A different cider experience
Apples and Mother Nature make the cider, not machines. Different apples bring unique flavors to the ciders they are in. Carriage House Ciders have more going on than simple sweetness. Cider can be as interesting and complex as fine wine, as light and enjoyable as Champagne.
CHC sparkling ciders are made from just three ingredients: fresh pressed apple juice, yeast and a little bit of added sugar. All CHC ciders are aged to bring out their complexity. Most are naturally carbonated in the bottle.
They are great for celebrations or to enhance your food experience. Each variety reflects the character of the apples — tart, bitter and sweet — blended just so to highlight your enjoyment.
If you enjoy new experiences, these ciders are for you.
Welcome to Carriage House Ciders (CHC for short). We are a small, family-owned craft cidery located in an historic carriage house in Benton Harbor, MI. Long known as the fresh produce capital of the US, our areas has the perfect soil and climate for growing apples, including the many rare antique apples used in making our ciders.
CHC is dedicated to serving our community and helping put Southwest Michigan on the quality cider map. We celebrate diversity in our community and in the ciders we craft. CHC hopes to grow by producing extraordinary ciders so we can create enjoyment for you and jobs for our neighbors.
We sincerely hope you enjoy your CHC cider experience.
