Woodchuck Draft Cider, Vermont’s premier hand-crafted hard cider, launches Woodchuck Fall Cider – the 2009 Fall Season Limited Release. The unique taste and aroma of Woodchuck, not found in any other hard cider, results from century old hand-crafting techniques… The 2009 Woodchuck Fall Cider begins with apples that are pressed to juice, fermented and then cold-filtered. Then master cider maker and creator of the original 1991 Woodchuck recipe, Greg Failing, performs his personal touch with an attractive bouquet of autumn spices starring cinnamon and nutmeg. Creation of this season’s limited release is completed while Failing balances out the taste with a hint of American white oak.

Thanks, Necrobones, for the heads-up. I can't wait to try this.

I loooove Woodchuck, but there is another hard cider out there, Magner's, which is INCREDIBLE!
Smooth on the end, no bite, and just sweet enough that you can dangerously drink several in one sitting :)
I'm in MD and it's not carried widely, you might have to check around - perfect for the Fall!

We bought some this weekend and really liked it. It tastes like fall harvest in a bottle.

My personal favorite is "J.K. Scrumpy's Hard Cider"

Never heard of Magner's. I'll check that out. We were big "K" drinkers. Really dry and smooth. But they don't sell it here any more.

We've tried Scrumpy's and LOVE it. Tall bottles. And not too sweet.
And dry.
