Our Line Up
Consider the apple. No other fruit is so simple yet so full of possibility. None comes close in its ability to pack so much flavor into so compact a package. No wonder, then, that we’re utterly obsessed with this little powerhouse of a fruit. Ever since we pressed our first pure, organic little beauty and extracted the liquid gold inside, we’ve been laser-focused on one goal: to make the best damn cider there is.
We know that’s a lofty ambition. Which is why we’re stacking the deck in our favor: first, by hand-selecting only the most flavorful organic fruit available, then adding a little imagination. The four ciders in our core lineup each capture a particular apple virtue: the refreshing crispness of The Hatchet; the velvety creaminess of The Pitchfork; the heady richness of The Anvil; and the subtle earthiness of The Washboard. Whichever way you go, it’s a wake-up call for the taste buds.
Organic apples have to work harder, investing their energy in flavor, not size. And we work harder, too—hand-selecting the right mix of fruit, then blending it for just the right balance of sweet and tart.
What we love about pears is their creaminess. But pears can be cloyingly sweet. The trick is capturing just the right amount of creamy without sacrificing the tart and crisp.
We love cider. We love bourbon. The Anvil is our way of bringing two great flavors together in a perfect blend of tart, crisp apple cider and rich, smoky bourbon flavor.
Rootbeer was one of Robert’s first loves. Inventing stuff was another. At age 11, he created his own imaginary beverage company called “The California Boys Rootbeer Company”, and even designed the labels for it. Fast-forward almost 20 years, and Robert’s idea is back, but all grown up. Maybe The Washboard symbolizes father and son’s lifelong passion for beverages, but the simpler truth is Robert remembered back to his 11-year-old self and said, “Why not?”
