Mussetter Distributing to Sell Hemly Cider Products

AUBURN, Calif. — Hemly Cider has announced a new distribution partnership with Mussetter Distributing of Auburn, Ca. Effective immediately, craft cider fans will discover a greater selection of Hemly Cider products at their favorite retailers in greater Sacramento, Chico and in the Lake Tahoe area!

“Hemly has been growing pears and apples for over 165 years in the Sacramento area, so of course Hemly’s craft ciders will be a popular choice and a great local addition to our portfolio,” said Jason Mussetter, General Manager of Mussetter Distributing. “We’re definitely looking forward to working with another family-run business, supporting local and growing the cider category in 2019.”

A range of Hemly Cider’s estate grown craft ciders will be available year-round, along with seasonal and limited release favorites like Cherry Perry, wild foraged Elderberry, Strawberry Lavender and more. Hemly Cider fans will be excited to see the new addition of an estate grown Pink Lady Apple in 2019.

“We are very excited about our new partnership with the Mussetter Distributing”, said Sarah Hemly, owner of Hemly Cider. “The craft cider industry continues to grow in the Sacramento area. Our unique unfiltered, estate grown, and crafted cider is a great local fit for the growth and brand awareness that Mussetter Distributing can bring.”

Hemly Cider will be opening a “Cider Garden” and hosting some year-round and seasonal ciders events in 2019, to be announced within the next few weeks. Follow @HemlyCider on Facebook and Instagram to stay up to date.

About Hemly Cider

Since 1850 our family has been growing pears along the Sacramento River. After six generations of farming, if there is one thing we know, it’s how to grow pears. In our cider, we believe the fruit is the star and just like great wine, great cider starts with great fruit. That is why we control the entire cider making process from the tree all the way to your bottle! All our ciders are crafted with our 100% estate grown pears and apples. Crushed at the peak of flavor, fermented, aged on oak, gently sweetened with fresh juice then lightly carbonated, our unfiltered hand-crafted cider is a perfect pear for any occasion!
