The history of ice wine goes back to the first century AD, but ice cider is a brand new - and remarkably delicious -- phenomenon, born in the mid-1990’s right here in the region between northern Vermont and the townships of Quebec, Canada. At present, there are only about 50 producers of ice cider in the world, but the secret of this exciting and flavorful new product is getting out. Boyden Valley Winery’s Vermont Ice Cider is arguably America’s first ice cider. We use only Vermont grown Northern Spy, Macintosh, and Empire apples to create a truly extraordinary drinking experience. Aged in French oak barrels (it takes over 400 gallons of cider to produce just one barrel of our Vermont Ice Cider), the final product is a sweet, but complex combination concentrated apple flavors and light, toasted oak that goes perfectly with any number of desserts also, it’s a real treat just on its own.

Tasting notes
Vermont Ice Cider is barrel aged with balanced acidity, hints of oak and concentrated apple flavors.

Wine maker notes
We start with a very specific blend of apples consisting of Northern Spy, Macintosh and Empires. A typical batch will consist of naturally freezing 400 gallons of cider to yield one 60 gallon barrel of Ice Cider. Fermentation is done in a temperature controlled stainless steel tank at a very cool temperature of 45 degrees. Once the fermentation is finished the wine is clarified with bentonite and racked to the barrels were it will age for six months.
