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.

 

The Hatchet

The Hatchet
Apple

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.

The Pitchfork

The Pitchfork
Pear

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.

The Anvil

The Anvil
Bourbon

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.

The Washboard

The Washboard
Sarsaparilla Vanilla

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?”

Limited Run

Now and then, an idea for a new cider inspires us to go in a different direction. Why not blend delicate anise with some tart organic hard cider? Or create a cider fiesta in a can by combining apples, hot peppers and lime? The whole point of our limited-run line up is to go where our inspiration takes us. But don’t wait till long: these limited-run ciders are around only while they last, then disappear forever. Maybe.

The Pulley

The Pulley
Absinthe

Our production run may be limited on this one, but not the flavor: a hint of licorice-flavored anise adds unlimited depth to our signature crisp, tart hard apple cider.

The Crowbar

The Crowbar
Habanero Lime

Ok, even we admit this one is a bit out there. We started with our own organic hard cider and then went a little crazy—with some lime and a few fiery habanero peppers. Think of it as a portable fiesta in a can. (Yes, we can.)

The Wimble

The Wimble
Rhubarb Gose

The Wimble is our cidery take on “gose” an ancient German beer style.  Tart, briny, and eager to please.

Reserve

Every so often, we craft a hard cider of such inspired creativity that we even impress ourselves. So we created a whole new category in our product line-up called “Reserve”. Each Reserve bottle is individually wrapped, numbered, and signed by our cidermaster, who applies his 30 years of winemaking expertise to producing these extraordinarily distinctive ciders.

Dry Zider

Dry Zider

We make our hard cider in the little town of Healdsburg, in the heart of Sonoma County, a place sometimes associated with another fruit-based beverage. Turns out something amazing happens when we age our crisp, refreshing cider in old oak Zinfandel barrels.

Dry Fuji

Dry Fuji

Our Dry Fuji single-varietal cider is tart and crisp, with rich notes from months of aging in French oak barrels.  So delicate. So delicious.

Apple Brandy

Apple Brandy

Apple Brandy is what happens when you take our finest organic cider, double distill it, and age it for over a year in small oak casks.  Heavenly!
