resulting  in  full  flavor  and  intense  apple  aroma  due  to   the  high  acidity  and  mild  tannins  from  New  York  State  heirloom  apples.  These  heirloom  varieties  include   Golden  Russet,  Newtown  Pippin  and  Northern  Spy,  all  of  which  have  deep  ties  to  the  Empire  State,   including  their  use  in  cider  dating  back  hundreds  of  years.  Walden  Hollow  will  be  released  annually  in  the   spring,  and  made  using  a  blend  of  New  York  apple  varieties  selected  by  Angry  Orchard’s  cider  makers   based  on  the  previous  year’s  harvest.        

Walden  Hollow  (8%  ABV)  is  the  fourth  style  to  join  the  Angry  Orchard  Cider  House  Collection  of   small  batch  craft  ciders,  and  will  be  available  nationwide  starting  in  June  2016.  This  style  is  available  in   750  mL  bottles  for  a  suggested  retail  price  of  $14.99  -­‐  $17.99  (price  varies  per  market).       To  find  where  Angry  Orchard  hard  cider  is  available  near  you,  visit  the  "cider  finder"   at­‐angry-­‐orchard/.
