On the Sweet Side - Sweet Cider Sample Pack

This variety pack of cider is for the cider drinker with a sweet tooth, or anybody who wants to explore a mix of elevated, craft ciders that are semi-sweet to sweet. The 4-pack includes high end ciders made exclusively with apples; the 6-pack also includes a couple of fruit forward semi-sweet ciders with fruit added after the cider's fermentation. We carefully selected the 4 apple forward ciders to include a range of acidity and tannin levels to help folks find cider characteristics they may find they enjoy and want to explore further. 

Semi-Sweet Cider and Sweet Ciders Included in this Bundle: 

  • Snow Capped Cider - Pinova Single-Varietal Cider (Colorado): made with a rare sweet apple vareity grown on Snow Capped's high elevation orchards in Colorado, which increases UV exposure and creates intense flavor profiles.  Semi-sweet with tiny bubbles and tropical aromas. Notes of fresh apple juice, mango, pineapple, and Meyer lemon. Juicy, mouthwatering acidity - uncommon in most widely available sweet ciders. 
  • Eric Bordelet - Sidre Tendre (Normandy, France): A delightful sparkling French Cider from one of the finest cider makers in France. Made with blend of French bittersweet apple varieties and keeved - a process that halts fermentation before it is completed, leaving more residual sugar and therefore sweetness in the finished cider. A touch of tannins, uncommon in most widely available sweet ciders. Tannins are often experienced as a late drying sensation on the gum line. 
  • Sea Cider Farm & Ciderhouse - Kings & Spies (British Columbia, Canada): Crafted from King apples, Northern Spies, and other apples of mysterious lineage, this cider is crowd-sourced and community-minded to the core. Semi-sweet with modest acidity and little-to-no tannins. Notes of green apple, melon, a hint of white flowers, and light herbaceous notes. 
  • Liberty Ciderworks Lafayette (Washington State): Another keeved cider with residual sweetness, but with a mix of bittersharp and bittersweet apple varieties that have balanced, medium levels of both tannins and acid. Bold notes of baked apple with supporting notes of butterscotch and caramel. 

Get the 6-bottle version of this bundle and save an extra $10. You'll get 2 fruit forward ciders, currently: Bauman's Loganberry Cider and Cockrell's Blackberry Cider.

Sale price $87.00

We ship cider in boxes that safely hold 4-bottles, 6-bottles, or 12-bottles. Order in one of those quantities (or multiples of those quantities) to maximize your shipping value. For example, if you order 2-3 ciders, there will be room left in the box and it won't meaningfully change the shipping costs to fill the box.

We do have 1-bottle boxes, but in most all instances it will cost the same to ship you a full 4-bottle box.

Shipping to a business address will usually save you a few bucks!

Shipping cost estimates:

  • Pacific Northwest/West Coast: Shipping anywhere in the Pacific Northwest or West Coast is relatively inexpensive. Almost all box sizes cost $16-21 to ship. Same is true for most destinations in the Mountain Time Zone.
  • Central Standard Time Zone / Midwest: A 4-bottle or 6-bottle box will usually cost $18-24 to ship. A 12-bottle box will usually cost $22-30 to ship. Variance depends on weight and how far from a FedEx/UPS shipping center your delivery address is.
  • East Coast: A 4-bottle or 6-bottle box will usually cost $20-25 to ship. A 12-bottle box will usually cost $25-35 to ship. Variance depends on weight and how far from a FedEx/UPS shipping center your delivery address is.

Important Shipping Information:

  • We are able to ship cider to most, but not all, states.
  • Legally, someone 21+ must be present at the time of delivery to sign for the cider. We cannot ship to PO Boxes or AFO/FPO addresses.
  • Shipping prices vary by weight and destination. How far you are from Seattle (where we ship from), and remote vs. central your shipping destination is, and how heavy your box is will make shipping vary.
  • The bigger the box, the less you pay in shipping on a per-bottle basis. We ship in 1, 4, 6, and 12 bottle boxes - order in those quantities for the best shipping value. The size of the box matters as much as the weight, so don't leave empty slots in your bottle box! Shipping a 1-2 bottles will cost the same as shipping 4-6 bottles in most cases. Shipping a 12-bottle box is usually only $3-5 more than shipping a 4-6 bottle box.
  • Re-delivery and returns are the responsibility of the customer.
