Our first kegging was done in the June of 1994. We wanted to make a fresh, clean cider out of a mixture of 6 different pressed dessert apple varieties, with a slight spritz. ACE APPLE was first introduced in 22 ounce bottles in October 1994 as Black Ace in San Francisco and the Bay Area. It was the California Cider Company’s very first cider, nearly 20 years ago. Our ACE APPLE has an apple nose and a clean dry finish. It tastes like a Sauvignon Blanc. It is made out of 100 per cent apple juice and is all natural, gluten-free and low-calorie like the rest of our cider range. The alcohol is a 5% by volume. ACE APPLE is currently sold in 3 different keg sizes and in 6 packs of 12 ounce bottles. This cider goes well with all pork dishes and seafood as an alternative to the high alcohol of wine and heaviness of beer. 5.0% ABV
JOKER is our driest cider, made from 100% apple juice; it has champagne characteristics, yeasty with an alcohol of 6.9%. It won the 2013, San Diego Cider and Beer Festival and took a Gold Ribbon as the “Best Cider” in the competition. JOKER is popular with beer and wine drinkers and makes a great base for Jomosas, fresh OJ on JOKER over ice or Snakebites, lager and JOKER or Black Satins, stout and JOKER. 6.9% ABV
First released in 1996, this is the first Perry cider made in California. It became very popular very quickly, as it is so refreshing. It is made from apple and pear juices. We use champagne yeast in all our ciders and ferment for 10-14 days. We then cold-filter 4 times and carbonate them before putting into bottles or kegs. The ingredients are all natural juices. It is 5% alcohol by volume with a lovely pear nose and a smooth semi-sweet mouth feel with a dry finish. 5.0% ABV
Inspired by the House Family’s annual visit to the beautiful Hawaiian Islands our Pineapple cider is an ideal drink for tropical hot and humid climates. Our signature drink the Hawaii 5-0 is a mix of Ace Pineapple cider, coconut rum, ice and a garnish of fresh pineapple. This original cider is perfect for a backyard BBQ, or Bacon dishes. 5.0% ABV
This unfiltered addition of ACE is to honor the owner, Jeffrey House’s wife who played Brea Tonnika in the cantina scene in the original Star Wars. Her picture is featured on the bottleneck. This limited edition cider comes in a clear bottle so you can see the vivid orange hue. ACE Space Bloody Orange is out of this world!
