Here at Big Hill, we grow, press and ferment our ciders on site. We aren’t working with concentrates or “natural flavorings.” Our cider is a locally grown and hand crafted product.
This cider sets the standard with a bright, fruit forward flavor profile. No added sugars or flavors, just carefully selected apple varieties that are grown, pressed and fermented here at Big Hill. Available year round.
To elevate this cider’s bright, citrusy personality, we’ve dry-hopped it, using a blend of columbus, centennial & cascade hops – the legendary “three C’s.” Fresh lemongrass focuses the hop overtones and enhances the complex flavors.
For this summer seasonal, we’ve blended hard cider with fresh apple cider to give a little hint of sweetness and a great natural apple aroma. Available May through September.
Our Barrel Aged Reserve Cider is a unique blend of traditional cider apples fermented and aged in whiskey and brandy barrels.
Big Hill is located in the heart of Apple Country along the South Mountain: a northern extension of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Our facilities are just north of historic Gettysburg and only a few miles away from the Appalachian Trail.
The area is known for it’s unique microclimate and soil types that cater perfectly to apple production. We are home to some of the best apples in the country.
Big Hill was founded by Troy and Ben, two independent farmers looking to make darn good ciders. Big Hill began in the Spring of 2013 when we poured concrete in what is now our Ciderworks building. At this time, we offer sales by appointment only, please contact us if you would like to come out and visit. We look forward to expanding our operation to an on site tasting room so that you all can come by and visit us one day. Until then, we hope you enjoy our cider at your local pub.
We recommend to call ahead for availability of bottles or draft as some taps change frequently.
On site sales by appointment only.
