About Contoocook Cider
We use many of our 120 plus varieties of apples grown by Gould Hill Farm to make our ciders. Using the freshest apples means the flavors are at their peak when they are pressed and fermented, allowing for the apples to dominate the flavor. Ours ciders are minimally processed and bring balance to the acids, sugars and tannins to express the true character of the apples and fruits.
