James Creek Cider House


Cider with a Sense of Place

James Creek Ciderhouse makes premium craft ciders from Southern heirloom and cider apple varieties grown in our orchards in

Moore County, North Carolina and other NC family farms within 125 miles of our ciderhouse. We planted about 50 vintage apple

trees in the winter of 2009 and now have about 7 acres with over 65 varieties of apples, including such Southern favorites as

Kinnaird’s Choice, American Golden Russett, Red Limbertwig, Hewe’s Crab, Blacktwig, Stayman and Yates.

Each harvest yields a distinctive blend of apples, characterized by the spring rains, summer suns, and cool autumn evenings in the

orchards that year. We crush the apples, press out the juice, and ferment it in small batches.

Then we blend these batches to create our signature New World Heritage ciders for the James Creek Cider House label :

Summer Gold,

Harvest Moon, and

Russets & ‘Twigs

And our New World Modern blends for the Stargazer Cider label:

Big Dipper,

Mighty Hunter,

Mighty Hunter Hopped,

Seven Sisters Blackberry,

Prowling Peach and

Gemini Double Dipper  (cider with strawberry-rhubarb).

Now, we also have wonderful barrel-aged ciders with the Stargazer label:

Southern Star — aged in Bourbon barrels

Evening Star — aged in brandy barrels

Winter Solstice — apple-raisin wine aged in rum barrels and infused with cinnamon, nutmeg and clove.

Whereas James Creek ciders are quite wine-like and dry, Stargazer Ciders are more sessionable and often feature cider in

combination with other fruits.
