Frequently Asked Questions.

What is in this Fire Cider stuff? The base is raw, Certified Organic apple cider vinegar and raw wildflower honey. Then we add: Organic Oranges, Organic Lemons, Organic Onions, Organic Ginger, Organic Horseradish, Organic Garlic, Organic Turmeric, and Organic Habanero Pepper.

Is Fire Cider raw? Yes, we use all raw honey, produce and vinegar. Fire Cider is never heated or refrigerated, it is a living, raw, whole foods tonic. Vinegar and honey are nature’s preservatives so we never add anything but what’s listed on the label!

Is Fire Cider organic? We use all organic produce and vinegar. It was not possible to get certified organic honey that was local to us. We chose to buy raw, unpasteurized wildflower honey directly from a local farm.

Is Fire Cider spicy? We get asked this a lot and the answer is: it depends on your love of and tolerance for heat. Fire Cider can be enjoyably warming or wicked spicy! For those who are afraid of the heat, Fire Cider mixes deliciously with lemonade, orange juice, tea and more. It’s still a health tonic, even if you water it down.

Does Fire Cider contain alcohol? No, it does not. It does however, mix well with alcohol if that's your style, so check out our blog or our recipe book for our signature Fire Cider cocktails!

Is Fire Cider gluten free? Yes, all of the ingredients we use are whole raw, gluten free foods that we process ourselves! However, if you are extremely sensitive be aware that we make Fire Cider in a mixed use facility.

What is the shelf life of Fire Cider? According to the FDA, the shelf life is 18 months from bottling. We put a batch code sticker on the bottom of every bottle to tell you when the bottle turns 18 months old. If you need help deciphering it, drop us a line.

How should I store Fire Cider? In an abundance of caution, the FDA feels that you should refrigerate Fire Cider after opening. We don't refrigerate ours, but hey, we live life on the edge.

How much should I take? For a daily dose we recommend about ½ to 1 Tablespoon. We just take a small sip from the bottle. If you feel under the weather you can take that same dose every 3 hours. You can take Fire Cider any time of day; just keep in mind that it does perk you up!

How can I use Fire Cider as a dietary supplement? The components of Fire Cider have been traditionally used in a wide range of healthful applications. Perhaps you can ask your Gramma, a friendly old farmer or your health care professional what they think about Fire Cider! Here are just a few ways to put Fire Cider to work for you, as reported by our customers:

Supports your immune system: We all have a daily shot, and then have a few more throughout the day when we feel the need for more help staying healthy. Don't get too crazy though, take a breather and space out your Fire Cider shots with some thyme or holy basil tea!

Assists with healthy digestion: A shot of Fire Cider after a big meal is a nice boost for your digestive system. It's like Fernet Branca, but without the booze, and with more vinegar-y spice. Ok, it's not much like Fernet.

Had too much to drink? The eye opening effect of a big slug of Fire Cider is a great way to shake off last night’s indulgence! Now go have a big greasy meal, followed by more Fire Cider and a much deserved nap.

Replace coffee: "I tried this on a whim at the Big E because it sounded interesting. I had been trying to cut down on my caffeine intake for a while with little success, but once I started substituting my afternoon coffee with a shot of Fire Cider I found the solution. Lots of energy with no caffeine."
-Doug L in Connecticut

Determine if your kids are really sick, or just trying to stay home: As told by one of our customers- If her son claims to be sick, she offers him Fire Cider. If he refuses, he’s not that sick; if he accepts, he’s really not feeling well and gets to stay home from school, sipping Fire Cider and orange juice.

Cure Boredom: invite your friends to try Fire Cider for the first time! Then check out the video of first-try reaction shots on our Media page. Also, read the label, it’s pretty cool, then visit Brian’s online comic series, where there are hours of entertainment waiting for you!
