Black Mountain Cider & Mead

104 eastside dr #307 black mountain nc 28711

Black Mountain Cider + Mead crafts dry cider and session mead from local apples and honey in an old furniture factory nestled among the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western NC.

We ferment cider in small batches blended from heirloom apples to make cider that is real, never filtered, pasteurized, or tainted. With mead, we focus on lower-gravity sessionable meads (also called hydromels).
