EVERY BOTTLE HONORS THE APPLE
Every apple has a story
Founded in 2016 based on a passion for historic apples.
Founder Kanin Routson has devoted his professional life to seeking and preserving some of the world’s rarest apples. Rooted in this goal, Stoic Cider uses superior apples to create exceptional ciders.
THE CIDER STORY
Kanin began grafting historic apple trees for the family ranch. The first trees were grafted on standard size rootstock and are now at full production age.
The original trees were planted amongst the family's vineyard of grapes. The 'Vineyard Orchard' holds some of Kanin's first grafted trees that are now in full production. These initial apple trees were primarily southwestern heirlooms.
Stoic Cider was founded on the Williamson Valley ranch where Kanin was raised. The company's mission is to create exceptional apples using superior apples.
The First Batch
Stoic Cider's original cider, The First Batch, is offered to the public. This cider was made from heirloom apples from southwestern Colorado.
Stoic Cider wins numerous Gold and Silver medals at the Great Lakes International Cider and Perry Competition, the largest cider competition in the world. Award winners include Dry Season, Meditations, Crimson Gold, and Golden Russet.
