The first of its kind to be made in the USA, Orchard Hill Ten66 is inspired by the typical French Norman aperitif. It is named for the Year of the Norman invasion of England (1066). This still, balanced aperitif is made with apple brandy that is aged in french oak wine barrels, then blended with fresh sweet apple juice from our own sustainably grown apples. We age this pioneering pommeau for a minimum of 3 years in barrels.

Description: following the Norman tradition, we use brandy distilled from our cider and aged in used french oak barrique to blend with our estate juice for extended aging

Appearance: golden color, medium clarity, unfiltered

Flavor Profile: sweet but balanced, baked apple, vanilla, caramel notes from extended oak aging

Brand for Orchard Hill Cider Mill
Orchard Hill Cider Mill is an estate cidery located in the Hudson Valley, and approximately a 1 hour drive north of New York City. We make premium cider for wine drinkers. Our ciders tend be drier, since we make ciders that we would like to drink ourselves. We love cider that reflects the contribution of quality fruit. Our mission is to put our orchard in a glass. We work to let the apples express themselves by combining a very traditional and minimalist approach to cider making, with modern winemaking techniques. The outcome is a range of refreshing and expressive ciders and pommeau.
