Corvallis, OR. — This week 2 Towns Ciderhouse releases Flight of the Kiwi, an electrifying, oak-aged cider made from Northwest-grown hardy kiwi berries, fresh-pressed apples and gooseberries. With vibrant kiwi aromas and heady tropical notes, Flight of the Kiwi has a sessionable 5.8% ABV. Two pounds of hardy kiwi berries, small cousins of the better-known kiwifruit, go into every gallon of this cider, which is fermented cold with sauvignon blanc yeast for a delicious brew as fun as New Zealand’s curious flightless bird.
“Flight of the Kiwi has crazy bright, tropical aromas like you’d inhale while walking through a lush equatorial fruit grove,” said Dave Takush, head cider maker for 2 Towns Ciderhouse. “This cider demonstrates our mission of pushing the bounds of what cider can be. With quality local ingredients, some creative blending, and a lot of passion, Flight of the Kiwi breaks the mold.”
One small batch of Flight of the Kiwi is now ready for cider lovers , and 2 Towns expects it to ‘fly’ off the shelves. It will be primarily available in Oregon, California and Washington. Flight of the Kiwi has the backbone to stand up to flavorful and hearty fare—try pairing it with chipotle pork or bacon grilled cheese sandwiches.
