Eden Specialty Cider
Eden Specialty Ciders are passionate about the quality of flavor that comes from unique apple varieties grown by local, small-scale orchards in Vermont. They produce a wide range of ciders, from driest to sweetest, with different methods of production, using single varieties and blends. Consistent through everything Eden Specialty Ciders do is a commitment to supporting small-scale family orchards, to the use of holistic and regenerative orcharding practices, and rare tannic and heirloom apple varieties grown expressly for cider making.
Eden Ciders was founded in 2007 by Eleanor & Albert Leger when they purchased an abandoned dairy farm in West Charleston and made an experimental batch of Ice Cider in the basement of their home. Slowly, they expanded the team to include amazing people like head orchardist Ben Applegate and built connections with other Vermont orchards passionate about sustainable agriculture and working with their terroir. Eden Cider's mission is to support the local economy and preserve the working landscape.
