Meriwether Cider is owned and operated by the Leadbetter family; Kate and Molly and parents Ann and Gig. They got the idea when Ann and Gig were on sabbatical in Australia and saw the amount of cider consumed there. They thought “This is what Boise needs!!” and that’s the very beginning of Meriwether Cider. Gig has been a homebrewer of beer, wine, and cider since college so he easily fell into the role of Head Cider Maker. The rest of the family soon found their place in the company, Kate is by far the most creative and fell right into the role of managing events, donations, and anything to do with making Meriwether community oriented and a fun place to hang out! Molly having slightly more computer knowledge than the rest of the family slipped into the role of social media and marketing, and poor poor Ann being the wonderful woman that she is volunteered to do the accounting.
