Stormalong Cider

We are a small-batch, craft cider producer located in Sherborn, MA. When we say “cider”, we mean the fermented, “hard” version of the drink, like the term cider is known to represent in most other parts of the world.

In another example of a semi-forgotten slice of history, we discovered a gem of American folklore that begged us for attention. The tall-tale of Captain Alfred Bulltop Stormalong describes a larger-than-life figure, epically tall, originating out of New England and heralded as the greatest deep-water sailor to have ever lived. Stormalong’s story came out of the era of clipper ships and whalers, and the giant “Stormy” was known to swill hard cider out of barrels while washing down his favorite meal of shark meat and whale soup. Stormalong would sign his name with an A.B. at the end, abbreviating Alfred Bulltop, so his signature would like Stormalong, A.B. This “A.B.” came to be known as “able bodied”, and the term “able bodied seamen” was born from this story. This term “able bodied” serves as the badge for our brand.

We believe that the future is very bright for reviving cider and reacquainting Americans with a forgotten chapter in their history. There is room for innovation, exploration, and a general good time to be had by those in the pursuit of cider’s full potential. We’ll be here fine-tuning, learning, growing, and furthering our craft individually. We hope you’ll join us and make it a celebration.
