The Vermont-based company launches bold grapefruit and hop cider

Gumption Citrus Freak

Gumption® Hard Cider is excited to launch Citrus Freak™, the newest member of their Circus of Ciders. A perfect pairing of common eating apples, grapefruit, and cascade hops, this semi-dry cider delivers a bold and unique citrus taste. Gumption Citrus Freak joins Gumption Original as the second year-round option within the portfolio for an all-day enjoyable experience. The new cider is 5.5% ABV and will be available in 6-packs of 12 oz. longneck bottles nationwide.

“Citrus Freak highlights the Gumption brand spirit of innovation,” says Brand Manager Phil Tucker. “The new prankster in our portfolio showcases our Cider Makers adventurous and experimental side. It’s one of the best liquids to come out of the cellar and will be a must-have all year.”

The launch of Citrus Freak will be supported by fun POS and both on and off-premise samplings. For more information, samples, or hi-res imagery, contact Phil Tucker at or (802)-458-9468.
