CLACKAMAS, Oregon – Portland Cider Co. has introduced a new cider to its year-round lineup. The Perfect 10 is an artisanal hard apple cider crafted in the style of a traditional English Scrumpy or Imperial Cider, with a clean Northwest finish.
The Perfect 10 is a blend of 100 percent Northwest apples, fermented cold and slow to preserve fresh apple flavors and aromas. The cider makers allowed the cider to rest for more than two months to further develop the rich flavors. The cider was then sweetened with a touch of juice and balanced with a little acidity to round out the higher tannin profile.
“The Perfect 10 was inspired by the cider I first made at home in our guestroom closet,” explained Jeff Parrish, co-owner of Portland Cider Co. “It’s dangerously delicious and easy to drink!”
The Perfect 10 is available in 500ml bottles and on draft at Portland Cider Co.’s two taprooms, and at select retailers in Oregon and Washington.
