Liquid Alchemy Ciderworks is proud to announce that in addition to having 2 Certified Cider Professionals on staff,  in 2018 our ciders won 4 medals in competition  and are honored to be among the nearly 1000 cideries in the United States to receive this level of acknowledgement. Taste some amazing flavors from fresh-pressed apples, from local family-owned orchards. After years of perfecting our cidermaking skills,  we hit our stride in 2021 and in 2020 Deeply-Rooted won a Platinum medal  as one of the top 15 ciders in the Country and in 2021 we won 2 additional medals and the title of "2021 Delaware Cidery of the Year" .   Hard work and attention to detail finally resulted in some pretty major hard cider honors ----- and little old Liquid Alchemy Ciderworks has made a name for itself.

The Light Cide(r)

Local Lancaster County, Pennsylvania apples top the chart for some of the best tasting in the country.  We are blessed to have a relationship with a with a 100+ year old orchard working on their 5th generation to make our proprietary blend (so don't ask, it’s a secret).  We marry this fresh pressed juice with some local honey to increase the ABV slightly and make a very bold, tasty, "light" amber cider.

The Dark Cide(r)

Welcome to the The-Light-Cider's darker twin. We start with the same amazing local apples and add a special caramelized beet sugar to create a very rich profile reminiscent of an imperial stout. We raise the ABV to the 7.5% range for a deep, dark experience that most of you never thought a hard cider could bring you.

2020 Top 15 Hard Ciders in the US

Historically, the term root-beer has gone back thousands of years and encompass both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.  Early indigenous Americans used sassafras root, sarsaparilla root, sweet birch, vanilla and molasses to make their beverages and we took inspiration from these early Americans to develop Deeply-Rooted.  Combining roots, barks and spices in a caramelized base has created a wonderful, earthy hard cider sure to take you back to the good ole' days but with a nice adult twist.
