    Store in a cool dry place. Basements or root cellars are great storage areas if your fridge space is limited.

    No our cider is not pasteurized, it is UV treated. It still kills bacteria without using the heat of traditional pasteurization.

    If properly refrigerating your cider, it will typically stay fresh for 7 - 10 days. Please always refrigerate your cider
