RAW Cider Company practices traditional methods, mostly French, with a contemporary approach to attain clean, balanced and interesting products. A light handed approach guided by a solid understanding of biology and chemistry allows us to follow the fruit’s fermentation naturally and with little interference.
We hunt for good and interesting fruit in both Oregon and Washington. Some may have been foraged from 30 ft wild trees found off trail. Others may have been harvested from a 50 year old pear orchard overlooking Mt. Hood, and still other fruit is acquired through small local producers who are growing something special. Our flavors are achieved through thoughtful blends of these cider specific fruit. The diversity of the fruit itself peeks through every sip of our product.
