Portland Cider Company Expands Washington Distribution Footprint
CLACKAMAS, Ore. – March 20, 2018 – Portland Cider Company has announced a new distribution partnership with NW Beverages of Washington. Effective immediately, craft cider fans will discover a greater selection of Portland Cider products at their favorite retailers in NW Beverages distribution territory, which covers Washington state west of the Cascades, including the peninsula and islands.
In conjunction with Portland Cider Co.’s existing distribution relationship with Dickerson Distributors, which covers the Northern Washington distribution territory, Portland Cider products will now be available to purchase in the majority of the state.
“Washington is the state of apples, so of course craft cider is a popular choice, and we’ve enjoyed being in the market for the last two years,” explained Jeff Parrish, owner of Portland Cider Co. “We’re looking forward to expanding our distribution footprint and are excited to be working with NW Beverages to grow in Washington in 2018.”
A wide range of Portland Cider Co.’s award-winning ciders will be available year-round, along with seasonal and limited release favorites like Concord Grape, Pineapple, Pumpkin Spice, Cranberry, and more. Portland Cider Co. fans in the Seattle Metro area will be excited to see the new six-pack cans of the cider maker’s popular Sangria, Hop’ Rageous and Apple brands.
“We are very excited about our new partnership with the Portland Cider Co.,” said Kevin McCourt, cider brand manager at NW Beverages. “The craft cider industry continues to grow in the Pacific Northwest, and Portland Cider’s traditional English style ciders, using Northwest ingredients, is a great fit for the NW Beverages portfolio and our expanding network.”
Portland Cider Co. will be bringing its year-round and seasonal ciders to launch events in April and May, to be announced within the next few weeks. Follow @PortlandCider on Facebook to stay up to date.
