Malus Tops at High Spirits Awards

Malus, a cannabis-infused cider from Harmony Craft Beverages, takes home category honors at the High Spirits Awards.

Malus Granny Smith OG, a cannabis-infused cider from Harmony Craft Beverages, has been named “Best Cannabis Beverage” at the inaugural High Spirits Awards hosted by the LA Spirits Awards. As the first cannabis-specific beverage competition of its kind, this win from the High Spirits awards illuminates Malus as one to watch in the growing functional infused-beverage category.

Nicolette Teo, Co-Founder of LA Spirits Awards, said, “As the cannabis beverage industry expands rapidly, High Spirit Awards medals can help consumers, retailers, potential investors, and media make sense of the dizzying array of choices they face when encountering cannabis beverages. High Spirits Awards medals act as seals of approval that cannabis beverage brands can use to prove their quality and convey to all that their product is something special.”

“It is both humbling and validating to know that the wide variety of judges recognized the quality of our product.” says Malus co-founder and CEO Evan Eneman. “We’ve worked really hard to create a dry, drinkable product that’s true to the character of traditional cider with the added benefit of our low dose live resin infusion. We’ve known that consumers love Malus – it’s exciting to get that recognition from some of the best palates in beverage.”

Malus Granny Smith OG is made by slowly and gently dealcoholizing hard cider in a process that preserves its overall flavor while removing the alcohol. The premium cider base is then infused with non-emulsified Sour Diesel Live Resin, which gives it a microdosed, fast-acting and well-rounded effect. Malus is available in select cities across California at and for a limited time exclusively at Los Angeles retail partner, The Higher Path.

Plans for the fall heat up for Malus with a series of events and plans to launch additional SKUs including new flavors and other functional-infusions with lines available nationwide.
