Liberty Ciderworks Stonewall Barrel Aged Cider

“For fall, I have a soft spot for Liberty Ciderworks Stonewall Barrel-Aged Cider ($16), from Spokane, Washington, for its oakiness and rich vanilla flavors. It pairs beautifully with pecan pie!” 

Redbyrd Orchard Ciders Celest Sur Lie

“One of my favorites, Redbyrd Orchard Cider’s Celeste Sur Lie ($27), from upstate New York, is dry, sparkling, and a little creamy. The brioche notes make it the perfect partner for a charcuterie board.” 

Slyboro Ciderhouse Cherry Harvest Ice Cider

“Another one from the New York region, the popular dessert cider Slyboro Ciderhouse Cherry Harvest Ice Cider ($28) is infused with sweet Montmorency cherries. It tastes divine drizzled over ice cream. Yum!” 

Orchard Hills Gold Label

Orchard Hill’s Gold Label ($28), from New York again (!), is a crowdpleaser: bubbly and balanced. It’s made like a Champagne and pairs well with seafood dishes.” 

South Hill Cider’s Pommeau

“Pommeau is a dessert cider, so it’s boozier and sweeter than traditional cider. I love South Hill Cider’s Pommeau ($28), from (you guessed it) New York. It has rich honey and stone-fruit notes.”
