CIDER IS

OUR PASSION

We manufacture high quality craft ciders. Our ciders are made with passion, using carefully selected traditional cultivars of apples from Polish orchards, with care for every small detail at every stage of production.

The Cidery

Chyliczki Cidery was established in 2014 as a family enterprise, and it has had such a character ever since. Our key policies are: quality of primary products, crafting, and time necessary for every must to gain its full flavours. In line with this philosophy, apple musts are made once a year, during the time when apples reach maximum ripeness on trees, then they ferment with traditional production methods used for sparkling wines, and eventually ripen for many months. For our musts we use apples coming from old Mazovian orchards without any intensive chemical protection allowing for obtaining ripe products, but this way these small apples get extremely intense aromas and flavours. Although the raw product quality is the key to the cider quality, the values could not be transferred to the beverage without giving it enough time. The process of production in our cidery takes from 8 months to several years, as the apple is a fruit which likes to ripen.

About Us

The cidery was built on the passion of Dariusz and Dominika’s (father and daughter in private life) family and of their friends - Piotr’s family. Joining their forces and complementary professional experiences, and not only these, allowed to create a company which is a passion of every one of them. It must be added that - as it usually is in family companies - the cidery also consists of the close relatives of Dariusz, Dominika, and Piotr, who continuously support the Chyliczki brand.

Dariusz has been running a family ornamental plant nursery for many years, but it was over a dozen years of experience in home production of liqueurs, wines, and ciders that helped establish the cidery. Dariusz has been making ciders since 2014 when the first must of Stary Sad was made, taking care of proper selection of apple cultivars, and controlling the whole process so that he could be proud of every must. Dariusz is still looking for new cider types and styles, thanks to which Lodowa Gruszka (Ice Perry) cider, Sweet Oak cider or Chmielony Sad (Hoped Orchard) cider were created as the first such ciders in Poland.

Piotr - a passionate fruit farmer with an old-established tradition which can be traced back over 4 generations. He has been running a fruit press house for many years, focusing on the most precious, in his opinion, raw product – the apple. Based on his experiences, Piotr is responsible for the selection of the best apples in the cidery, from the ripening stage, through the collection stage, to the pressing process control. Piotr knows every apple inside out.

Dominika Working as a solicitor by day, Dominika is a fan of good cuisine and - which is even more important - of good ciders. These interests led to a willingness to establish a small cidery, which was launched in 2014 as a small family brand of Cydr Chyliczki. Although frequent tasting is a part of the job for everyone in the team, Dominika's main task is to take care of the cidery formalities.
