Fresh Coast Distributors, a niche distributor of wine and spirits and fans of the craft cider movement, is excited to bring Lehman's Orchard hard ciders to the Chicago area market.

Lecklider has been making artisan hard ciders since 2008 and produces four distinct flavors of hard ciders available in 12 oz bottles with kegs coming soon for taps. For apple lovers, Honeycrisp is made with 75% Honeycrisp apples and 25% blend of heirloom varietals. Cider traditionalists love Jonnyapple, a blend of later-ripening apples. For those seeking flavors off the beaten path, drinkers can sip Hoppy Cider, fermented with Cascade hops or Bourbon Barrel, aged in bourbon barrels for 4 months. “Chicago is in the middle of a cider craze” says Lecklider, and chose to distribute his artisan beverages “to provide cider lovers with a great local option.”
