Jefferson Parish Pulse


Kingfish Cider

Season 4, Ep. 6

On this episode of Jefferson Parish Pulse powered by JEDCO, we feature an interview with Colleen Keogh, founder of Kingfish Cider. This is the first-of-its-kind in Jefferson Parish and one of the few solely woman-owned alcohol producers in the US. In today's interview, you'll learn about how Colleen stumbled upon the hard cider industry while traveling and decided she wanted to bring the concept home to Louisiana. She learned how to make cider and then spent years perfecting it and building the business from the ground up. Last month, Colleen celebrated the grand opening of the cidery with much fanfare. She talks about how she learned the art of cider making, what it means to see her business come to fruition after so many years of planning, and why she chose the name "Kingfish" for the company.
