Ace’s award-winning ciders are pure, clean and refreshing because they use only the best eating apples for their juice and the best ingredients money can buy. There are 12 amazing ACE cider styles to choose from. All are Gluten Free with lower calories and lower sugars than most of the competition!

Here’s the back story: California Cider Company is the first family-owned cider in the US. Located near some of the most renowned wine makers and apple orchards in the world, they have been making ACE ciders since 1993 in beautiful Sebastopol, California just north of San Francisco. ACE was founded by Jeffrey House, who moved to the USA from the UK in the 1970s – looking for opportunity with not much wealth to get started. Preparing for a cider business of his own, Jeffrey worked in the beer and cider industry saving money until he was able to open ACE Cider, California’s Original Cider Mill. Jeffrey found luck in the apple orchards of Sonoma County California, where familiarity drew him to cider making, having had experience with the popular alcoholic beverage in the UK.

After years of long distance love, Angela followed him to the USA from the UK and they were married. Over these years, they had three sons who went off to be educated so that they would be prepared for the world ahead. Now decades later, having helped build the American hard cider industry, Jeffrey finds luck and refuge in his sons’ passion to continue building his family cider business.
