Our Cider

Swiss-inspired. Colorado roots

The Waldschänke


Introducing unfiltered Swiss-style cider, a delightful beverage crafted with passion and tradition by The Dufresne Family. These exquisite ciders embody the authentic flavors of Switzerland while capturing the essence of the artisanal craftsmanship of Colorado.

Each batch of this locally-sourced cider tells a story, starting from local apple orchards nestled on the Western slopes. Carefully selected, sun-kissed apples are handpicked at the peak of ripeness, ensuring only the finest quality fruits are used in the cider-making process.

What sets our cider apart is its unfiltered nature, allowing the organic flavors and aromas to shine through. With every sip, you’ll experience a rich tapestry of flavors, from crisp and tangy notes to a subtle sweetness that lingers on the palate. The unfiltered aspect adds depth and character, giving the cider a rustic charm that embodies our Swiss heritage.

Crafted with love and dedication, this cider is a true labor of love for our family, who have been perfecting these recipes for generations. Using traditional cider-making techniques passed down through the years, we create a beverage that showcases our commitment to quality and deep-rooted connection to the land which provides such luscious ingredients.

Enjoy this Swiss-style cider as a refreshing companion during warm summer days or savor its unique flavors alongside a cozy winter evening. Whether you’re indulging in a quiet moment alone, celebrating with loved ones, or joining us in our inviting taproom, this locally-sourced, family-made cider is the perfect choice for those seeking an authentic and memorable cider experience. Raise a glass and immerse yourself in the rich heritage of Switzerland, brightened by the experimental nature of Colorado craftsmanship one sip at a time!
