Portland Cider Company (Clackamas, Oregon) has officially announced that it will begin the Limited Release of Bubbly Brut, the latest release in its Small Batch Series, in late December 2020.
Here to fill your New Year with a “modern champagne-style sparkling cider that’s perfect for celebrating a special occasion or a ‘cider-bration’ any night of the week,” Bubbly Brut is a Hard Cider “made from 100% Northwest apples, fermented separately with two different champagne yeast strains on neutral French Oak, then blended.” Coming in at 6.9% ABV, Bubbly Brut is a “a dry, tannic cider that’s rich in apple notes with depth, character, and plenty of fizz, offering 50 percent more carbonation than the cidery’s other products.”
“We wanted to capture what people would expect from a champagne, but in a more approachable cider package,” said Deron Davenport, Portland Cider Co.’s head cidermaker. “Bubby Brut feels like a celebration with its sparkling effervescence, but it’s a cider at its core. That’s what’s really cool about this product—it’s an ode to a dry cider with a flavor profile that’s just as complex as any champagne you’ll find.”
Bubbly Brut is rolling out now and will hang around through February 2021. You can expect to find this new Limited Release available in 19.2 oz. cans and on draft at select cider-friendly establishments located within Portland Cider Company’s distribution footprint in Oregon, Washington, Northern Idaho, and Northern California.
