Green Mountain Beverage launched its flagship hard cider, Woodchuck, in Proctorsville, Vermont in 1991. From our modest start within a two-car garage, we have grown over the years to become the industry leader in hard cider. Woodchuck was the first nationally distributed hard cider to sell 1 million cases in the United States.
In 2013, Woodchuck joined C&C Group of Ireland, which specializes in the manufacturing, marketing, and distribution of cider, beer, wine, soft drinks, and bottled water, including Magners Irish Cider, the premium international cider brand and Tennent’s beer brand of Scotland. C&C is committed to manufacturing in the U.S. with investments of over $30 million in a new production facility in Middlebury.
