Dressler Estate

Cider

Our flagship ciders feature apples grown and pressed in Lancaster County and we also partner with other orchards across Pennsylvania thanks to the fact that it is the fourth largest apple growing state in the country! We take a winemaker’s approach to making cider, focusing on allowing the fruit to shine.

Limited

Wild Smokehouse – 6.8% ABV

This is the next entry in our Wild Series that explores single apple varietals spontaneously fermented in the style of Spanish Sidra. Wild Smokehouse is the successor to our first entry in the series, Wild Jonagold, which honored us with a blue ribbon from the 2020 PA Farm Show. Smokehouse is a Lancaster County native variety discovered as a chance seedling and introduced in 1837. We're proud to say the almost candy-like sweetness and subtle rich flavors of the pre-fermented juice transformed into a bright expressive acidity that uses a touch of carbonation to dance on the palate. Summer Rambo coming mid 2020.

Availability: limited stock at select local retailers including Bottle Room, Bottle Bar East, Bloomsday and more starting the week of Feb 24.

Outpost – 10% ABV
