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.
