The Standard Cider Co., now under the umbrella of Brotherhood Winery, finds its home in Washingtonville, New York. Established in 1839 boasting America’s oldest and largest wine cellars, Brotherhood lacks neither experience nor apples when it comes to crafting acclaimed wine and cider. To uphold the company’s valued orchard-to-barrel process, each New York State apple is milled mere hours prior to fermentation. Shortly thereafter, the sparkling, crisp elixir comes to life.
True Believer is the line’s classic sparkling cider. A blend of five apple varieties from the Hudson Valley—Cameo, Golden Delicious, Jonagold, Fuji and Granny—the cider starts out with an initial, bold zing on the palate and finishes soft and sweet. An appropriate addition to your Thanksgiving feast grocery list.
