Austin Eastciders

About The Brand

Just like many pre-prohibition ciders, we've selected apples from Europe and Washington State. To preserve freshness, the fruits are harvested and pressed at the orchard, then delivered to our cidery in Austin, Texas.These apple varieties have the bitter-sharp and bittersweet components that bring character to our drink. Only the finest apples can create the best cider. With this base of un-compromised fruit, we also use a white wine yeast which has been selected for aromatic retention and slow, cold fermentation tolerance. This helps preserve the natural, fruity nose and complex flavor you experience when enjoying this drink. This ferment is fed nutrients at key stages to allow the perfect transition of fruit sugar to alcohol, like that of a wonderful Riesling or Gewürztraminer wine. Once fermentation is complete, we use state of the art filtration for gorgeous clarity, without stripping components that add to mouthfeel. This is extremely important because it ensures that we donÍt remove any of the exciting attributes that our apples can present to you. Austin Eastciders is all about authenticity and commitment to quality. These ideals, along with our service to employees and community, set the stage for an environment of enjoying a tasty beverage with the company of good people. "How do you like them apples?
