Woodchuck’s Cellar Series has a new entry – Ginger. (The spice, not the one marooned on an island.)
The cidery used organic yellow ginger from a farm in Peru. The ginger come from a farm called La Grama, and is grown, harvest, and packaged in the Peruvian rainforest.
Woodchuck Cellar Series Ginger will be available in 22oz bombers now through July, 2014.

This edition is a bit of a collaboration with local business Vermont Smoke and Cure. Woodchuck cider maker John Matson filled their custom smokehouse with apple pomace (the pulpy residue left behind after the apples are press for juice). The pomace was smoked with maple and applewood chips, then brought back to the cidery.
The resulting flavor is described as having “strong crisp apple notes with hints of vanilla are balanced on an applewood smoked backdrop. A well-balanced, limited run cider that is perfect for the cooler days ahead.” Available in 22oz bottles only for a limited time. ERP $4.99
