Star Ciders

Five Point: Our flagship cider. Made from a special blend of bittersweet and dessert apples locally grown in NY. This cider has perfect balance of acidity, tannin, and sweetness. Pairs well with good food, great times, and stellar people! 

Apple Crisp: This cider smells and tastes just like apple crisp! Created by using a blend of  NY dessert apples mixed with a special blend of spices borrowed from our Grandmother’s apple crisp recipe, because we all know Grandma’s recipes are the best! 

Ginger: Bright and bubbly, this cider is blended with fresh ginger root. Ginger aroma and flavor is balanced nicely with light acidity and sweetness. Pairs well with thai, spicy food, or sushi!

Citrus: Made with fresh citrus fruit peels and zest. This cider has wonderful citrus flavor and aroma that compliment the bittersweet apples used to make the cider.  This cider is smooth and refreshing and makes a wonderful mixer for cider mimosas! 

Frisky Whisky: This cider is blissfully delicious with a perfect balance of acidity and tannin. Made from a blend of wild apples then aged in whisky barrels for 1 year. The body of this cider is smooth with hints of oak, vanilla and whisky.  

Seasonal Releases

Appley Ever After: Wild apples were scavenged and blended with golden russet apples, they were pressed, and fermented dry. This cider was then put through a secondary fermentation in the bottle producing a tart, light, bubbly champagne style cider. Pairs well with weddings, anniversaries, and any occasion that is overflowing with love.

Forever Wild: This cider was created by fermenting a blend of rare wild apples. This cider is naturally tart and dry as a result of the acid in wild apples and has a wonderfully smooth finish and lingering esters of fresh picked apples.

Cinnamon Raisin: This cider has a hint of cinnamon and finishes with a distinct and delicious raisin flavor. We ventured into uncharted territory with this cider by infusing it with Nitro to create a smooth and creamy mouth feel.  One of NY’s first Nitro ciders and we #NAILDIT !

Ginger Snap: Fresh ginger root is blended with cinnamon to create this flavorful fall seasonal cider. Brilliant gold and slightly spicy, perfect for a warm up from the crisp autumn air. 

Strawberry: Crisp apple cider is blended with fresh-picked strawberries. Light pink and bubbly with aromas of red ripe strawberries. Fruit-forward and thirst quenching.

Rhubarb: Fresh heirloom rhubarb is hand-picked at its peak ripeness and blended with cider made from a mix of dessert apples. This cider is crisp, tart, and tastes like biting into fresh rhubarb.

Hopped: This cider is blended with a mixture of locally grown hops from Pedersen Hop Farms. Lemon and other citrus notes complement the apple aromas and flavors. Floral, zingy and bitter, the beer-drinkers cider.

Sour Cherry:  Locally sourced Sour Cherries are hand picked at their peek ripeness and added to our 5 Point cider. By leaving the skins on the Cherries we are able to extract all of the cherry goodness into our cider. This cider carries bold tart cherry flavor in every sip with a smooth crisp finish. 

Lemon Shandy: This cider is blended with a mixture of locally grown hops and fresh lemon zest. This cider is incredibly smooth and refreshing, especially on hot summer days!

Cranberry Bliss: Spigold and Northern Spy apples make up the base of this cider which is then blended with fresh cranberries sourced from Stone Bridge Farm in Massachusetts. This cider is tart, fruity, and refreshing with a lovely crimson color. 

Lone Star – Limited Batches

Crimson Frost: An iced-cider made by freezing small batches of fresh cider in snow banks. The acidity is balanced with a touch of brown sugar. Perfect with rich cheeses, desserts, or all on it’s own! Star Cider’s first bottled cider.  

How to get Star Cider on Tap

We do not currently have a tasting room facility that is open to the public (yet!) While we work toward that goal, we are fortunate enough to have the right to self-distribute our cider within state borders. Self-distribution allows us to use fresh ingredients that will not spoil or change flavor if they are shipped over long distances. This also provides another opportunity for us to work directly with our accounts to provide them the best possible service and support.

If you are interested in carrying Star Cider at your bar or restaurant in New York please send an email to StarCidery@gmail.com and let us know what cider you are interested in and when you would like to have it delivered.
