The Best Hard Ciders

List RulesTypes of hard ciders.

There’s nothing better than popping the top off a bottle of hard cider in the middle of the winter, drinking the bubbly goodness slowly, breathing in the aroma of crisp apple, pumpkin spice, savory pear or the subtle fragrance of ginger spice. Whether it’s an amber, oak aged, or crisp hard cider you’re thirsty for, this list of the best hard ciders has something just for you.

Hard cider is known for having a sweet, crisp, smooth, and sometimes spicy taste. It is typically made from fruits like apples, pears, or peaches, and in some regions of the world it is also referred to as “apple wine.” While apple cider can be made from any variety of apples, there are certain fruit tree farms that cultivate their apples specifically for apple cider!

This list contains the most popular types of hard cider, including: Samuel Smith’s Organic, Crispin the Saint, Woodchuck Winter Oak Aged Draft Cider and Thistly Cross Scottish.
