Overview

Swift Cider is an award winning craft hard cider company based in Portland, Oregon. We operate a newly built 6k square foot production facility that is bonded as winery. We have experience producing a variety of alcoholic and non alcoholic beverages and we can offer a full service co-packing. We can package batches as small as 300 gallons, allowing you to launch more flavors in smaller quantities. As you grow, we can connect you with larger co-packers to help further scale your business.

Benefits of Co Packing

  • No overhead = less risk
  • Scale your business more rapidly without the need to buy expensive equipment
  • Benefit from an award winning production team with decades of experience
  • Spend more money on inventory and marketing and less on overhead
  • Be more nimble and diverse when launching new products 
  • Quickly pivot to emerging market opportunities with new flavors and new package formats

Batch Sizes

We have three 2100 gallon conical fermenters, two 2100 gallon brite tanks and three 600 gallon brite tanks, that allow us to package a variety of batch sizes and flavors at the same time. Most co-packers won’t run smaller batches without charging additional fees, so we offer a special opportunity to new brands and smaller volume producers.

Swift can package into kegs, bottles, and cans. We have the equipment to wash and fill American Sankey kegs. We work with all of the mobile bottlers in our area to offer a wide variety of bottle and can options. We can recommend label vendors and your typical options will include pressure sensitive labels and shrink sleeve labels. Typical package formats include:
