Original Sin

In 1997, Original Sin’s founder, Gidon Coll, set out on a mission to create a great American cider, both dry and natural. He extensively researched the history of cider and cider making and soon began sourcing the best apples and yeast strains. Supported by a local wine expert, he began mixing and testing in a small upstate New York winery, and brought his samples to NYC bars each week for feedback from owners, managers, and patrons. After six months, the first batch of O.S. was released to establishments in Brooklyn and Manhattan. Soon after, the product received critical acclaim from sources as diverse as The New York Times, New York Post, Paper Magazine, and Market Watch. Today, you can find our unique and acclaimed ciders in over half the country, with more regions being added every month.

Why Only Craft Beers?

The number one reason is craft beer tastes better than the "beer water" that is mass produced and mass marketed by the big beer companies. Craft beer tastes better because craft brewers spend their time focusing the quality of their beer rather than focusing on their marketing campaigns and stock prices.

Oh yeah! Craft beers can pack a punch. Most craft beers range from 5-10% ABV, but some can reach 20%, 30%, and even 40% ABV.
