Ace Cider has been handcrafted since 1993 in the beautiful Sebastopol area of Sonoma County, home of some of the world's most renowned apple orchards. Pure, clean and refreshing, only the best eating apples are used for the juice in Ace Cider. With styles ranging from extra dry and brut cider, to innovative fruit infused cider like mango, pineapple and pear, Ace never settles for the status quo.

It is a single varietal, local Sonoma Gravenstein, fermented at 9% abv and then oak aged it in Sonoma Chardonnay Barrels. Only a limited number of bottles of Blackjack 21 are made each year.
California Cider was founded by Jeffrey House and formally incorporated in July 1993. The company makes cider, an alcoholic beverage fermented from apples, and was one of the first cider companies formed in the US after the end of Prohibition. ACE Cider also opened the first modern cider-centered pub in the US in 1999. While the pub closed in 2010, the company maintains a cider tasting room on its premises. Mr. House located his business in the Sonoma County historic apple growing region because it reminded him of his native England.
