Corvallis, Oregon’s 2 Towns Ciderhouse just released Nice & Naughty, a fall spiced cider for everyone. Available now on draft and in bottles, Nice & Naughty is spiced with whole cinnamon, nutmeg and clove.
2 Towns calls Nice & Naughty “a seamless transition to the harvest season, with flavors reminiscent of baked apple and pumpkin pie spice. Made with a touch of local honey, it’ll have you reminiscing about grandma’s pie, cooling on the kitchen table.”
At 10.5% ABV and including those classic winter spices, you might confuse Nice & Naughty with a holiday spiced beer. The cidery sent me a free bottle sample, and with a super sweet and tart juicy body and unmistakable cinnamon and nutmeg, it reminded me of an alcoholic spiced apple juice.
This year’s release of Nice & Naughty comes earlier than years past. “We are excited to release the Nice & Naughty this year right as the fall weather moves in and nature’s colors start to change,” said Dave Takush, head cidermaker. “You may be too old to trick or treat, but you’re never too old for Nice & Naughty.“
2 Towns Ciderhouse uses fresh-pressed 100% Northwest apples, no added sugars, and never uses artificial essences or flavorings. Instead, the ciderhouse allows the fruit to speak for itself. Nice & Naughty will be available in the 2 Towns Tap Room Starting October 2nd and to distributors on October 6th in bottles, and 1/6 bbls and 1/2 bbl kegs. This seasonal cider will be available throughout Oregon, Washington, and California.
