The Northwest Cider Association, a non-profit trade organization representing nearly 100 cideries in Oregon, Washington, Montana, Idaho and British Columbia is launching a first of its kind, the Northwest Cider Club nwciderclub.com.
Club members will enjoy quarterly shipments of perfectly picked, carefully curated ciders made in the Pacific Northwest. With abundant fields of apples, fruits, hops, and botanical herbs, the Northwest has become the heart of the craft cider movement.
Craft cider can be hard to find, but the Northwest Cider Club makes it easy. Now cider curious and dedicated fans alike can get hard-to-find, handcrafted selections delivered to their door.
The Northwest Cider Club also offers behind the scenes views of getting to know the Northwest’s vibrant community of innovative and award-winning cidermakers; respected around the world for their eclectic ability to combine art, science, and the region’s high-quality fruit and ingredients to create unique and distinct craft ciders.
As people experience fatigue with distancing and sameness, the delicious and dynamic world of cider provides a chance to safely explore new landscapes of flavor profiles. Lovers of wine, craft beer, artisan spirits and fine foods are delighting in the accessibility and nuances of cider. “There is joy and adventure in craft cider. Now more than ever is the time to explore and share new flavors, while supporting Northwest cidermakers and farmers,” said Emily Ritchie, Executive Director of NWCA.
The limited-release, debut club box is themed Discover Oregon, including 6 unique, hand picked cider offerings, available for order at www.nwciderclub.com only until November 22, 2020. The Discover Oregon box will arrive mid-December just in time for the holidays. A club membership is a unique holiday gift for friends, family and in lieu of the office holiday party.
Discover Oregon cider collection includes a diverse range of cider styles and formats hailing from makers large and small, from different backgrounds and from across the map. The Northwest Cider Club’s inaugural box includes 2 Towns Ciderhouse’s 10th Anniversary special release, Peak Light Cider’s estate Field Run Semi Dry, La Familia Cider’s Guava, Salt Creek Cider House’s heirloom blend called Rebel, Double Mountain Brewery and Cidery’s blend called Heirloom, and Reveille’s homage to Harry Potter’s Sirius Black called Serious Black which is fermented with black tea and apricots. For more information on this box’s specific bottles and how to join the club visit nwciderclub.com.
The celebration package makes exploring Northwest cider easy. “All you’ll need to go along with the box is a good cheese, a fresh loaf of bread, and your “quaran-team” to share these beautiful libations with. We’re stoked to collaborate with the Northwest Cider Association to work together to celebrate craft cider!” said Aaron Sarnoff-Wood, co-owner of 2 Towns Ciderhouse.
