Double Mountain has expanded to growing our own apples, cherries, and pears. Using our own press, our ciders are never back-sweetened, letting the quality and freshness of the fruit shine as nature intended. We use fruit sourced from our orchard and the orchard friends abundant in the Hood River Valley.
For our flagship cider, we kept it simple and local. Newtown’s and old-world cider apples from the Double Mountain Orchard are pressed and fermented on a house yeast strain. We gave it plenty of time to dry out and develop wondrous aromas of juicy pear, lychee, green fruit, and chamomile. It finishes tart, crisp, dry, and quenching.
Earthy tartness and apple goodness from this cider pressed from apples all grown at Double Mountain’s Orchard here in Hood River.
Leave your blush at home; it’s Rosé time. This year’s iteration is built on a backbone of pink-fleshed Mountain Rose and Pink Pearl apples and fermented with a super clean white wine yeast. Muscadine grape and honeysuckle aromas dominate, while lingonberry and raspberry sorbet notes flirt with your pallet. It’s a cider meant for the sunny days we all yearn for.
The Kingston Black apple has an amazing balance of tannins, acid and sugar. Tart and dry, with just a touch of ‘UK funk’.
Aromas of dry orange blossom and sprightly honeydew. The Harrison apple, grown specifically for cider, was once thought lost.
The Hood River Valley produces some of the best pears in the world. We took advantage of our local resources and pressed Starkrimson and Comice pears together for this Perry. And oh, is it sheer joy. Light aromas of honey, juicy pear, and green apple end in a delicately sweet, gracefully tart and crisp pear cider.
A pear and apple blend with notes of peach cobbler that transition into a citrus aromatic delight, ending in an easy, off-dry finish.
Little Martha English Perry
Aromas of cherry blossom, wildflower, and fresh applewood. Dry citrus and Meyer lemon aromas round out this pear cider.
Little Spy Pet-Nat
Wild fermantation and naturally carbonated to maximize the fruit’s expression. Notes of citron, Riesling grape, and ripe pear.
