The Art of Fermentation

Apple cider heritage

Cider was at its peak just over a 100 years ago, during the Victorian era and the Industrial Revolution.  During this time, innovation and craftsmanship were at their height, bringing farming and technology to a high point in our evolving history.  But with the industrialization of grain farming and the onslaught of Prohibition, cidermaking became a lost art.

Steampunk-inspired craft cidermaking

Howling Moon Craft Cider is excited to be a part of bringing back the ways of old, and turning them into the something new.  Inspired by the steampunk approach of marrying art and science, Kate and Nik use traditional artisan cidermaking techniques and heirloom variety apples along side modern technology. Our orchard-based rebellion is focussed reviving the cider industry, and inevitably, creating a revolution of free-thinking cider drinkers!

We produce a variety of ciders with a range of sweetness using many different techniques, yeast strains, heritage apple varietals and other fruits and botanicals that we grow ourselves, or source from other local farms.
