2 Towns Ciderhouse is introducing Prickly Pearadise cider to their main year-round lineup. This bright magenta colored hard cider gets it’s complexion from nopal cactus on top of the fresh-pressed northwest apple base. Prickly Pearadise is part of 2 Towns slow overhaul of the lineup to focus on ciders fermented with colorful fruits other than apples. Examples include marion blackberries (Made Marion), and black currant and cranberries (Cosmic Currant). Costa Rican gold pineapples (Pacific Pineapple), Meyer lemon and raspberries (Easy Squeezy), and rose petals and raspberries (Two Thorns).
2020 is the 10th Anniversary of Corvallis-based 2 Towns Ciderhouse who has become the largest craft cider producer in Oregon at 60,000 barrels produced in 2019. 2 Towns is now ranking among the Top Five U.S. cideries in national sales.
“We pride ourselves on getting the best fruit possible from farmers who we’ve developed longstanding relationships with over the years. Prickly Pearadise honors fruit that showcases a complexity of flavors. We’re always using different yeast strains and apple varieties to get the optimal pairing of ingredients. The result of Prickly Pearadise is simply stunning,” says Dave Takush (Head Cider Maker, 2 Towns Ciderhouse).
