CLACKAMAS, Ore. – Portland Cider Co. is introducing a new seasonal lineup that will kick off with the release of RazzBerry, a refreshing new cider in the company’s portfolio.
RazzBerry features loads of bright raspberries combined with Northwest-grown apples, a touch of lemon zest, and juicy Hood River Valley pears. Easy-drinking, thirst-quenching and refreshingly tart, the cider is 5.8% ABV and ideal for barbecues and outdoor adventures.
“RazzBerry is the perfect cider for the sunshine that’s right around the corner here in the Pacific Northwest; or at least it will give you all the summertime feels if the spring rain never lets up!,” said Helen Lewis, marketing director for Portland Cider Co. “Last summer’s seasonal Pineapple Rosé was such a hit we made it year-round. RazzBerry is the perfect replacement this year.”
This bright and beautifully pink cider pairs well with grilled cilantro lime chicken, strawberry citrus spinach salad, orzo pasta salad, and a light, fresh cheese like feta. Its tart and zesty finishing notes make it the perfect cider for summer fun in the backyard.
RazzBerry will make its debut at Portland Cider Co.’s seventh anniversary party this Saturday, March 7, from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the company’s Clackamas Taproom and Cidery, located at 8925 SE Jannsen Rd., Bldg. F. It will hit store shelves and bar taps throughout the month of March.
Available through the end of the summer, RazzBerry is the perfect definition of a cider full of sunshine. The seasonal cider will be available in 19.2-ounce “proper pint” cans, six packs of 12-ounce cans, and on draft to distributors throughout Oregon, Washington, Northern Idaho, and Northern California.
