Yankee Doodle Joy

Hard cider is as American as apple pie. The Pilgrims drank it, as did George Washington, Ben Franklin and Thomas Jefferson. Then came Prohibition and lots of burned apple orchards.

A century later, though, home brewers are excited about hard cider again, thanks to the craft spirits revolution. Becoming a ciderist is easy: All you need is the pasteurized cider of your choice (as long as it doesn't contain preservatives like potassium sorbate or sodium benzoate, which kill the yeasts that do the fermenting) and this kit. Follow a few simple steps, let nature do its work, and a subtle, sparkling dry cider will be your reward. Maybe this is what the Founders meant by "the pursuit of happiness." Assembled in New York. 4-5% ABV.
