Our Story Care For Craftsmanship
Malus was born from the idea that drinking your functional beverage of choice should be as enjoyable as indulging in any other elixir. Our care for craftsmanship inspires us to dig deeper into the possibilities of functional-infused beverages. With this imagination, we embrace modern technologies alongside traditional wisdom for the highest-quality beverage experience.
Mindful at Every Step
Extraordinary functional-infused beverages are forged through attention to detail. No corners cut. No component sacrificed. Ingredients, flavors, and effects act as equal partners in the overall experience. That’s why we carefully source and formulate our beverages – to deliver fast-acting, consistent, and delicious results that just make you feel good.
There is a simple joy in connecting humans to the awe and wonder of nature, and in connecting humans to one another. Whether you’re highly experienced or curious about functional beverages, Malus is for YOU. Malus represents striking a blissful balance between cannabis and other natural ingredients, and we honor the craft of functional ingredients and beverage innovation, with the aim of making the most of this magical, powerful plants, herbs and adaptogens.
We procure premium ingredients from around the world. We focus on finding functional ingredients that are pair perfectly with cider.
Live Resin Extraction
Live resin is extracted from fresh plant matter that is immediately frozen after harvest, preserving as much of the natural chemical components and flavorful terpenes as possible.
This proprietary process transforms our functional ingredients, forming an emulsion prepped for even dispersal throughout the cider. This step is critical to a smooth-tasting, measured beverage that elicits a calming high effect with each sip.

The Apple Journey
Unlike traditional ciders made with “cider apples”, Malus starts with “eating apples” - ones that are considered imperfect and couldn’t sell to grocery stores. This blend of Granny Smith, Fuji, Red Delicious and Golden Delicious apples are crisp, firm, and juicy.
Apples are then pulverized and layered to extract the juice. The freshly pressed juice is placed in fermentation vessels with yeast, where it ferments for two weeks. The yeast works to turn sugars into alcohol, ultimately transforming sweet juice into spirited cider.
Using cutting-edge technology, alcohol is removed down to 0.5% abv while retaining the full flavor of the beverage. This step ensures a balanced and traditional dry cider taste.
THE EMULSION OF FUNCTIONAL INGREDIENTS IS THEN INFUSED INTO THE DEALCOHOLIZED CIDER. WITH A FASTER ONSET COMPARED TO OTHER FORMS OF CONSUMPTION, THE EXPERIENCE IS PLEASNTLY METERED AND CONSISTENT. DRINKING MALUS FEELS LIKE DRINKING YOUR FAVORITE HARD CIDER OR BEER, SWAPPING BLOAT FOR BLISS.
To ensure consistency in both taste and potency, Malus undergoes a final review with precise analytical tools.
Malus is canned in small batches, overseen by thoughtful humans at our co-packing partners.
