Winter is Coming With Portland Cider’s Latest Seasonal Releases

Whether naughty or nice, cider drinkers will be delighted to discover Portland Cider Co.’s latest wintertime releases. The brand-new Cranberry Mule Cider and fan-favorite Santa’s Sauce are launching just in time for the holiday season. 

Cranberry Mule is Portland Cider’s newest creation, offering ripe cranberry flavors over subtle apple notes with bright, juicy lime and a hint of fresh ginger. It pours a gorgeous ruby hue, adding a vibrant sparkle of color to any festive occasion. Delicious as a cocktail stand-in, or alongside your favorite wintertime foods. Available in 12-ounce 6-packs.

Santa’s Sauce, a taproom favorite for almost a decade, is returning this winter in limited 16-ounce cans. This festively spiced cider is made with Northwest apples, and infused with cinnamon, cardamom, and a touch of cayenne pepper. It’s spicy and warm, pairs well with roasted turkey and sweet potatoes, and is perfectly suited to holiday desserts like gingerbread, eggnog cheesecake, or apple pie ala mode.

“A sparkling pint of cider is becoming the holiday beverage of choice for more and more people,” said Jared Moe, Vice President of Sales at Portland Cider Co. “Each of these releases are festive and fun, perfectly crafted to encourage folks to ‘Pick Cider’ this season as they plan their winter holiday festivities.”

Pick Cider® for the Holidays is a craft cider industry initiative sponsored by the American Cider Association, hosting their annual conference — CiderCon — in Portland, Oregon in January 2024. A member since 2016, Portland Cider Co. is excited to see the return of the conference in their city. 

Cranberry Mule cider is available in 12-ounce six-pack cans through the end of the year throughout the cidery’s distribution footprint in Oregon, Washington, Colorado, and most of California. Santa’s Sauce cider is available for a limited time in 16-ounce four-pack cans throughout Oregon & SW Washington and on draft at the cidery’s three pub locations. Cider fans can locate any Portland Cider using the company’s Cider Finder online.
