Rootstock Ciderworks

Makeway embraced the challenges of my start up business and quickly contributed to the brand-building efforts for Rootstock Ciderworks, a farmstead cidery located in Upstate New York. Their talent, energy, and willingness to do what it takes to get it done won me over. I’m grateful for their creative contributions.

It tastes as fresh and crisp as it looks.

To secure shelf space in Wegmans is roughly the equivalent of the Holy Grail for any local company. When Rootstock, a local cidery with a popular new brand in the hard cider space, was notified of their inclusion in Wegmans stores, Linchpin Strategy called us in to help. Rootstock needed a clean, fresh site to introduce their handcrafted product to a wider audience, and ultimately compete with other brands for in-store recognition and consideration game. Our thinking: Focus on the unique fact that their hard cider has only 2 ingredients, and give the site a genuine, local/farmstead craft feel. Their customers’ thinking: Delicious.
