Made specially for our Harvest Fest on the farm, this is a blend of our farm fresh apples and pears, sweetened with a little bit of vanilla and cinnamon. Tastes like harvest on the farm. Feel free to mull this one and put on some wool socks in front of the fire.
Another fun collaboration, this time with cider makers from Japan! Our friends from OK,Adam Hard Cider came to visit and brought along some apple juice from Akita, the apple growing region in Japan. We blended their apples with our apples and made a small batch of this easy-drinking cider, that will be sold in both Japan and Oregon!
This is our Imperial Golden Russet single-varietal, aged in Pinot Noir barrels for 4 months. The oak aging process brings a lovely smoothness and complexity to this rich and strong offering, which won a Double Gold medal at SIP Magazine’s Best of the Northwest Cider Awards.
We reserved some of the juice from the Kristof Orchard cider and aged it in neutral oak barrels, then
blended it with award-winning Ice Cider from Eden Specialty Ciders in Vermont. This cider took home a
Gold medal from GLINTCAP and the Double Gold in SIP Magazine’s Best of the Northwest.
The Kristof family decided to replant their historic cherry orchards in Yamhill, OR with apples when their cherry trees began to decline. In 2021, we brought their apples here to Bauman’s, pressed and fermented them. Together we tasted and trialed and came up with a method and blend we love, which won Best in Class at the Great Lakes International Cider and Perry Competition!
This incredibly small batch of cider was made by aging our cider in freshly-emptied Mezcal Barrels for 5 months. The end result is a delicately balanced cider that showcases the unique, lightly smoky flavors Mezcal is known for.
The same amazing red-fleshed Mountain Rose apples as our regular batch, but instead of letting it ferment to dry in the tank and then back-sweetening, we bottle before it finished its primary fermentation. This traditional process allows the final bit of fermentation to create natural carbonation and generally will finish to a dry cider with intriguing mouthfeel.
Inspired by an incredible single-varietal Stoke Red cider made by Oliver's Fine Cider in Hereford, England, this classic Somerset heirloom varietal brings a lot of tannins and very interesting aromatics. These apples were grown at nearby Idyll Acres in Aumsville, Oregon.
Brown Snout is an English cider apple that is high in tannins, but moderate in acids. We allowed these beautiful apples to spontaneously ferment, and the combined effect of the wild yeasts with the high tannins and sugars bring a wonderful caramel richness, with notes of honey and molasses. This cider won a Platinum medal in SIP Magazine’s Best of the Northwest Cider Awards 2022.
Orchard Select is a collaboration between our orchardist and our cider makers to create an interesting yet approachable cider, representative of each harvest. This blend is Porter's Perfection, Golden Russet, Yarlington Mill, and Gravenstein. Rich, savory, tannic, and the winner of SIP Magazine’s Best of the Northwest Double Gold medal.
Logans are generally one of the first berries of the season, and can’t be picked with a machine as they are too delicate and soft. The quintessential berry flavor, this cider is well balanced and semi-dry with the sweetness from the Logans coming out from start to finish.

My Grandpa Clyde was born in 1921, on the farm where he would live his entire 92 years. Clyde’s Dry cider is my tribute to his life and his love of the farm and is a blend of more than a dozen varietals, including sweets and sharps grown on the family farm. It draws it’s tannic character from the blend and the addition of some locally-picked Manchurian Crab apples.

With the taste of islands, sun and sailboats, our Guava Grapefruit cider is a delicious blend of our base apple cider, the tropical sweetness of guavas and the tangy zing of grapefruit infused with pink peppercorns for a little spice.
Sweet from the peaches and tart from the berries, this fun summer cider captures that fleeting summer day where the sun is shining and the berries and peaches are in their prime! Enjoy it before it’s gone…

Stephen Bauman was my Great-Grandfather, who put in the early cider apple orchards on the farm. Stories of friends and family sharing pints of his cider were my inspiration for wanting to make and share cider now. This cider is a blend of apples from the family farm and just a splash of fresh juice from the latest pressing of our winter dessert apples. It’s nicely balanced with a subtle sweetness and a dry finish – just like an apple from the farm.

We aged some of our base cider in Mezcal barrels imported from Mexico. After soaking in the aromatics of the smoky Mezcal for a few months, we infused it with dried dragonfruit and lime juice. Tastes like lychee and toasted coconut, and spring break in Tijuana. ;)
Our French Bittersweet is a blend of Michelin, Domaine, Marie Menard, Doux Mon, and Muscat de Lens apples. The cider is off-dry, high in tannins, with very mild acidity. You will notice notes of baked apple, blood orange and walnut, and it’s a wonderful cider to pair with food, especially stinky French cheeses.
I decided to blend the strawberries with mint for this cider, in part because I am a huge fan of cocktails made with a generous muddling of mint, but also simply because the two crops abound with color and flavor in the late spring/early summer here in the Willamette Valley. I like the balance of the refined vegetal minty-ness with the all-out, no holds barred passion of strawberries.
Our Orchard Select series is a collaboration between our orchardist and our cider makers to create an interesting yet approachable cider representative of each harvest. This blend has notes of baked apple, green grapes and lemon zest. It's a blend of Michelin, Ellis Bitter, Golden Russet, and Grimes Golden, among others.
A semi-dry cocktail inspired cider we made to pair with the Oregon weather! It’s a cider blended with fresh squeezed limes, grated ginger, caramelized sugar and aged with a rum stave - best enjoyed with friends and conversation!!
