Portland Cider Co.’s Blueberry Bourbon Basil cider is inspired by Blue Star Donuts’ sweet and colorful Blueberry Bourbon Basil donut, which combines fresh sweet blueberries and fragrant basil with a touch of local bourbon for a hint of caramel depth.
Like the donut, Portland Cider Co.’s Blueberry Bourbon Basil (6% ABV) features a blend of bright blueberries, fresh herbal basil, and deep rich bourbon notes from oak aging.
“By supporting each other and cross-promoting our cider and [Blue Star’s] donuts, our hope is to strengthen the message of supporting small, independently-owned Portland businesses this holiday season,” said Helen Lewis, Portland Cider Co. sales director, in a press release.
The seasonal release is available in six-pack 12 oz. cans in addition to single 19.2 oz. cans and draft kegs. It can be found at Portland Cider Co.’s two taprooms as well as Blue Star Donuts Mississippi and Division locations for walk-ups, pre-orders, and deliveries through Caviar and DoorDash.
It can also be found at select retailers in Oregon, Washington, Northern Idaho, and Northern California.
