"Sweet" Apple Cider, Non-Alcoholic

Apple cider was a flourishing industry in Europe even before America was discovered. Today the Normandy and Brittany regions of France are famous for their apples. Early 17th century European settlers in the U.S. brought apple seeds with them and began planting orchards. The colonists used their apples to make cider, just as they had done in the Old World. Soon Colonial cider became important as both an agricultural commodity and as a means of exchange. (Wikipedia and Slow Food USA)

While hard apple cider is easy to find, premium non-alcoholic versions (known as "sweet ciders") are elusive. We have stocked our shelves with the finest gourmet products available -- the web's largest single source for cider from the world's orchards.

All of these ciders are 100% apple and bottled in celebratory champagne-style glass. Like the apples they came from, some have a bit of a bite while others lean to smooth and sweet. We have organic, we have kosher too!

Do you like to spice up your apple beverage with an exotic combination of other fruits? Then browse our apple blends.


French  Sparkling Cider, Duche de Longueville
Chateau Normandie Sparkling Apple Cider, France
Sparkling Crisp Apple Cider, Knudsen's
French Sparkling Cider, Duche de Longueville

The Normandy region of France is home to one of America's best-loved international ciders. Duche de Longueville comes from a 50-year-old orchard near Dieppe, France where 15 carefully chosen apple varieties are used to produce this exquisite cider. Many of America's finest restaurants honor Duche de Longueville by offering it as the only non-alcoholic option on their wine lists. My favorite steak house will provide you with a bottle for $35. We offer it at a more reasonable price!

KUDOS: "This cider from a 50-year-old orchard in Normandy is considered a classic." IMBIBE Magazine, September/October 2006

Chateau Normandie Sparkling Apple Cider, France

The French have done it again with the launch of Chateau Normandie Sparkling Apple Cider. Using centuries-old methods gives this cider a character and taste remarkably smooth to the palate. Savor it like a premium wine and you will discover that in France, excellence and tradition also come free of alcohol!

KUDOS: "Drier and more complex than many alcohol-free sparkling ciders, Château Normandy is packed with Granny Smith apple tartness that's balanced by earthly hints of apple peel and subtle cinnamon . . . sip it alongside holiday favorites like oven-roasted turkey, root veggies, and pumpkin pie." IMBIBE Magazine, November/December 2009.

Sparkling Crisp Apple Cider, Knudsen's

Take a crisp cold apple out of the cooler. Listen for that crisp crunch as you take your first bite. Notice the sweet juice that collects at the corner of your lips. It is no wonder that apples have been favorite fruits for generations. And the folks at Knudsen's knew their family of juices would not be complete without a pure, crisp sparkling cider from fresh whole apples. It is 100% juice and 100% celebratory!

Crystal Canyon Sparkling Apple-Peach Cider, Spain

Distant cousins with peach farmer parents, irrigation canals for swimming and fishing, dusty paths for tractors and old bikes through a forest of heavy-laden branches. It is an image I relish with each sip of Crystal Canyon's Sparkling Apple-Peach Cider. Your story will be different but just a sweet as mine. Go ahead and tell it as I fill my goblet, lean back in the porch chair, and put my feet on a old dusty orchard box. Yes, I'm listening!

Sheffield Vintage Dry Sparkling Cider

The folks at Sheffield Cider have blended semi-sweet apples with an extra measure of tannins to produce a subtle astringent flavor. Tannins? Astrigent? Say what? Astringency from the tannins is what causes the dry and puckery feeling in the mouth! The result is a cider that is excellent when served at meals and which enhances the flavors of your menu selections.

Two generations later Zeigler's ciders are marketed in multiple states and are 100% juice from fresh apples. Maurice would be proud!

Sparkling Organic Apple Juice, Knudsen's

In 1961, when Russel W. Knudsen began bottling fruit juices from his organic grape vineyard, he did so on one condition: his fresh pressed and blended juices would never have artificial flavors, preservatives or sugar added to them. This commitment ensured that customers who came up the hill to Knudsen's Paradise, Calif., Concord grape vineyard could always buy the finest juice available. Little did R.W. Knudsen know he was starting a tradition of innovation in health-conscious products. Today the innovation continues with Knudsen's Organic Apple Juice, bottled in a celebratory champagne-style bottle.
