Swift Dry Cider is a Portland cider-maker trying to revive the quality and craftsmanship of pre-Prohibition hard cider in America. Their ciders are made from locally-grown apples, freshly pressed and naturally fermented. Come and taste their complex and balanced hard ciders, as well as their very special draft Heirloom Batch cider, the “Sauvie Island Keeved Cider.” The keeved style of cider dates back hundreds of years to traditional cidermakers in France and England, who developed the technique to make a naturally sweet, stable cider without added sugars. This style relies on high tannin, bittersweet cider apples and fastidious attention to fermentation. The result is a very unique cider that showcases the truest flavors of the apple.
