In the cider-producing West of England wassailing refers to drinking (and singing) the health of trees in the hopes that they might better thrive. The purpose of wassailing is to awake the cider apple trees and to scare away evil spirits to ensure a good harvest of fruit in the Autumn.

Join us on Saturday, January 17 for our First Annual Orchard Wassail celebration and launch of our very own Rootstock Hard Cider! We will be offering a choice of 3 mixed cocktails, NY state red and white wine by the glass and pints of Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout as well our Rootstock Original Hard Cider—There will also be food available for purchase and live music. We will have a bonfire by the orchard for the wassailing, as well as ample merriment in the distillery and tasting roomfor those of you who prefer warmth and comfort.
