Company Summary

Finnriver is an artisan cidery producing handcrafted hard ciders and fruit wines. We farm and ferment in the Chimacum Valley, on the north Olympic Peninsula of Washington. We are on the frontier of the PNW craft hard cider revival and our ciders are a tribute to the old hard cider traditions while offering an approachable, fresh perspective on the possibilities of the fermented apple. Finnriver offers an authentic taste of life on the land.
