Not your standard cider.

Seattle Cider Company is the city’s first cidery since prohibition, bringing true craft cider back to Seattle. Bridging the gap between wine and beer with flavorful, small-batch cider, Seattle Cider’s initial offerings – Dry and Semi-Sweet – break the mold of overly sweet cider, bringing the natural flavors of Washington apples to the forefront.

Cider Is Simple

Naturally gluten free and made from a custom blend of fresh pressed, locally grown apples, Seattle Cider’s products are handcrafted with all natural ingredients, successfully distinguishing themselves from the mass market cider found in stores today.

  • Seattle Cider Company

    We use a custom blend of fresh pressed Washington grown apples to create our cider.

  • Seattle Cider Company

    A strand of English ale yeast is used to achieve Seattle Cider’s unique flavor profile.

  • Seattle Cider Company

    We use pure cane sugar - not artificial sweeteners or adjuncts - to achieve the perfectly subtle sweetness found in most of our ciders.

  • Seattle Cider Company

    All natural flavors such as spices, pumpkin, raisins and more are introduced during fermentation to create unique seasonal ciders.

The Cider Process

Step 1: Picking & Pressing The Apples

Once ripe, apples are handpicked from orchards in Eastern Washington. Apples are ground into a pulp then pressed, creating a sugary juice called “must.”

Step 2: Fermentation

In order to eliminate unwanted wild yeast and bacteria, the must is treated with sulfites. After 24 hours, a cultured yeast can be safely pitched, commencing fermentation. Once all the sugars have converted into alcohol, leaving little to no residual sugar, fermentation is complete. The yeast is harvested for future use.

Step 3: Clarification

The cider is then run through a filter to help with clarification.

Step 4: Post-Fermentation

Now its time to carbonate and and at times, back sweeten. This is the process of adding sugar back into the cider. The amount of residual sugar in a cider is measured in Brix. Once perfected, the cider ages in the tank for at least two weeks. 

Step 5: Can, Bottle & Keg

Enjoy! Our ciders are packaged and sent off to be enjoyed throughout the Pacific Northwest. Find them in 16-ounce cans, 22-ounce bottles and on draft.
