Colorado Cider Company was founded to produce a fresh hard cider for the discerning Colorado drinker. With a well-developed craft beer market and and educated populace, Hard Cider has been a missing choice in the cacophony of craft drinks in local pubs & liquor stores. We hope to remedy that.
Glider is our flagship dry cider. Crisp, tart and drinkable.
Gluten Free-All Juice, 6.95% ABV- in 22oz bottles
The “dry” version of Glider has a whisper of juice added back, like a mist of vermouth over a fine martini. Our yeast loves apple juice sugar and eats it all up in the fermenter. Alcohol is all that’s left of its efforts. A completely dry cider is not for the feint of heart and they say it can be used to re-finish furniture. We decided to dial that back a bit.

Grasshop-ah is an ode to the botanical neighbors and flavors of our favorite grasses and flowers. We’ve married our cider with hops (flowers) and Lemon Grass (uh,.. grass) Apples grow in areas that are also conducive to hop cultivation and Lemon Grass seems to grow anywhere. While this may be heretical to Cider purists we know plenty of folks who love the aroma of hops and think the background of cider makes perfect sense. The lemongrass thing is a nice fusion of citrus that seems to work. At least we think so. We hop you like it too.
Gluten Free, 6.95% ABV - in 500ml bottles
Ol' Stumpy is our premium blend of traditional cider apples from New England plus Granny Smith, Jonagold, and cider that's been aged in a chardonnay barrel. These traditional cider apples give Ol' Stumpy an earthy flavor and the tannic mouth-feel that makes you think you're sitting in an old orchard sipping history. The apple springing from a long neglected tree stump is emblematic of the revival of traditional ciders across America. LIMITED AVAILABILITY !!
Gluten Free, 6.95% ABV - in 750ml bottles
MEL (Pome Mel)
Our Apple Honey Cider (Pome Mel) is a classic take on what’s sometimes referred to as “Cyser”. We use about 300 pounds of Colorado Wildflower honey in each batch and infuse hints of Lavender and Rosemary to compliment the botanical origins. Bees are an important part of an apple orchard and we think honey is a nice addition to cider. We use honey as part of the fermentation and as a back sweetener to get just the right balance. Not too sweet, not too dry. We hope you enjoy Mel!

\'pa r-snik- t-¯e\ adj.
We here at Colorado Cider Company have been accused of being obsessed with detail and of wanting only the finest things. Well, when it comes to our products we certainly are hard to please. Our perry is a perfect example. Made from Colorado pears and aged to (what we consider) perfection. Like our ciders, Pearsnickety is not sweet, but a pear-tastic treat! If you’re a little fussy we think you’ll like it too.
Ingredients: Pear juice & yeast.
