What is ACE Pineapple Hard Cider?

ACE Pineapple Hard Cider is a semisweet beverage that is made with apples and real Hawaiian pineapples .

This brand of cider was inspired by the House’s family visits to Hawaii. It was founded by Jeffery House who moved from the U.K. to the U.S.A in the 1970s where he’d later find himself working for a company who made apple cider in Sonoma County, CA.

The love for making apple cider and his love for the islands of Hawaii would lead him to creating his own pineapple cider business in 1993. Becoming the first family-owned cidery in the U.S.

ACE Pineapple Cider Review

The ACE Pineapple Hard Cider is this year’s must do drink at Epcot’s Flower & Garden Festival.

It’s invigorating, not too sweet and a great Summer or Spring refresher for cider enthusiasts.

Pineapple Hard Cider

Although it is sweeter than your standard apple cider, the sweetness is not overpowering where it takes away from the taste.

It’s a cider that stand on its own and is one that I definitely recommend if you’re ever at Epcot during the spring festival.

I also recommend pairing it with something spicy to balance the flavor as I did with the Pineapple Dog in the Hawaiian booth at the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival.

How much alcohol is in Ace Pineapple Hard Cider?

The pineapple juices are added to an already fermented apple base to yield a 5% ABV cider that produces a pleasant pineapple nose and a semi-sweet initial taste with a tart finish.
