Sweet Juice Dry Cider

Virginia’s first urban cidery, Blue Bee Cider, is located in the historic Scott’s Addition district of Richmond, VA. Our ciders are made with rare and heirloom Virginia apples prized for their tannin, acidity, and flavor.

One of Virginia’s native bees, the Blue Orchard Bee (osmia lignaria), provided the inspiration for our cidery’s name. These hardworking bees are solitary and wild, emerging early in the spring just in time to pollinate apple blossoms.
