Headwater Cider Company

Headwater Cider Company New England Style cider is described as the only cider style originating in the USA. It is dry, and the alcohol is higher due to the added sugar. The aroma is clear and subtle. The acidity provides a strong backbone that is smoothed through bottle aging. We make the cider using only three simple ingredients: Apples, Sugar, Yeast The apples are pressed right at harvest to get the freshest cider. We never, ever use concentrate. The sugar is added to assure a constant amount of alcohol (8%). The yeast ferment the sugar and add their own subtle characteristics. We never, ever force-carbonate (like soda-pop). No other ingredients are necessary to make this fine cider.
