Why Cider?

It’s making a comeback. Cider is the original American beverage of choice, but it fell out of favor during Prohibition. We’re joining the national movement to reclaim cider for the States, and what better place to make our mark on Americana culture than in good ole Washington, DC?

Our Pommeau

WHAT THE HECK IS POMMEAU?! Pommeau is a traditional French cordial made by blending raw, unfermented cider with an apple-based distillate (eau de vie) - think of it as the apple version of port wine. Best enjoyed as an aperitif or as an extremely versatile mixer, where pommeau can replace and elevate sweet vermouth in classic cocktails like the Manhattan and Negroni.

OUR PROCESS

How It’s Made

Select

Our home grown ciders start in local orchards. We choose cider apples known for complex flavors. Every production run is different. We grab what’s growing well and will taste great in your cup!

Press

Next, we grind our apples into small bits in a process called milling. Then we’re ready to press! One bushel yields about 3 gallons of delicious juice.

Ferment

We add yeast and other natural ingredients, like honey or local fruit, to our fresh apple juice. Then it’s time to sit back and let nature take her course. The yeast gets to work, turning those natural sugars into alcohol and CO2.

Package & Pour

Once the cider is ready, we package it up in cans and kegs. It’s ready to enjoy now, or we can wait a few months to develop more flavor. Come have a glass with us and take home some 4-packs and a crowler (or two)!
