Real Apple Cider, Made Easy

For more than 30 years, we have been making our Hot Spiced Apple Cider Concentrate to warm people up.

What Makes our
Cider Special

Apple cider isn’t always the easiest of drinks to serve. For starters, it is usually only available in season, and then, you can only find it close to where it’s grown. Fresh cider will spoil after a week, and other bottled ciders contain preservatives to keep them from going bad. Don’t even get us started on the powder packets.

At the Mountain Cider Company, we decided the only way to make cider easier to use, was to concentrate it. Simple as that! Just apples, boiled down and mixed with a traditional blend of spices to complement the flavor. Over 30 years later and we still have customers coming back time and again. 

No Fridge, No Mess, No Wasted Space, Just Apple & Spice.

The Story of Mountain Cider

It all started over 30 years ago. Besides growing apples on our farm, we also grew Christmas trees. And since there’s nothing better than a cup of hot spiced cider on a cold winter day, we gave away free hot cider to everyone who bought a tree. The only problem was the New England weather. It was so difficult to predict how much cider we would need on any given day, and we often ended up with either gallons of wasted cider or too little for all of our thirsty, chilly customers. Then it hit us. We had a maple syrup evaporator on the farm, and we could use that to concentrate the cider. With a concentrated cider syrup, we could prepare the cider as needed and always be ready – no matter what Mother Nature had in store for us.

Our family has grown with the love of Mountain Cider, and we’re happy to share that love and passion for cider with you.

Mountain Cider Recipes

For years our family has tinkered around with new and exciting cider based beverages. In that time we’ve been fortunate enough to have plenty of willing guinea pigs when it comes to taste testing. We are always on the lookout for interesting new applications for our hot spiced apple cider concentrate, so if you come up with a good one, feel free to drop us a line.

Our cider concentrate will last 24 months or more from the date code on the bottle with no refrigeration required. The best-by date will be printed on the bottom rim of the jug. Some of our older half gallon jugs have a 5 digit julian date to show when it was made. If you have one of these (it’s likely expired), but the first three digits are the day of the year. ex “001” is January 1st, and “365” is December 31st. The last two digits are the year itself. ex “18” is 2018.

 

When cider is highly concentrated, the liquids evaporate and the solids and acids in the cider condense. With minimal water left, and the concentrated acids from the apples, no bacteria can grow. In a way, the concentrated apples act as their own preservative, so we don’t need to add anything else.

 

Yes. It is advised that pregnant women don’t drink unpasteurized cider because it has the potential to contain dangerous pathogens. The process of concentrating our cider eliminates any of these potential pathogens.
