Jack’s Hard Cider is Pennsylvania-born and -raised—in fact, Biglerville, our beautiful corner of the Keystone State, is actually known as one of the Apple Capitals of the world! It’s the combination of ideal climate and soil conditions and decades of apple-growing experience that makes the apples in our flagship and seasonal hard ciders so crisp, juicy and delicious. Though we started as a local company, we’ve grown our distribution to nearby cities like Philadelphia and New York City, and over the past year, have been making our way down south.
Newest to the Jack’s family: North and South Carolina, two states known for amazing nature, gorgeous beaches and relaxed, vibrant cities. The Carolinas’ vibe is the perfect place for Jack’s Hard Cider to grow new roots (after all, our refreshing ciders go great with BBQ!). In North Carolina, you can find Jack’s in bars and restaurants across Raleigh-Durham, Greensboro, Winston-Salem and Wilmington, and our intrepid sales rep, Mary McRae, has recently introduced Jack’s Hard Cider’s lineup to Charleston in South Carolina.
Craft beer bars like Craftsman Taphouse; hip, chef-forward restaurants like R. Kitchen; and cozy, intimate wine and cocktail bars spots like Elliotborough Mini Bar are among the growing list of Charleston-based establishments now offering Jack’s Hard Cider either on draft or in our signature cans.
Live farther south? No problem—we’re available as far south as Georgia! Among many other places, you can find us in a great joint in Savannah called Bowtie Barbecue Co. and at Trappeze Pub in Athens. Both of these fine establishments have used Jack’s Hard Cider as an ingredient in dishes and drinks, and inspired by our expansion into the American South, we’ve dug up some fantastic Southern food recipes that would taste even better with Jack’s Hard Cider! Now, no matter where you live, you can enjoy the magic that happens when Jack’s Hard Cider meets Southern cuisine.
