We use all US grown apple for our fresh pressed cider. Each batch has the perfect blend of varieties to achieve the taste we are famous for.

Yes! All Zeigler's beverages are gluten free.

At the request of retailers, some varieties of Zeigler's Apple Cider are formulated to have a "limited shelf stability", meaning they can be kept at room temperature for a very short time period. These varieties of apple cider must be returned to refrigeration as soon as possible after purchase to maintain freshness and flavor.

Zeigler's Apple Cider is a pasteurized product so it does not have the normal bacterial flora that would be required for natural fermentation. It also contains a commonly used preservative for added food safety which would serve to inhibit bacterial growth. Zeigler's Apple Cider would likely not be a good choice for the home production of hard cider.

Use of a commonly used preservative (Potassium sorbate) adds an additional level of safety as Zeigler's Apple Cider moves through today's very complicated supermarket distribution channels.

Apple Cider is the juice resulting from the pressing of fresh, whole apples. It retains much of the pulp of the apple, which gives it a characteristic brown, cloudy appearance. Apple cider is full of many of the natural nutritional benefits of a whole apple, including rich antioxidant flavonoids. Apple Juice is filtered to remove all the apple pulp, resulting in a clear, and golden fruit juice.
