- Far from ordinary, apples are the most diverse food plant on earth. Unfortunately, only a handful of varieties are cultivated at scale in America, and all of those are designed for eating, not cider making.
At Shacksbury cider in Vermont, we believe cider can, and should, be daring and complex. From gnarled trees on New England farmsteads to Old World orchards in England and Spain, our cider will change the way you think about this amazing fruit.
The Classic cider is a lightly sparkling, dry, and food-friendly cider. Made from Browns, Ellis Bitter, Dabinett, Michelin, Jonagold, Spartan, and Somerset Redstreak apples grown in two orchards — Sunrise Orchards in Cornwall, Vermont and Dragon Orchards in Herefordshire, England. The result is refreshing and balanced with ripe apple flavors and a savory finish. The best pizza cider, ever.
