FLAGSHIP CIDERS

Hard Apple


Style: Apple Hard Cider

Alcohol: 6.4 % ABV*

Sweetness: Dry (Less than 1.0% residual sugar)

Ingredients: Northwest Apple Blend**, Yeast, Sulfites (less than 50 ppm total)

Maker's Notes: The Pacific Northwest is known for growing high acid apples and loving tart, crisp ciders. Our Hard Apple has the aroma of fresh dessert apples and a yeast character comparable to a light bodied Chardonnay. The bubbly dry finish is tuned for regular consumption. Enjoy with creamy cheeses, fatty fish, and buttery pasta.

Bronze - GLINTCAP 2016 (Modern Dry Category)


Marionberry


Style: Berry Hard Cider

Alcohol: 6.4 % ABV*

Sweetness: Semi-Dry (1.0 - 2.0 % Residual Sugar)

Ingredients: Northwest Apple Blend**, Oregon-grown Marionberries, Yeast, Sulfite (less than 50 ppm total)

Maker's Notes: Berry cider is popular, but not all are made equal. Instead of using berry concentrates and extracts, Swift uses whole Oregon-grown Marionberries that are pureed and blended with a base of hard cider before aging. By giving the cider extended contact with berry skins, we get more intense flavor and aroma without picking up the excessive sweetness that you would get from a concentrate. The Marionberry is bold and fruity. We love drinking it with spicy curries, citrusy salads, and chocolaty desserts.

Pineapple Hop


Style: Dry-Hopped Fruit Cider

Alcohol: 6.5 % ABV*

Sweetness: Semi-Dry (1.0 - 2.0 % Residual Sugar)

Ingredients: Northwest Apple Blend**, Pineapples, Hops (Ekuanot, Centennial, Chinook) Yeast, Sulfites (less than 50 ppm total)

Maker's Notes: Pineapples and hops provide a juicy tropical aroma that unfolds into a fruity semi-dry finish. The challenge with bold ingredients is balance and we've made it our job to give you just the right amount of hop bitterness to balance out the sweet pineapple. As with our other fruit ciders, we age this one on pureed pineapples, instead to using concentrates or extracts. You get authentic flavor without the sketchy ingredients. We like Pineapple Hop with shrimp, tacos, and mixed into tropical cocktails.

Peach Oak


Style: Oak-aged Fruit Cider

Alcohol: 6.4 % ABV*

Sweetness: Dry (Less than 1.0% residual sugar)

Ingredients: Northwest Apple Blend**, Oregon-grown yellow peaches, Yeast, French oak, Sulfites (less than 50 ppm total)

Maker's Notes: The sweet scent of an Oregon yellow peach is meant for the spicy vanilla of French oak. We've stepped up the peach addition this year and we love the extra acid it brings. The refined toasted wood character, and the semi-dry finish makes this popular with wine drinkers and cider geeks. We like it served with a croissant, a crepe, and sometimes a frosted cider donut.

Spiced Blood Orange


Style: Spiced Fruit Cider

Alcohol: 6.4 % ABV*

Sweetness: Semi-Dry (Less than 2.0% residual sugar)

Ingredients: Northwest Apple Blend**, Blood Oranges, Orange Peel, Cinnamon, Cardamom, Yeast, Sulfites

Maker's Notes: The cold of winter calls for something spicy and and full of citrus to keep you warm. By aging the cider on blood orange puree, we gain a tart citrus acidity that brightens up the winter spice blend of cinnamon and cardamom. With just the right amount of residual sugar, this one will give you a few extra calories to fight off the winter chill. Try this cider with you favorite holiday roast or keep it simple and use it to wash down that stack of sugar cookies.
