In keeping with New York State’s 300-year-old history of cider making, Bloody Ban’s hard cider uses a proprietary blend of heirloom cider apples and traditional fermentation methods to make small-batch, elevated, fine, hard cider.

Based in an 1850s farmhouse in Pound Ridge, New York, Bloody Ban’s is inspired by the American resistance in Tarleton’s Raid, a local, 1779 battle between patriots and loyalists. “Bloody Ban” refers to Banastre Tarleton, the ferocious, young British leader who met his match when the American patriots forced him to retreat. With gratitude to the patriots who saved our town, we named our first release Bloody Ban’s Match.

We encourage you to buy a bottle of Bloody Ban’s hard cider and raise a toast to those brave patriots of Pound Ridge. We think you’ll find Bloody Ban’s Match to be well-balanced, sparkling, and dry—the perfect compliment to both sweet and savory dishes.
