Producer Profile

Jaanihanso

Jaanihanso stands as a cherished family-owned cider house and orchard nestled within the storied grounds of a historic farm dating back to the 18th century. Acquired by the Roosimaa family in 2000, their insight into the farm's legacy is gleaned from ancestral documents discovered within the house and shared recollections from elder villagers reminiscing about bygone eras.

A weathered workshop, a relic from the collective farm era, marred the landscape until fate intervened, offering the ideal canvas for Jaanihanso Cidery. Embracing the opportunity, they acquired, renovated, and outfitted the space with tanks and a cider press, breathing new life into its timeworn frame.
