Tips

  • How long does unopened non-alcoholic sparkling apple cider last? The precise answer to the question depends to a large extent on storage conditions - store unopened bottles of sparkling apple cider in a cool, dark area.
  • To extend the shelf life of unopened sparkling apple cider, keep unopened sparkling apple cider away from direct sources of heat or light.
  • How long does unopened sparkling apple cider last at room temperature? Properly stored, unopened sparkling apple cider will generally stay at best quality for about 2 to 3 years when stored at room temperature, although it will usually remain safe to drink after that.
  • Is unopened sparkling apple cider safe to drink after the "expiration" date on the bottle? Yes, provided it is properly stored and the bottle is undamaged - commercially packaged sparkling apple cider will typically carry a " Best By," "Best if Used By," "Best Before", or "Best When Used By" date but this is not a safety date, it is the manufacturer's estimate of how long the unopened sparkling apple cider will remain at peak quality.
  • Storage times shown are for best quality only - after that, the unopened sparkling apple cider's color or taste may change, but in most cases, it will still be safe to consume if it has been stored properly and the bottle is not damaged.
  • How to tell if sparkling apple cider is bad? If sparkling apple cider develops an off odor, flavor or appearance, it should be discarded.
