Horacio was in search of the perfect cider. He knew it should be bright and bold, not too heavy and certainly not sweet. He was looking for something different than beer or wine. So he decided to make it himself.

Horacio and Sara thought that San Diego would be an perfect place to start the cidery: bright and bold, with plenty of sun and certainly no snow. So they packed up and went.

After hundreds of test batches and hundreds of long miles, Guthrie CiderWorks was born in the Miramar/Sorrento Valley neighborhood of San Diego. Today Guthrie cider is sold in more than 100 stores and restaurants throughout Southern California.

​And now you can enjoy a taste of Horacio’s perfect, never-sweet cider wherever your perfect place is.
