About Us

Desert Cider House is Arizona’s oldest craft Cidery, operating since 2016. All of our hard ciders are hand crafted in small batches in Chandler, Arizona. Our ciders are never processed or artificially filtered. We believe in letting them age and clarify as they will, naturally.

We can be found in bars and restaurants all across the state!

Our current year-round lineup includes the following ciders:

Desert Dragon Hard Cider – Our signature hard apple cider is a traditional style hard cider, made with pure apple juice and brown sugar.  It is 6.9% ABV.

DCH Peach – Our peach cider is made with aged apple hard cider blended with pure peach juice. It has a bright and fruity peach nose. DCH Peach is 6.0% ABV.

Cranberry Pomegranate – Cran/Pom is a pure apple hard cider, blended with 100% Cranberry and Pomegranate juices. That’s it.  It is slightly tart, with that wonderful cranberry nip. It has a smooth mouth feel and a light, lingering finish. Delicious and refreshing!  6.0% ABV.

DCH Pear – This is our newest cider and our very first Perry, introduced in January 2020. It is a traditional pear cider, made Goldilocks style, not too sweet and not too dry, it’s just, just, just right. Light on the palate with a distinct pear nose, bright carbonation and a subtle and lingering pear finish. Simple and refreshing! 5.0% ABV.

Seasonal Ciders

Desert Cheer – Desert Cheer was the first seasonal cider we ever produced. It is a hard apple cider, blended with cranberry juice mulled with organic spices, including cinnamon, orange peel, allspice, cloves and ginger. It has a light, mulled cider nose and a red-amber color. The flavor is gently tart but not sour, with distinct mulled spice overtones and it finishes clean, without a lot of lingering aftertaste. Desert Cheer Hard Cider is 6.0% ABV and available during the fall and winter holiday season.

Pumpkin Pie Hard Cider – is a fall seasonal hard apple cider blended with pumpkin spice flavors, reminiscent of that delicious holiday desert. It is lightly carbonated with a crisp,clean finish. 6.0% ABV.

Specialty Ciders

Desert Zephyr Hard Cider – Named after the desert’s gentle breezes, Desert Zephyr is an apple hard cider, blended with locally sourced organic prickly pear juice and orange. It is brightly carbonated with a rose color, very light on the palate, and extremely refreshing! We call it Hard Ciders Softer Side. Desert Zephyr Hard Cider is 6.0% ABV. Because of the delicate nature of the prickly pear juice we use to make it, Desert Zephyr is only available at special events.

Locally crafted – totally drinkable!
