So how did Portland Cider Co. come up with such a special beverage? “This year we blended in fresh cranberry juice after fermentation to create a more rich and festive cider,” said Deron Davenport, Cidermaker for Portland Cider Co. in a statemen. “It’s a beautiful ruby red and it’s bursting with cranberry flavor, perfect for the holidays.”
