SEBASTOPOL, CA — Just in time for the latest installment in the Star War’s saga, ACE Premium Craft Cider’s newest flavor, “SPACE,” made with blood orange and tart, refreshing apple cider.
Founded more than two decades ago, ACE is the largest and oldest craft cider-maker on the West Coast. The brand is leading an explosion in popularity of hard apple cider with inspired flavors like SPACE, which pairs real blood orange juice with fresh-pressed apple cider to create an entirely new flavor sensation.
“In the Seventies my wife, Angela, appeared as an extra in the iconic bar scene in the original Star Wars movie, and I created this new flavor in her honor, and because we both love the Star Wars franchise,” said Jeffrey House, ACE’s founder and an early visionary in the hard cider market. “Blood orange and tart apple is an other-worldly flavor combination, so it’s a perfect tie-in to the new film.”
Made with hard apple cider and a puree of fresh blood orange to create a vivid orange color, House recommends Space as an alternative to the traditional mimosa. Space is available in supermarkets, natural foods grocers, and beverage retailers in markets across the United States. The product is unfiltered and gluten free and is available on draft and in 22-ounce bottles. The suggested retail price for the bottles is $5.99 to $6.99.
ACE is widely recognized as an innovator in the hard cider category, a reputation it earned with such flavors as Ace Perry, Apple Honey Cider, Pineapple Cider, and Pumpkin Cider, among others. ACE is also known for its efforts to preserve Sonoma County’s traditional apple-growing economy with its “Blackjack 21” hard apple cider, made from 100% Graventstein apples grown in Sonoma County.
