Bellwether Hard Cider, located in the beautiful Finger Lakes
Region of Upstate New York, specializes in the production of hard cider, a new
“old” beverage that once reigned as our nation’s most popular drink. We use a wide variety of Upstate New York
apples to produce a range of carefully handcrafted, premium ciders. These ciders range from extremely dry
Champagne-style ciders, to a semi-dry non-sparkling ciders made with
traditional English and French cider apples and classic Upstate varieties, to
several lightly sparkling ciders that have some sweetness and refreshing apple
taste, and our distinctive Cherry
Street which is a lightly sparkling blend of apple
and tart cherry. Bellwether Hard Cider
is a member of the Cayuga Wine Trail.
BELLWETHER CASE CLUB
They say commitment can be scary. We think commitment can save you some money! When you purchase a full case (12 bottles) of cider at one time, you are automatically entered into our Case Club! Once you are a member, you will enjoy a 20% discount on all future case purchases. Just buy at least one case every 12 months to stay active!
*We automatically enter every customer who purchases a full case into our Case Club. Unfortunately, at this time our web site is not 'smart' enough to calculate your Case Club discount. For every case order that comes in over the web, we personally check our Case Club database and manually apply the discount for our Case Club members. Don't worry if your discount doesn't show up at check out-we promise we will manually adjust it for you!*
FREQUENT BUYER CARD
We're pleased to introduce our Frequent Buyer Card! These cards are available in our tasting room, the Ithaca Farmer's Market, and the New Amsterdam Market. Each time you buy a bottle at one of these locations, we will punch your card. Get 12 punches and receive a FREE bottle of cider! These cards are our way of saying thanks to our loyal customers who stop in for just a bottle or two at a time, and therefore are only valid on purchases of 1-5 bottles. At this time we do not have a way of using the cards with our web orders.
