About Us

Our name comes from the nautical navigation aids, or channel markers, that mariners use as a guide when returning from the sea or venturing back out again. The name is meaningful to us, since we met sailing the Pacific Ocean and find inspiration on and near the water.

Nestled between the lush Cascade Mountains and the salty Puget Sound, the maritime climate and adventurous spirit of Seattle provides the perfect inspiration for our cider recipes. And we source, forage and grow many of our ingredients from around the Sound (and our own backyard).

We hope that our small-batch, handcrafted ciders help you navigate the sea of beverage choices and exceed your expectations with every sip.
