Merchant’s Daughter is a small New York cider producer that sources heirloom apples from family owned Hudson Valley orchards and applies a winemaker approach to create ideal blends that have a subtle balance, pair stunningly well with food, and are immensely drinkable. Our brand is rooted in the historic Purdys, NY neighborhood general store that was passed down from generation to generation via the daughters. These hard-working women inspire us today as we honor their legacy and share our ciders with locavores, health conscious consumers and the growing regional cider scene.
Merchant’s Daughter hard cider is available in three varieties: Dry, Semi-Dry, and Clara’s Reserve across multiple package formats (750ml, 12oz. bottles and sixtel kegs). The taste-profile is sophisticated, apple-forward, with a bright, clean finish. Consumers have compared our ciders to prosecco and champagne…sophisticated, apple-forward profile which is clearly premium, but still approachable to appeal to a broad base of consumers.
