Aaron Burr Cidery has become the sought-after icon of local, traditional cider making. This small homestead farm dates back to the early 1800s and is located in Wurtsboro, NY, in neighboring Sullivan County. Aaron Burr's name was on the original deed of the home, and a rebellious energy pulses through everything made by Andy Brennan and Polly Giragosian. Dedicated to making "true cider", once the most popular drink in America, their main source of apples are those that they forage themselves around the Hudson Valley and Lower Catskills.
Mamakating is the name of the town that encompasses the village of Wurtsboro, and ‘Mamakating Hollow’ refers to the area south of rt. 209, one of the original highways in the country, originally known as Old Mine Road. It was a Paleo-Indian trail thousands of years ago, and eventually was used by the Lenape. There is a densely forested area full of apple trees, and the apples are foraged from the location closest to the cidery. This cider is dry and crisp with integrated tannins, bright acidity, and small bubbles; driven by bitter-sharp apples, this vintage is quite exceptional compared to years past. 180 bottles produced.
