What is Heritage Cider?

Heritage cider is made primarily with authentic bittersharp/bittersweet cider and heirloom apples such as Dabinett, Cox’s Orange Pippin, Golden Russet, Harrison, Puget Spice and Kingston Black to name a few. These apples provide acidity, sugar and tannins which contribute incredible complexity, flavor and aroma to the cider. Heritage cider favors traditional winemaking techniques and requires "aging" to perfect the flavor.

 

Our Puget Sound Cider Company Heritage Ciders are small-batch and made with only our own 100% cold-pressed apple juice from cider specific and heirloom apples. There are no added sugars , extracts or flavors. Our ciders are aged from 4-12 months depending on the variety of apples used. Many of our varieties incorporate other whole fruits such as cherries, blackberries, peaches, pineapples, raspberries, cranberries and others.
