Richard started making cider as a hobby while living in Turku. He bought his apples from Jani, who was busy running his own apple orchard in the Turku Archipelago at the time. Jani – also a sommelier and having developed ciders and berry wines earlier – had also been playing with the idea to go into cider production. So, in 2017 they launched their start-up to make really pure and local craft cider. After some bumps in the road in the beginning, the Corona crisis started – but that made them even more determined. During the lockdown in the spring they created their award-winning Medium Dry apple cider, and plans for expanding production are under way as well. Today, Richard is the CEO and handling Sales, and Jani is in charge of Production and growing the apples.
