What is Cider?

Cider is a beverage made from crushed and fermented apples. Ciders are technically considered wine, not beer, and can be classified from “sweet” to “dry.” Cider’s roots run deep. When the Romans invaded England in 55 BC, they found the locals drinking cider. In Medieval times, cider was used as currency to pay laborers. It was one of Colonial Americans’ favorite beverages and the Pilgrims even brought apple seeds and cider making tools with them on the Mayflower.

Today cider is enjoyed all over the world. At 3 Daughters Cider, we aim to make it a regular and refreshing part of all your celebrations – from birthdays to backyard barbecues, from suppertime to Saturday night, and from out on the boat to a day at the beach.

“It is indeed bad to eat apples.
It is better to make them all into cider.”
Benjamin Franklin

Original Apple Cider

Our “Original” is what great hard apple should be: slightly sweet with a medium body and very refreshing. A great choice for everyday drinking with big apple flavor.


Key Lime Apple Cider

Hard apple cider blended with key lime juice for a uniquely Florida taste. The sweet apple flavor is nicely balanced by the tart, zesty key lime juice.  Serve cold for a refreshing break from the hot Florida sun.
