2 Towns Ciderhouse Releases Winter Ciders Pommeau, Riverwood and Serious Scrump

By  | 

2 Towns Ciderhouse out of Corvallis, Oregon, is releasing three of its most jubilant ciders for the winter: Pommeau, a port-style cider; Riverwood, a prosecco-esque cider; and Serious Scrump, a rich, scrumpy-style cider. The tremendous range of these three ciders as pairings for the holiday table, cocktails, or after hours sippers make for a perfect winter treat. 

Pommeau ’15 – Barrel Aged Apple Wine

ABV 19% – Release Date: December 9

A barrel-aged classic, the ‘15 vintage Pommeau is an essential guest at any holiday table or in any cider connoisseur’s collection. Hand-harvested and ‘sweated’ at cool temperatures, the fresh-pressed juice is then fermented and aged with apple brandy made from our own cider. Matured in French oak barrels for one year, the result is a tremendously complex apple Pommeau with a nose of dried apricots, orange blossoms, and late-season heirloom apples.  This bottle will continue to improve with cellaring for up to 20 years.

 

Imperial Seasonal – Serious Scrump – Unfiltered Imperial Cider

ABV 11% – Release Date: December 15

Rich and substantial, Serious Scrump is a dry scrumpy cider made with an ice juice process. An eclectic blend of apples is pressed, frozen and slowly thawed, resulting in thick, aromatic juice which is then fermented with traditional English cider yeast.

 

 

Traditions – Riverwood ’16 – New World Brut Cider

ABV 6.3% – Release Date: December 28

Inspired by proseccos of the past, Riverwood is a contemporary take on a classic. Slow fermentation at cold temperatures allows the intense passionfruit-like aroma of freshly picked and pressed Jonagold and Porter’s Perfection apples to flourish. Dry, bright and floral, this New World cider brings the brut style out of the past and into the present.
