Become a Distributor

First of all if you are currently carrying or considering distributing our ACE ciders, know that nobody in the World makes a better range of ciders. Wasn’t it Cassius Clay, who said why be modest when you’re the best?! We use local Sonoma eating apples and natural flavors for our ciders that is why they are fresh and pure tasting. Most of our competition use crab apples or pithy cider apples.

  • The cider market is growing at 20% per annum, craft beers at 9%. ACE at 35% in 2010.
  • It’s easier to sell a hard cider on tap or in the store that another beer, how many ales, lagers, hefe weisses, strong ales, IPA’s do you need? You’re competing against yourselves with similar sku’s of beer.
  • ACE pricing is premium but competitive to other cider and less expensive than most beers!
  • Wine is too expensive and too high in alcohol compared to cider.
  • The UK cider business is $1.5 billion, the US is only $100 million with 6 times the UK population. Canada spends $5 per capita on cider the US .15cents.Tremendous upside potential.
  • The number one sku in the UK is a cider not Budweiser!
  • Cider is its own drinks category and does not have to be price-posted in most states. Therefore you can be aggressive with promotions.
  • Cider consumption is 40% male and 60% female. Females do most of the grocery shopping. Females increase on-premise sales.
  • ACE PERRY is one of the most refreshing drinks, ACE JOKER is like champagne and mixes with other beverages such as lagers, stouts.OJ etc.
  • Cider doesn’t foam, therefore no waste, lost profits, frustration.
  • ACE ciders have no date codes and do not have to be refrigerated as much as micro and macro beer.
  • Most major metro’s currently sell 3 to 4keg’s of hard ciders per month, this could quadruple in the next 5 years.
  • ACE has a 4-5% market share, we are looking for 25% over the next few years.
