Big Fish Cider Divider - Fish

Real. Craft. Cider.

We make ciders using locally-grown apples and traditional techniques to create completely new flavors. Our cider is available in a range of off-dry to semi-sweet blends, as well as seasonal offerings.

Big Fish has won multiple best in class, gold, silver, and bronze awards at the Great Lakes Cider and Perry Competition. We have also won both the Good Food Award and a Made in Virginia Award.

Our Ciders and Process

High-quality ciders begin as high-quality fresh apple juice and to get that quality juice, we press apples on-site and many of those apples are harvest from our orchards right here in Highland County. We ferment “slow and cold” to best preserve the essence of the apples and then age our ciders post-fermentation, allowing the flavors to mature. Several of our true ciders (those made from just apple) are fermented “single variety” and blended post-fermentation. Our ciders are naturally gluten-free.
