With four decades of experience in apple farming, an established beverage business through Watermill Winery and after many consultations with experts in English cider production, Blue Mountain Cider Company kicked off its success nearly a decade ago as one of the Oregon’s first modern cideries. Using their estate orchard and five traditional varieties, the Eden Ridge Hard Cider is the semi-sweet offering from the Milton-Freewater, Ore., cidery. Lightly carbonated, easy drinking and jammed with fresh apple aromas and simple tannin, this is a bona fide gateway drug into future, continued cider use.
