Colonial Ciders Celebrating America's Heritage

There are lots of historical records that talk about the role of apple cider in the lives of America's first colonists and the leaders who guided the creation of the country.

Just as historic places such as Williamsburg, Jamestown, Monticello, Mt. Vernon, and others have been preserved, so have some of the memories. The ciders on this page, like the sites they represent, are part of that historical fabric.

These LIMITED EDITION products are perfect as a gift or teaching tool for those who relish American history.



Monticello Sparkling Cider
Mount Vernon Sparkling Mulled Cider
Monticello Sparkling Cider

Cider was one of Thomas Jefferson's preferred beverages and his own orchards yielded a delightful variety of apples: Hewes Crab, Golden Wilding, and Taliaferro. Virginia cider, a non-alcoholic beverage that he compared to a silky champagne, was his favorite. Now you can enjoy Monticello Cider, a unique blend that is still created and bottled in Jefferson's Virginia.

Mount Vernon Sparkling Mulled Cider

President George Washington and him family were cider lovers, as guests discovered when they visited the Mount Vernon Estate. In 1774 records indicate the family purchased no less than 477 gallons. Washington also made his own cider, probably at River Farm, one of the five adjacent farms which formed the estate. Today's Mount Vernon cider, offered in a green champagne-style bottle with a red foil neck wrap, is lightly mulled in flavor.
