Hornsby’s was first produced in 1993 by Ernest and Julio Gallo Winery in CA. E&J Gallo grew Hornsby’s into one of the top selling cider brands in the U.S. As Gallo is primarily a wine business, they sold Hornsby’s to C&C in 2011. In late 2012 C&C re-launched Hornsby’s giving it a new updated look and reformulated both the Crisp and Amber recipes to be more competitive in the growing segment. Hornsby’s Cider doesn’t follow a straight path. It’s a good thing, because life doesn’t either. A great moment can change everything. It can turn fortunes, inspire ideas and send the status quo packing. When free thinkers and creative spirits collide, the world becomes a brighter place. Charge after life’s great moments.
