This family-owned cidery sources quality ingredients from throughout the region to create crisp, distinct ciders worth sipping on your own and sharing with friends. The flagship ciders feature Lancaster County’s finest apples, grown and pressed just miles away from Dressler Estate’s Downingtown operation.
Dressler also partners with other orchards from across the state. With a focus on taking a winemaker’s approach to making cider, the fruit is able to play a starring role. Flagship ciders include Modern Still, a 7.3% ABV, bone dry and fruit-forward with bright acidity. Modern Sparkling is an earthy, slightly hazy cider that makes for a great celebratory drink.
There are also many seasonal ciders to try out, so be sure to always check out the latest offerings from Dressler throughout the calendar year. Be sure to connect with Dressler at their various events, too. They pop up at spots all over the region, and ciders are available at many restaurants and bars throughout Chester, Delaware, and Montgomery Counties, and even as far as Philadelphia, too.
