Since debuting their first cider, Gold Top, they have become the top craft cider in Texas and the top cider brand in Texas grocery. With each new release, they bring more newly-minted cider drinkers into the fold and to keep up with demand, they moved into their state-of-the-art facility in Southeast Austin, where most of Austin Eastciders ciders are made today.
Influenced by tradition, Austin Eastciders uses real cider apple juice concentrate sourced from Europe. Unlike culinary apples, cider apples are full of tannins that create astringency and a more complex flavor profile. These cider apples are then married with apples from the Pacific Northwest for a perfectly-balanced cider. In addition to using quality, real ingredients like Texas honey, hop flowers, and pineapple and blood orange juice, the recipe includes white wine yeast to bring out the sparkly and effervescent qualities their ciders have become known for. With a range of styles that appeal to beer, wine and cider drinkers alike, Austin Eastciders lineup of ciders are both gluten-free and certified kosher.
