Ciders From Mars

Ciders From Mars After years of trials with benchtop cider experiments and volunteering at a friend’s cidery, Virginia natives Nikki West and Jeremy Wimpey decided to fully embark on their own cider adventure under the strange and diffuse light of the total solar eclipse in 2017. Combining their passions for science, nature, music, and art, they established Ciders From Mars, exclusively using Earth-bound apple varieties grown in their home state. Since the eclipse, Nikki has refined her skills in the cider lab while leveraging her background as a geochemist and implementing new techniques learned from coursework at the Cider Institute of North America. Jeremy helped her scale up operations and establish a small cider orchard in western Augusta county, VA. While Nikki is now consumed full time by Ciders From Mars, Jeremy continues to operate Applied Trails Research out of the Shenandoah Valley.
