Blue Bee Ciders
At Blue Bee Cider, we aim to create balanced ciders true to their Virginia roots from a culinary perspective and true to the fruit from a cidermaking one. Each apple variety ferments differently, creating its own flavors which vary year to year depending on weather conditions. Blue Bee Ciders are never chapitalized (it’s so sunny in the South, who needs to add sugar?) and never watered down. We use raw juice and ferment it straight off the press.

Blue Bee Cider makes ciders blended from heirloom Virginia apple varieties. We have four semi-sparkling ciders: CHARRED ORDINARY, a dry, old-fashioned cider that pairs well with salty hams and other traditional Virginia fare; and ARAGON 1904, which includes a few modern apples to create a lighter, more fruit forward off-dry cider. HOPSAP SHANDY, a hop-infused cider, and MILL RACE BRAMBLE, infused with raspberries and blackberries, are seasonal ciders usually released in mid to late summer. ROCKY RIDGE RESERVE, a cask-aged cider, is still and unfiltered in and old-fashioned style. HARVEST RATION is our dessert cider fortified with brandy distilled from our own special blend of bittersweet apples.
