Nomad Cider


Nomad Cider: 6.5% ABV

Nomad cider is a semi-sweet cider with a fresh picked apple aroma, followed by a bright fresh apple flavor. The crisp carbonation is compliments by a balance of apple sugars and tannins that give it a full, but light and refreshing mouthfeel.

All apples used in Nomad are grown on Old Mission Peninsula in Traverse City Michigan. The apples travel less than 15 miles from the orchard to the cider press. A blend of Cortland, Northern Spy, McIntosh, Baldwin, Greening, Ida Red and Red Delicious are used in creating Nomad Cider.


Cherry Nomad : 6.5% ABV

The blend of apples and cherries used to create Cherry Nomad is harmonious. The rich flavor of Montmorency and Balaton tart cherries compliments the complex apple flavors used to make this cider. The blend has subtle complexities of a fine with encapsulated in a bright, refreshing cider.

The tart cherries are separately fermented from the apples and then judiciously blended to create this fine cherry cider. Like the apples used in Nomad, all the cherries are harvested from the orchards that surround the cidery on Old Mission Peninsula.


Nomad Dry Hard Cider – 6.5% ABV

Nomad cider is a dry cider with a fresh cut apple aroma, full body and dry finish. Nomad is the perfect combination of craft and nature. Multiple apple varieties round out a mouthful of fresh apples and crisp nose that is remarkably refreshing.
