Through the marriage of English traditions
and Northwest micro-cidery techniques, Portland Cider Co. 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.

A long time home fermenter, Jeff visited Lynda's hometown of Bristol shortly after their wedding, where they both visited several local cideries and learned about the craft of English cider. That trip was the catalyst that turned a hobby into a passion, which escalated quickly back at home. Soon, all their friends loved the Parrish homemade cider and were encouraging Jeff & Lynda to sell it - and thus Portland Cider Co. was born.

 
 

Authentically crafted Cider with quality Northwest ingredients

Our business is based on the belief that good cider comes from good fruit, honest practices, and attention to detail. 

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.  That's why we say, Drink it, it’s Good!

We don’t use 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.
