Nine Pin Cider & Remarkable Liquids Pair Up to Donate to OutHudson

Nine Pin Ciderworks, New York’s first farm cidery, announced it has donated more than $2,000 to OutHudson, the Columbia County-based non-profit focused on improving the quality of life for LGBTQ+ individuals and to advance visibility within the county. Nine Pin partnered with its N.Y./N.J. distributor Remarkable Liquids on this effort.

Proceeds were raised by the sale of limited edition 12 oz. cans wrapped with Nine Pin’s 2022 interpretation of the Pride flag. Nine Pin has released a different variation of its Pride can for the past four years, and through its promotion, Nine Pin has raised over $6,000 for OutHudson.

The donation will directly support organizing a variety of educational as well as social LGBTQ+ events. These events include discussion groups, youth/teen support groups, drag brunches, movie screenings, community town halls, educational workshops, HIV/ AIDS programming and more.

“Nine Pin sources the lion’s share of the apples we use for our cider from Columbia County and I am proud to have grown up there. It’s not only fitting but an honor to support OutHudson and their incredible work for the LGBTQ+ community right in our backyard,” said Alejandro del Peral, co-founder and cidermaker, Nine Pin Cider.

“Each year, thePride can release continues to show just how much good can be done by not only celebrating the LGTBQ+ community, but actively working to support their visibility and well-being,” said Spencer Noakes, general manager, Remarkable Liquids. “We’re incredibly proud to join our friends at Nine Pin Cider in taking action and supporting OutHudson.”

“I am beyond grateful for Nine Pin’s many years of dedicated support for Columbia County’s longest running Pride celebration, said O Zotique, executive director, OutHudson. “Partnerships like these allow us to further the visibility and quality of life for those in the LGBTQ+ community.”
