About this project

We are One Tree Hard Cider

We plan to manufacture and sell craft Hard Cider. Our Cidery is located in Spokane Valley WA. One Tree is located perfectly between the Cascades and the Rocky Mountains which is great for us and you. We are at the foot of sustainable ingredients which allows us to have freshest produce that goes into our Hard Cider. We can hop in our vehicles and get everything that our Ciders include. We want to be the new face to hard cider; we want to bring you unique craft hard cider with a large flavor profile.  

History

In the Colonial period and up to the middle of the 19th century, cider just meant fermented apple juice. During that time, it was the most popular and important beverage in America. The tradition came to the New World with English settlers, who also brought the seeds for planting orchards. Safer than water and easier and cheaper to produce than beer or wine, cider was typically the first drink of the day. For a variety of reasons, cider's popularity faded. Urbanization and industrialization undermined this rural drink, as did a new wave of immigrants with a thirst for beer. On top of that, pests and cold winters destroyed orchards. But the chief issue that brought cider down, almost forever, was Prohibition. After repeal, the cider apple never regained its gleam.

But over the last 5 years Hard Cider is taken a whole new approach. Craft beer has brought Cider back to life, and that's EXCITING TO US. People care what is in what they eat and drink. They want a large flavor profile and interesting ingredients.

Risks and challenges

Unfortunately there is risk in everything we do. We have limited this risk to identifying what our product line is. Our recipes for our Hard Cider. We have had set backs in the past, and we have learned from those hurdles. We are nearing our last hurdle to get this snowball rolling.

We have confidence that we can obtain all the licensing challenges both local state and federal within 60 days of completion of the kickstarter. Once filed and completed and given the green light we can have product out in little as 30 days.
