Top 5 Hard Ciders

  1. ACE Premium Hard Ciders
    • ACE produces seven tasty ciders, including pumpkin, the flavor is anything but basic.
  2. Crispin Natural Hard Apple Cider
    • Crispin has created a line of artisanal reserves, which includes “The Saint” – it smells like a beer but added maple syrup adds a sweet smoothness to the fruity tang.
  3. Foggy Ridge Cider
    • Foggy Ridge treats their apples as winemakers treat their grapes. The apples are grown specifically for their tannins, giving even their sweetest ciders a bit of a bite.
  4. Wescott Bay Traditional Cider
    • Made in the style of champagne, it’s mildly sweet with fresh apple flavor and a smack of smoke.
  5. Eden Northern Spy Ice Cider
    • This Vermont ice cider is stronger than the average cider. The apples are chilled in cold storage after they’re picked and then the pressed juice is frozen before being fermented. Extra chilly means extra boozy.
