Frequently Asked Questions
What is Fire Cider?
Fire Cider is a spicy, sweet, and tangy apple cider vinegar (ACV) tonic infused with roots, fruits, and spices.
What's in it?
To the base of certified organic apple cider vinegar, we've added whole, raw, certified organic oranges, lemons, onions, ginger, horseradish, habañero pepper, garlic, and turmeric. Everything you’d find in a grocery store!
Does it have the "Mother"?
Yes! We start with raw, unfiltered, non-pasteurized organic apple cider vinegar that contains the “mother," strands of proteins, enzymes, and friendly bacteria that give the product a murky, cobweb-like appearance. The “mother” is considered healthy to consume.
Is there any alcohol in your tonics?
Nope. While some people confuse it with hard cider, our tonic is non-alcoholic. It does mix well with cocktails, however, so if that’s your jam, check out our recipes for our signature Fire Cider cocktails!
Is Fire Cider gluten-free?
None of the ingredients in Fire Cider contain gluten. If you’re extremely sensitive, however, be aware that while we make every batch of Fire Cider ourselves, we make it in a mixed-use facility, so we’re unable to include a gluten-free claim on our labels.
Is Fire Cider organic?
You betcha! All of our ingredients are organic and we’ve been Certified Organic by the USDA. You’ll even find their Organic Logo on our bottles. You can find out more about the USDA’s Organic certification process here.
Is Fire Cider Vegan?
While our Original and African Bronze varieties are not, our Fire Cider Honey-Free has been Certified Vegan by Vegan Action. You can learn more about vegan certification here.
Does Fire Cider contain sugar?
While Fire Cider doesn’t contain any added refined sugars, the citrus fruits and honey used in our recipe give it 3 grams of sugar per one-tablespoon serving. Unsweetened Fire Cider, which doesn’t contain honey, has 1 gram of sugar per serving from that same citrus.
How should I store Fire Cider?
Fire Cider’s main ingredients are apple cider vinegar and honey, two of nature’s greatest preservatives. This means our tonics are shelf-stable and don’t need to be refrigerated. We keep our bottle tightly capped in a cool, dry, easy-to-reach spot in the kitchen.
