“Florida is a natural fit for BHC. Blake’s fans really drove this decision,” said Andrew Blake, founder of Blake’s Hard Cider. “We are a Michigan-based company and many Michiganders spend a lot of time in Florida during the colder months. BHC fans have been asking us to bring our ciders to Florida for a while and we are excited to finally offer our authentic craft ciders in Florida now and grow our BHC consumer base there.”
“Cavalier Distributing is excited to be able to partner with Blake’s to bring an authentic hard cider to Florida,” said Megan Colon, brand manager at Cavalier. “We were attracted to Blake’s because of the company’s authenticity and farm values, high-quality product, and the BHC demand we already know is there in Florida.”
