It's no secret that the Hudson Valley is truly an apple lover's nirvana. Everywhere you turn, there are high-quality orchards producing world class apples, perfect for snacking, baking, or turning into absolutely delicious ciders.

Because it's Hudson Valley Cider Week, we are going to be inviting some of these cideries in to talk about what they make, how it stands out, what it means to them to be a Hudson Valley cider maker. Oh, and of course, we tell you how you can get your hands on it.

One of the cideries putting out some incredible cider featuring ciders from right here in the Empire State is Awestruck, who don't just produce cider, they produce cider with really interesting flavors and twists that you might not expect. From unique aromas to surprising flavors, chances are Awestruck has made something unlike any cider you've tried before.

Can't get enough delicious, delicious cider? Join us at the Hudson Valley Cider Festival at Barton Orchards in Poughquag on July 18.
