Our Story

Our StoryThrough the marriage of English traditions and Northwest micro-cidery techniques, Portland Cider Company was established in 2012 by Jeff & Lynda Parrish. Lynda, an ex-patriot from the Somerset region of England (the Mecca of cider), married Oregon native Jeff, inspiring the English-style ciders crafted from Northwest apples Portland Cider is known for.

Our cider starts with fresh pressed juice from 100% Northwest grown apples.  We then carefully ferment it, using yeast that protects the delicate characteristics of the fruit.  The results are ciders that are high quality – easy to drink, refreshing, and downright delicious.  Drink it, it’s Good!

We don’t use concentrates, artificial flavorings and colorings, or add any sulfites to our natural cider. Because it’s made from 100% apples or other fruits, Portland Cider products are always gluten free.

Portland Cider Co. now has two taprooms in Portland, the Portland Cider House on Hawthorne with 28 cider taps and the Clackamas taproom and cidery where they produce their seasonal and flagship ciders.

Distributing in four states (Oregon, Washington, California and Colorado), Portland Cider Co. is looking forward into expansion in other states and overseas in 2016.
