Why dry? 2018-02-24T10:13:47+00:00

Why a Dry Cider
is a Healthier Cider

Until recently, most people associated hard cider with sugary sodas. But today, a new crop of cider is emerging — dry cider. People prefer dry because it’s lighter and more refreshing than the cloyingly sweet stuff. It helps people avoid sugar headaches and the inevitable crash that follows drinking sweet beverages. Yet others claim that cutting out the sugar (often as much as 30g per serving) also cuts down on hangovers.

Most importantly, however, it’s becoming clear that high-carbohydrate/high-sugar diets are at the center of what makes the American way of eating so unhealthy. That’s why, increasingly, drinkers prefer to imbibe alcoholic beverages that are dry — whether it be beer, wine, cocktails, or, YES! cider.

At Kings Highway we make dry cider for all the reasons listed above and a few more.

  • It’s traditional.
    If you let cider ferment naturally all the sugar gets converted to alcohol.

  • It pairs well with food.
    Cider is naturally high in acid, which cuts through fat and pairs better with food than beer or wine.

  • Low Alcohol.
    Cider is typically half the alcohol of wine, meaning you can enjoy more of it without feeling the same way you would with wine.

  • Energizing.
    Cider’s dominant acid is malic acid, which when you drink cider you’ll notice gives you an energetic buzz. Wine’s predominant acid, on the other hand, is tartaric acid, which is more sedating.

  • Supports local agriculture.
    Kings Highway cider uses 100% New York State apples.
