Meet The Apples

Our fresh-pressed juice blends start with the best Washington-grown apple varietals such as Gala, Fuji, and Honeycrisp. We then blend in juice from French and English cider apples. These lesser-known heritage apples have a darker color, pronounced tannin profile, and tart flavor that is perfect for cider-making. Our apple blends aim to capture the modern flavors of Pacific Northwest cider with the complexity and mouthfeel of traditional European ciders.

Profile: Very sweet
Extremely juicy, Crisp, cream colored flesh. Called "sweets" for a reason.

Profile: Mild sweet flavor
Somewhat Juicy, Crisp, creamy yellow flesh. The royal of the apples.

Profile: Tart with a hint of sweet and juicy
Crisp, creamy yellow and reddish flesh with a red glo center. This one is out of this world.

Profile: Complex, sweet-tart flavor
Juicy Super-crisp yellow flesh. If you want to follow on the gram just look for Cris P.

Profile: Usually smaller apples
These heritage European varietals—such as Kingston Black, Foxwhelp and Dabinnet—are small, tart, and add amazing tannic quality to cider. While not great for eating, they make for absolutely delicious cider!
