Corvallis, Ore., –May 14, 2015–This week 2 Towns Ciderhouse releases the first installment of its Cider Master Reserve Series. Inspired by the rich history of cidermaking, the Cider Master Reserve Series holds nothing back, utilizing rare heirloom cider fruit from the Pacific Northwest to create ciders that pioneer beyond the modern palate.
Batch No. 01 is a 6.9% ABV traditional English-style cider made with a blend of the finest locally-sourced heirloom cider apples, including Ashmead’s Kernal, Bramley’s Seedling, Chisel Jersey and Newtown Pippen. Aging in a variety of select vintage casks lends depth and uncommon character to this bold, dry cider.
“We always say we want to push the bounds of what cider can be, and our Cider Master Reserve Series, allows us to do exactly that in a way that melds tradition and innovation,” said Dave Takush, head cidermaker for 2 Towns Ciderhouse. “Batch No. 01 brings back that rustic pioneer flavor, while also relying on the 2 Towns commitment to using some of the best cider making standards in the business.”
Batch 01 of the Cider Master Reserve Series will be available as supplies last in 750 ml bottles. The Cider Master Reserve cider will be available in very limited quantities in Oregon, Washington, California, Alaska, Idaho, Hawaii, the Chicago area, parts of Nevada and Minnesota. Less than 300 cases of Cider Master Reserve, Batch No. 01 were bottled.
About 2 Towns Ciderhouse
2 Towns Ciderhouse produces craft hard apple cider in Corvallis, Oregon. Founded in 2010 by three friends living in the two towns of Eugene and Corvallis, OR, 2 Towns Ciderhouse strives to bring craft hard apple cider back to the people. 2 Towns Ciderhouse is proud to be a part of the resurgence of America’s first craft beverage of choice. In 2012 we began planting our own cider apple orchard, and since the beginning we've been committed to supporting local apple growers by insisting on using the finest fresh-pressed 100% NW apples. We never take shortcuts in the cider-making process—and never add sugar or essence flavorings—but instead let the fresh, naturally fermented ingredients speak for themselves.
