Portland Cider Company is a 2 year old venture begun, according to the founders, out of frustration with not being able to locate ciders they enjoyed. So, rather than complain, they chose to step up, make their own, and sell it. That’s exactly what happened in 2012 when Jeff Parrish, an Oregon native, and his wife Lynda, an ex-patriot from the Somerset region of England, founded the Portland Cider Company.
The bulk of PCC’s production focuses on two ciders: “Kinda Dry” and “Sorta Sweet”. Both are produced by using apples cultivated in Pacific Northwest orchards. Additionally, both these ciders are made with primarily dessert apples including Honeycrisp, Granny Smith, Jonagold, Gala, Golden Delicious and Red Delicious. Additionally, PCC sells and pours a few other, small production ciders at their Portland Tap Room in Oregon City, about 20 miles outside Portland.
