West County Cider was started by the Maloney family in 1984 with a commitment to making small-batch ciders with impeccable apples from local orchards. Thirty-five years later our family has grown but the tradition continues. We use fine-winemaking techniques and focus on freshness of flavor and total respect for each individual apple variety. Every harvest year represents a new a foray into the possibility of the apple.
For 35 years now we have made cider. Pine Hill Orchards in our town presses our fruit. We grow five acres of cider apples. Starting with 100 cases in 1984, we made more than 2000 last year. We still ferment and bottle our ciders in the cellar of our farmhouse—we are still small. But we are proud of how widely our ciders are celebrated.
