Our Story
It all started with the purchase of this antique Cider press in 2017.

It was love at first sight,
and we couldn't wait to share our apple juicing skills with our customers.
Nick got busy putting the antique press to work and we shared fresh apple juice with everyone on special event days.

Everyone loved it!

Soon afterward,
Nick got an idea.

Holly didn't know what that silver cylinder was.
It certainly was no antique!
Then Holly kept finding Nick with his nose in books like this one.

Uh oh!

Nick asked his brother Dan, to help him juice apples. They ground and pressed many, many pounds of apples together until they had 75 gallons of juice!
Before long Nick had experimental batches of cider fermenting in what he called "the Secret Cider Room"!

After several months of aging the ciders, Nick got them bottled, Holly's sister Tammy created beautiful labels for us and we were ready to share it and get feedback from Renton cider lovers.
Guess what?
People loved it!

And Nick loved telling the story of cider apples and how he got started making Puget Sound Cider Company ciders.

Time to get serious!

In early 2019, Puget Sound Cider Company became a licensed Washington State Winery. Today we offer many small batch varieties of award winning traditional ciders made with Washington State grown cider apples.
In February 2020 we opened our licensed tasting room inside our shop, Antiques 4U.

We invite you to stop in for a cider tasting and peruse the many antiques we have in our showroom. Purchase a glass to enjoy while shopping and choose from a variety of ciders to take home.

By late 2022 we had the opportunity to lease the traditional cider apple orchard we had been buying our apples from. In January 2023 the papers were signed and we officially became farmers!

We now operate the 10 acre orchard in Ellensburg, Washington
Nick, being a huge Tolkien fan, decided to name the orchard "Lonely Mountain Orchard". Holly's sister Tammy created this amazing logo!
