The first release of our Social Justice Cider Project is our 'Black Current' cider, a re-issued and relabeled bottle of our classic Black Currant cider. The focus of this bottle is to bring more resources to and raise awareness of the vital work of two regional BIPOC-led (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) farms and community-wellness projects. We are proud to partner with Earthseed in Seattle and Yasuke Commons in Portland. Label art was created by local artist Maiz, whose work you can learn more about at www.amaizinkart.com. We loved the label art so much we made a t-shirt with the same image, available here and here.

We welcome questions, ideas and concerns and you can learn more about Finnriver’s work towards diversity, equity and inclusion. If you have
