Hard Cider

Sierra Cider

apple orchard & cidery
Here at Sierra Cider’s farm & cidery we grow our own cider type apples including traditional English bittersweets, early American russets and lots of crab apples.
We blend them to balance the sharp, sweet and dry bitter tastes into complex and delicious ciders.
Our cidery and farm are located in the historic California foothills near the front gate to Yosemite National Park. Here the warm summers and cool autumn nights enrich the apple sugars and flavors to provide a premium juice to produce our fine ciders. We hope you will agree and enjoy our ciders with family and friends.

Silver Medal

Dry Summer Blend

We are very proud of our Dry Summer Blend, and from the comments of our customers who have tried it. This lightly carbonated semi-dry cider has a nice balance of tannin and acid from cider type apples, blending nicely with the low residual sugars making it a refreshingly semi-dry cider with no lingering sweet aftertaste. The blend of over a dozen types of our estate grown apples gives it body and mouth feel as attested by our customers. We hope you will agree.

This cider won a Silver Medal in the Heritage category at the 2019 Great Lakes International Cider and Perry Competition (GLINTCAP). GLINTCAP is the world's largest cider tasting competition taking in cider entries from Europe, Britain, Australia and other world-renowned cider producers. Our Dry Summer Blend also won a Best of Class and Gold Medal, and Bronze Medal award by GLINTCAP in 2017 and 2018, respectively.

Gold Medal Winner

Farmhouse Style

Another GLINTCAP award winner! This cider won a Gold Medal award in the Heritage category at the 2019 Great Lakes International Cider and Perry Competition. It also was given a Silver and Bronze Medal by GLINTCAP in 2017 and 2018, respectively.

This cider blend is low in carbonation, residual sugar and is on the dryer side so you can focus on the different types of English bittersweets and crabapple varieties we grow. The clean flavor is characteristic of the early days of cider making.

Early Harvest

This cider has won Best of Class and Gold Medal awards in the Heritage category for both 2018 and 2019 by GLINTCAP.  No wonder this major achiever and style is a favorite of our customers.  The cider’s wonderful fresh apple aroma is smooth, refreshing and pares well with your favorite meal.  Just a hint of sweetness, but bold in flavor with a surprising note of honey and apple blossom aroma making this blend from our estate grown apples a favorite of many. The sweetness counters the dryness and the carbonation adds to mouth feel.
