We believe the finest ciders starts with the best apples. That’s why here at Jefferson County Cider Works we manage our own orchard to grow and hand-select every apple we use in our beverage. While our vision and trees mature to perfection, we aim to support local purveyors, sourcing our first apple harvests within a 50 mile radius. Much like a quality vineyard uses estate grown grapes, we are with our crop every step of the way – from branch to bottle.
Two years ago, we moved from the big city to the big expanse of the Iowa plains to pay homage to our early settlers and their rich history. In setting out to grow true cider apples, we source the best of the best — with heirloom varieties and diversity as our goal — and in do so we make our craft richer, and more flavorful.
A Passion for Flavor.
By embracing the wild side of yeasts, and tuning into how our apples evolve from season to season, every cider we craft is a story of flavor made using only the highest quality ingredients.
