Refreshing Hard Cider Starts with
Freshly Pressed Local Apples

Hard ciders from Core Hero feature apples grown on Lopez Island. Apple cranberry and apple cinnamon hard ciders are available at Blossom Grocery and the Galley Restaurant and Lounge (apple cinnamon only).

I'm a one-person business handcrafting ciders the traditional way and in small batches. I use a blend of apples including varieties originally developed in England that I'm now growing in my expanding orchard.

To preserve the Lopez heritage apple trees, I'm grafting rootstock to scionwood from old orchards to keep them alive for another generation.
