Carlton Cyderworks
Premium Cider Release & Orchard Release Party


McMinnville, Or – As the 2016 apple harvest draws to a close, Carlton Cyderworks is proud to announce the release of three premium ciders, available to the public for the first time Thanksgiving weekend. A special release party will be held on November 25th & 26th, at Carlton Cyderwork’s newest orchard, located at 17530 NE McDougal Road, Dayton, Oregon.

“We are incredibly excited to share our new premium ciders, and to celebrate this release with our first ever orchard party. As cider consumption has grown, we have seen the demand from cider drinkers for more complex and refined ciders. We hope to impress such cider aficionados with our new premium ciders and perries” said Keenan Bailey, CEO of Carlton Cyderworks.

A 50/50 blend of Dolgo Crab apples and heirloom Gravensteins, Summer Set is a wonderfully tart cider full of character and zest. A wild fermentation adds further depth and charm.

An homage to the storied cider regions of Asturias and the Basque Country of Northern Spain, Sidra Natural offers tangy, sharp, acetic notes, along with a full tannic body and mouthfeel.

The first completely dry perry produced by Carlton Cyderworks, Asian Pear allows cider drinkers to experience a unique fruit unadulterated by other fruits or flavors. Hosui, 20th Century, and Shinsheiki, Asian pear varieties were sourced from a nearly wild orchard in Oregon’s Umpqua Valley.

These premium ciders will be available through Carlton Cyderworks in 750 mL bottles.

The orchard release party will be held November 25th & 26th, and will be open 12pm – 6pm each day. Families are welcome, and in total seven unique craft ciders will be available to taste. Food pairings and non-alcoholic fresh pressed spiced cider will be at hand. More information, along with the option to purchase tickets in advance at a discounted rate, can be found at
