A cider experience for all

Levi Danielson set out to make a career in cidermaking after realizing that the place he would be happiest, in what he does day to day, is by making a career out of being surrounded by nature - out in the wild. And so, RAW Cider was born! He realized he could accomplish his goal while also helping people live better lives by creating a product that was more natural; straight from the earth. Levi takes pride in what he does from orchard practices to production and bottling product. RAW Cider strives to introduce people to new flavors that naturally exist beyond the grocery store varieties most consumers are familiar with. This is achieved by making a refined product that is accessible to everyone, all while elevating the full cider experience.

Some of our ciders benefit from a touch of sweetness. We never add sugar, syrups or any other form of sugar. We may stop fermentation early to retain the natural sugars of a fruit or add juice from the apples back into the cider. The natural sugars of the fruit ensure the character, and integrity of the cider is retained to offer a balanced beverage.

We use apples specifically cultivated for cider making. Most varietals we focus on are bittersweet, sharp and bittersharp with an emphasis on French varietals. All of our fruit is grown here in the Pacific Northwest. We also use pears to make perry. Types of pears we use include perry specific fruit, Anjou pears and wild pears.
