Why Cold Press?

Why Cold Press?

August 12, 2016

We pride ourselves on selling only the best products which includes our cold pressed juices. At Red Jacket Orchards, we've perfected our cold press process for over 50 years to give you a juice that tastes as close to eating the actual fruit as possible. The cold press process allows us to keep our juices simple by using only the best quality ingredients. The cold press process takes three steps:
  1. First, we start off with ripe fruit straight from our orchards and local growers. This is a critical part of the process as we want you to taste the freshness of the fruit in every sip of your cold pressed juice.  Screen Shot 2016-08-03 at 1.55.04 PM
  2. Second, the fruit is chopped and put through our rack and cloth pressing process. Apples are wrapped around the cloth and pressed to squeeze the juices out. Screen Shot 2016-08-03 at 1.55.45 PM
  3. Finally, the juice is flash pasteurized to ensure safety and then flash cooled to 35 degrees. From there, the juice is kept at 35 degrees from our juice building to the store. Screen Shot 2016-08-03 at 1.56.12 PM
While our juices may differ in terms of taste, our Blends, Ciders, STOMPs, and Joe's juices are all made through this process and use only the freshest ingredients to make all-natural, unfiltered, and refreshing juices.
