It begins in the orchard 

Our cidermakers start with true cider apples and heirloom varieties. With a focus on fruit that delivers rich, round tannins and lively acids—qualities that make fine cider stand out. The makers press these apples into a pomace that gives like a grape and ferments like wine. Through careful attention and exacting skill, they make extraordinary cider that lets that fruit shine through.

Then we lend a hand

Wine Spectator reports that “there are more than 500 cider producers in the US today, but many don't have distribution outside their local area.” That's where CIDRBOX comes in: Each month we travel to the orchard of a single, distinctive American heritage cidermaker, where we pack their rare and hard-to-find cider and ship it directly to you. 

Now it’s your turn: To open, share and enjoy

“The pleasures of orchard-based cider are akin to the pleasures of a good, grower-based wine,” says Steve Wood, orchardist and Farnum Hill cidermaker. We agree. Take your time. Enjoy this cider like fine wine. Share with friends and experience everything cider can be. You'll taste the finer side of cider when you subscribe to CIDRBOX »

"And as for the Cidrbox experience, I could not be happier! The ciders were packed securely, shipped promptly, presented contextually, and best all well chosen." —Along Came a Cider reviews CIDRBOX »

"Cider is a drink that has all the complexity of wine with the thirst-quenching drinkability of beer.” —Bon Appétit Magazine


PLACE. Each bottle we ship tells the story of the place where it was made: Of the tree that produced the apples. Of the soil that made it unique. Winemakers call it terroir—we call it great cider

PEOPLE. Each box introduces you to a cidermaker who is a credit to the craft of hard cidermaking in America, and every Cider Session we share brings you closer to their craft. Your CIDRBOX includes their best work: An assortment of beautifully balanced ciders, ranging from dry to semi-sweet, that rival fine wine and complement your table

PLANET. We ship CIDRBOX once a month, by design. Why? To use fewer fossil fuels and limit the impact on our small producers. This is cider worth waiting for—and keeping it green means that we can keep it coming
