Berry Hits Shelves in Nine States as Seattle Cider Company’s Summer Seasonal
Scheduled for released June 1, Pacific Northwest berries give the growing cidery’s summer seasonal an unexpected and refreshing twist
SEATTLE (June 1, 2015) – Seattle Cider Company celebrates the return of summer with the arrival of its popular seasonal, Berry, in 22-ounce bottles and on draft. This unique and refreshing cider was created using a delicious blend of Pacific Northwest blueberries, blackberries and raspberries, pulling in all the flavors of the season without the sweetness. Berry takes over for spring seasonal Basil Mint, joining the cidery’s three year round and two limited edition ciders on shelves across the country.
“Last year, this cider didn’t make it outside of the Pacific Northwest,” said Brent Miles, Seattle Cider Company’s head cidermaker. “As one of our favorites, we’re excited to bring this uniquely tart and flavorful cider to all of our markets this year. We know it will be a hit this summer, no matter where you’re enjoying it.”
A semi-dry cider, Seattle Cider’s Berry is crafted with pressed raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries, with the juice added straight into the tank during fermentation. Softly tart with a flavor of young raspberries at the start and subtly sweet on the finish, this cider is both refreshing and full-flavored. Offering a 6.9 ABV and just 1.8 Brix, this deep rose-color cider is available in 22-ounce bottles and on draft.
Seattle Cider’s full lineup of offerings breaks the mold of overly sweet cider, bringing the natural flavors of Washington apples to the forefront. Naturally gluten free and made from a custom blend of fresh pressed, Washington apples, Seattle Cider’s products are handcrafted with real ingredients, never from concentrate and free from artificial flavorings. Seasonal ciders – such as Berry, Pumpkin Spice, Oaked Maple and Basil Mint– are to be released each quarter, offering unique and unexpected flavor profiles geared toward the season.
