Portland, OR – Portland Cider Company announces the release of 22oz seasonal bottles for the first time in 2017, starting with their new Pineapple cider. Like a sun filled day cruising down the Valley Isle, this pineapple cider brings a tropical oasis to your mouth. Sweetened with 100% fresh pressed pineapple juice, this seasonal cider calls for a little paper umbrella. With a semi-sweet finish, this 6% ABV fruit cider pairs beautifully with barbacoa pork quesadillas, Asian chicken salad and, of course, traditional Hawaiian foods like mac salad and Kahlua pork.
“We use whole pineapples that we squeeze fresh, right here in the back of our cidery in Clackamas. It makes the entire building smell like this incredible tropical oasis for a couple of days – we love it,” says Deron Davenport, head cider maker at Portland Cider Company. “There are no artificial flavorings or concentrates used here, keeping the flavor of the pineapple delicate and delicious.”
Other Seasonal 22oz Bottle Releases for 2017 include:
- Strawberry: Our award-winning 100% pear juice Perry, blended with Oregon strawberries to create a delicate and delightful cider; available June – August 2017.
- Pumpkin Spice: A combination of the perfect Fall flavors of Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Cloves, Allspice, and Ginger, with our NW apple cider base; available September – November 2017.
- Cranberry: A fan favorite, our cranberry cider is fermented with fresh Oregon cranberries and a hint of orange peel; available November 2017 – January 2018.
To kick-off the Seasonal Bottle Line-up, the Pineapple bottle will launch Friday, February 3, at the official Pineapple Bottle Release Party & Winter Luau held at both Portland Cider Company taprooms (Hawthorne-Portland or Clackamas). Portland Cider fans can then find Pineapple bottles at select retailers within Portland Cider Co.’s distribution area or either taproom (Hawthorne-Portland or Clackamas). Portland Cider Co. is currently distributed in the states of Oregon, Washington, Colorado, and the Los Angeles area of California.
