The Northwest Cider Club brings you into the heart of the craft cider movement—sharing the creativity and passion of more than 100 independent cidermakers across the Pacific Northwest.

This limited-release club box is themed An Exploration of Pome Fruit and ships to club members beginning in June, 2024. While apples are the quintessential pome fruit that we all know and love (especially in its fermented form of cider), we wanted to show some love and appreciation to a couple other pome fruits: pears and quince. This spring release explores a range of tasty beverages made from apples, pears, quince, or some combination of these pome fruit. The Discover Club box includes a mix of 6 selections of unique, expertly curated cider offerings from around the Pacific Northwest. Taste the range of cider profiles featuring traditional cider apples, modern dessert apples, perry pears, asian pears, and quince.

Alma Cider (Washington)

Perry | Made from 100% Perry Pear Varieties

“Alma” is the original word for the apple. In Spanish, “Alma” means soul, and in Latin, it means nurturing spirit. To Dave and Heather Klawer, owners of Alma Cider, Alma means putting their soul and spirit into knowing and respecting the land, growing the best possible fruit, and making the highest quality cider.

Alma Cider is a small family business established in 2019, born from a dream to spend the days working outside in nature and to grow an unparalleled cider apple crop. In addition to making cider, Dave and Heather work tirelessly operating Bitters & Sharps Orchard in the Skagit Valley of Washington State, where they are planting a 36-acre cider apple orchard as well as providing orchard planning, grafting, and consultation services.

Alma’s Perry is made from locally grown perry pears from the Skagit Valley in Washington State. Very dry with fruit forward flavors of the orchard. Crisp and bright with medium body and a lingering finish.
