Woodchuck ciders are gluten-free. I like the Granny Smith one the best.

I vote Woodchuck, too.

I had no idea it was gluten free for the longest time, too. My boyfriend buys it a lot, and I just assumed it would have gluten in it, so I never went anywhere near it. One day he decided to read the label and he said "Hey, Liz, this stuff is gluten-free!"

It says so right on the bottle, haha.

Well now at least I can pretend to be drinking beer with all my friends, lol. I like both the original and the Granny Smith, but the Granny Smith is a lot more tart, so if you're not a big fan of tart, I'd stick to the original. The bf hates the Granny Smith stuff, so I ended up having to drink the rest of his six pack. Cryin' shame ;)

There's also Woodpecker and Hornsby's. Pear and rasberry flavos too. Hard apple cider just seems too white zinfidel for me. It's on the sweet side.

best regards, lm

Do check on the Hornsby's I couldn't find their website, if they have one, but I did find an awful lot of sites stating that it is not safe for us. If I can find anything from the actual company I will post back.

Try Strongbow- it is made in Great Britain, I think. It is a dry cider, so not nearly as sweet as Woodchuck.

Marcia-
Diagnosed Celiac based on equivocal results on blood seriology tests, did not have a biopsy due to already eating gluten free (I didn't know any better at the time to keep eating gluten until all tests could be done).

Diagnosis came 3 months after the birth of my first child at age 31 (I believe childbirth was my trigger).

Gluten Free since 8/06

Genetic testing revealed:
I have one copy of DQ2 (DQA1 05/DQB1 02)

Son- 3 years old, so far not showing any signs of digestive issues and does eat gluten- fingers crossed!

Second baby born after I have been gluten free for 2 1/2 years- a healthy boy weighing in at 9 pounds at birth!

I just bought a hard cider it says gluten free on the label. I will have to see what it is. Also most orchard hard ciders are going to be alright as they are just apple ciders. At the end of this month we are going to take a trip to a local orchard with their own cider and hard cider. YUM


Here is the letter from the makers of Hornsby


Thank you for contacting us. We appreciate your interest in Hornsbys.


In response to your inquiry, this product does contain a trace amount of barley, therefore they contain trace amounts of gluten.


We hope this information is helpful and appreciate you giving us this opportunity to answer your question. It is our further hope you can continue to enjoy our fine products for many more years to come.


Sincerely,

Hornsbys

I like Doc's Hard Pear Cider. The same brand also has apple and framboise (raspberry/apple).

Trader Joe's has two different hard ciders - I've tried them both and like them very much. Also, they're labeled gluten-free. :)

I just phoned Fish Brewing Company in Olympia Washington....They make two fantastic ciders under the Spire's Label: An apple hard cider and a pear hard cider. Both are wonderful - smooth and flavorful, but not too sweet. I have yet to try their Dark & Dry.... The rep said that their ciders had been tested by the University of Neb and are all gluten free. YEAH! http://www.fishbrewing.com/ciders.html

Cheers! :D

I'm a big fan of Doc's, Original Sin and Strongbow - Woodchuck is a little on the sweet side for me.

A warning: I just recently tried J.K. Scrumpy's, which, despite being labeled gluten-free seems to have caused a massive reaction - two-hour food coma and much brain fog. This was on a day when everything else I consumed was made by me in my own kitchen, except for a bottle of Bard's beer, which I've been drinking happily for some time. I don't have any other known food allergies, so I'm a bit perplexed.

Also, Hornsby's is definitely not ok - I'm not the most super sensitive, but one bottle definitely set me off when I drank it without checking first thinking "it's cider, it'll be fine".

Anyone know of yummy gluten free hard cider??? :)

My favorite is defintely Blackthorn Cider-it is a dry cider and great for those who dislike a dry cider. I am also a beer fan and since I am not a fan of the gluten free beers on the market it seems to satisfy my craving.
Also a note on Hornsbys cider NOT A GOOD IDEA I drank a couple one night and woke up at 3am with huge stomach cramps and reflux(does anyone else get these symptoms?). I have also heard the Spires Cider is great.

Hello All,

Despite the post about our JK'S Scrumpy cider I would like to assure you that it is naturally Gluten Free. The cider is made At Almar Orchard in Flushing MI. It is made only from apples grown organically on that Orchard. Two ingredients Apple Juice and Yeast.
