Inside Woodchuck’s New Ginger Cider [Video]

Woodchuck’s new summer offering is Woodchuck Ginger. The ginger lends the cider a spicy “zing.”  John Matson of Woodchuck wanted to source organic ginger. That was easier said than done.  As it turns out, there is only one place in the United States that grows organic ginger – that’s Big Island, Hawaii.  Once the ginger was procured, getting the ginger into the cider was no picnic either.
