"The cider industry is building jobs and a stronger economy."
- Colin Schilling
TRADITIONAL BREWING, INNOVATIVE PACKAGING
Three years ago, Colin Schilling quit his day job and started making hard cider.
“I really wanted to take a passion of mine and turn it into a business,” Schilling said.
Today, Schilling Hard Cider is on the leading edge of the fast-growing hard cider industry thanks to its emphasis on innovation and sustainability while maintaining the core business values of Colin’s Great-Great-Grandfather August Schilling, founder of the Schilling Spice Company.
They only use 100 percent fresh-pressed apples from eastern Washington and never back sweeten their products. This means patrons can enjoy a hard cider without artificial sweeteners, colors, or ingredients. They source nearly all of their other ingredients from Washington, too.
For Schilling Hard Cider, the business is more than just a company. It’s a community of employees who love cider, love food and love — and want to protect — the great outdoors.
