Dressler Estate

Cider

Our philosophy is to take a winemaker’s approach to making cider. We focus on allowing the fruit to shine. Our flagship ciders, Modern Still and Modern Sparkling, feature fruit from Lancaster County. We are also able to partner with other orchards across the state thanks to Pennsylvania being the fourth largest apple growing state in the country.

Modern Still

A 750mL bottle of Dressler Estate's Modern Still cider.

Modern Still has exceptional clarity and a pale straw color. An apple-forward aroma has notes of fresh fruit creating a crisp and refreshing flavor. Best enjoyed at cellar temperature (55° F) in a wine or Belgian beer glass.

Available year round at local retailers.

Modern Sparkling

A 750mL bottle of Dressler Estate's Modern Sparkling cider.

Modern Sparkling is bottle conditioned in a pét-nat style creating earthy aromas, a slight haze and stream of fine bubbles. The velvety mouthfeel carries a hint of spice. Best served chilled in a wine flute or tulip glass.

Available year round at local retailers.

North Star Heritage

Seven varieties were sourced exclusively from North Star Orchard in Cochranville, Pennsylvania to create this small batch. Only 50 bottles were produced and served at a seated workshop held at North Star Orchard.

King in Arms

First of a series that will explore the subtleties of barrel aged cider. Fermented and aged in a Manatawny Still Works barrel that housed whiskey then rum. Soft oaky notes give this cider warm and spicy aromas.

Celebrating the rich history of Downingtown and Pennsylvania, we named this cider after one of three Downingtown taverns in the 1800s. Complimenting our state’s history, the use of a Manatawny Still Works barrel is a nod to the vibrant community of makers.

Limited release was available at East Branch Brewing Company.

Great Road

Second in our series exploring the subtleties of barrel aged cider. Aged for three months in a Manatawny Still Works whiskey barrel. The warming qualities of whiskey are present in this cider and the subtle oak rounds out the experience.

This cider gets its name from the colloquial term for Lancaster Avenue, the Great Road. Complimenting our state's history, the use of a Manatawny Still Works barrel is a nod to the vibrant community of makers.

Limited release available at Bottle Room and East Branch Brewing Company.
