Shaker Shaker Cider Release

November 13, 2021

Near Albany International Airport, an ancient apple orchard still thrives. This historic orchard was planted by some of Albany's first settlers, The Shakers, back in the 1700's.

Today, the apples from these trees can be picked, pressed, and fermented to produce incredible ciders.

During the fall of 2020, we connected with the Shaker Heritage Society to harvest the apples from their orchard. We spent a full day "shaking" these trees and ended up with enough fruit to produce a small batch of hard cider.

The cider consists of over 25 varieties of apples and has an ABV of 7%.

We will be tapping the cider on Saturday, November 13 at 11 a.m. The Shaker Heritage Society will be here tabling from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.
