About

This cider represents the largest amount of heirloom cider fruit used in any cider brand sold in the USA! Excelsior Imperial Apple boasts wonderful acidity, complex yet smooth tannins, light molasses/raisin/caramel notes, and a delightful fresh apple aroma. This is the ORIGINAL imperial cider in a 6 pack. It’s also by far the best-tasting imperial cider made!
