Original Sin was born out of the NYC experience. The founders, all NYC'ers, came to see the need for a superior cider, a cider that was clean and complex with a noticeable bite. The quest to creat the perfect recipe encompassed both day and night. Day was spent in upstate in a winery, tasting, testing and mixing. Nights were spent in NYC bars, getting feedback from bar owners and patrons. The result, Original Sin Hard Cider was released to immediate acclaim from sources as diverse as the The New York Times, Paper Magazine, and Market Watch.
