Flagship Ciders


The Brut

A pure apple cider, crafted from a blend of several locally-grown Northwest apples and fresh pressed and fermented cool to retain those distinctive apple aromatics.

On the palate we strive for depth and a pure expression of the fruit, balancing the apple’s crispness with a touch of its sweetness for a refreshing yet pleasingly complex cider.


The Guardian Angel

Our blueberry and pomegranate cider was created to celebrate the bounty of Northwest summer berries.

It offers deep garnet purple color, brambly berry notes, and fresh fruit characteristics of both the apple and blueberry, with hints of pomegranate added for a zippy kick. This cider is semi sweet, perfectly balanced and refreshing.

- Erin James, CIDERCRAFT Magazine

"Alter Ego puts an emphasis on mouthfeel and aroma, characteristics commonly appreciated in wine."
