Pure. Crisp. Gluten Free.

A drink committed to local.


Hazlitt’s Cider Tree stands apart from all of the high quality ciders offered by Finger Lakes cideries in the regionEach of our premium hard ciders are crafted using freshly pressed local apples and Champagne yeast for fermentation to give each one a crisp, unique, pure taste.

Our hard cider is made in the heart of the Finger Lakes Region in Naples, New York, using select apples grown in our own backyard. The labels and the rest of the packaging are from nearby too, and even the bottles are made within 100 miles of home! We work hard to create high quality cider we are proud of and, more importantly, cider we love to drink. You can find us on any weekend hiking through the woods or hanging by the lake most likely in the company of good friends enjoying a cold, crisp Cider Tree.​ See for yourself why Cider Tree ranks amongst the top hard ciders in what Finger Lakes cideries offer.

We’re sure you’ll love it too.
