Nine Pin Ciderworks, New York’s first farm cidery, releases its newest seasonal cider style, Lavender Lemonade, just in time for the summer solstice. The cider is a refreshing twist on Nine Pin’s classic farmhouse blend of apples, infused with culinary lavender and a finishing touch of lemon juice. To craft this cider, Nine Pin uses 100 percent New York apples from Samascott Orchards in Kinderhook, N.Y., and unique, culinary grade lavender sourced locally from Lavenlair Farms in Whitehall, N.Y. The cider is then topped off with lemon juice, resulting in a floral cider with a crisp and refreshing finish.“We really enjoy having the opportunity to work with local growers such as Lavenlair Farms to create custom, one of kind ciders like Lavender Lemonade,” said Alejandro del Peral, co-founder and cidermaker. “The cider has a bright, citrusy, refreshing flavor that’s perfect for the summer months.”

“We are excited to continue our partnership with Nine Pin,” said Diane Allen, owner of Lavenlair Farms. “This partnership allows us to bring the taste of farm-grown lavender to cider lovers everywhere.”

Lavender Lemonade Cider is currently available in 12 oz. cans in Nine Pin’s tasting room in Albany as well through retailers throughout New York, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and New Jersey. Residents in other states can purchase Lavender Lemonade Cider through Nine Pin’s online store.
