🍾We do everything we can to be a zero-waste company, and this includes all of the leftover pumice from our juicing process.
🍎After the fruit is crushed and juiced, the pumice is saved in our apple bins. We take the pumice to our local pig farms and these lucky piggies get to chow down on some of the best fruit in the state 🐖
🌳 This complete cycle is just part of the farming practices we do to create a sustainable and community building company.
🙏WE ARE SO THANKFUL for the year of the Harrison- the trees, the cider, the awards and of course our English bulldog Harrison @king_and_harry_
🌳We were thrilled to plant many Harrison trees this year. The innovation with growing all of our cider apple trees at this elevation of 6,130 ft is a rewarding challenge.
🍾The exciting launch of our Reserve and Specialty bottle lines brought in a myriad of exciting awards. Harrison won #1 Gold Best in Class in the Heritage Cider Sweet category at the Great Lakes International Cider and Perry compeittion @glintcap and Platinum at Great American cider competition.
🏆Harrison also brought home a Good Food Award for 2021 @goodfoodawards
🍎 Today is National Apple Cider Day!
This may mean mulled cider or just apple juice to some, but to us it is just another APPLE day and we support everything apple.
😍Check out these Jonathan apples from our harvest! They are next in line for juicing with nearly 80 more bins to go. 🍎🍎🍎🍎🍎
❄At Snow Capped Cider, we have a very unique situation as cider makers.
We do not have to source apples from other farms to represent our Colorado Ciders.
👩🌾We grow, press and process from our own century old farm. We are a single source beverage and we juice once per year for our products. Our family has been growing fruit for almost 110 years in the surface creek area of Colorado.
Fruitgrowing naturally lent itself to the hobby of cidermaking about 10 years ago, and this hobby became a passion for craft cider that we are proud to share with you. ❄🍎🌳🥂...
🥂Celebrate with cider this holiday season, our Gold Rush brings the sparkle!
🏆We already knew this cider was fabulous...but GLINTCAP @glintcap confirmed when our French and English apple blend won Gold Best in Class.
"Coveted cider apples deliver with brilliant golden hue, tantalizing ripe fruit character. Clean quintessential medium tannin's only produced from English and French varietals. Panning with complexity and a striking mouth feel. Sweet richess is found upfront leading to off dry semi sparkling finish."

🍎The article dives into the beginnings of Snow Capped Cider as our hobby 10 years ago, and how it has blossomed into ciders that are putting Colorado on the map and rivaling the best of France and England.
👩🌾 From Kari: “Honestly, it’s just loving food and beverage the way I do and understanding what I can do to put Colorado on the map. I’m very passionate about teaching the consumers about high-end ciders and about the flavors we can produce. I want people to understand cider as they do wine, with terroir, that what I can do with apples at this elevation is something that’s unsurpassed.”
