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.
