Throughout the 1800's & early 1900’s, hard apple cider was one of America’s most popular alcoholic beverages with many of the cider recipes being passed on through generations. From generation to generation, the Antanitis family has enjoyed making hard cider and perfecting their family recipe. In 2009, the family decided to take this beloved hobby and turn it into a family business.
