Madrone Cider was born in the Summer of 2017 after owners Shaun and Amy Salamida were asked to make cider for a friend’s wedding. With a winemaking background and inspired by the same methods as fine wine, Shaun crafted the first small batch of cider in the winter of 2017.
Madrone Cider works with local farms that practice organic farming and who uphold the values of sustainable agriculture. On San Juan Island, there are six farms they work closely with to source their fruit and other ingredients. For what cannot be sourced on the island, they partner with sustainable growers in Eastern Washington. Their mission is to produce quality ciders that reflect their long term goal of preserving the integrity of the ecosystem.
