Bauman's Cider - Amphora Aged Cider (750 mL)

750 mL bottle of Bauman's Amphora Aged Cider

Bauman's Cider - Amphora Aged Cider (750 mL)

Bauman's Amphora Aged cider is made with a blend of apples from Ford Farms on Sauvie Island - an island rich with old farms and orchards on the Columbia River, just minutes outside of Downtown Portland, Oregon. The cider was fermented and left to age on the lees (the spent yeast - see below) in a clay Amphora vessel for 1 year. 

This is a dry cider light in body, with medium tannins and medium acid. Hazy in appearance. Flavor notes of candied pineapple, mineral, petrichor, and lemon zest. 

Amphora pots made of clay have been used to make and transport wine for 1,000s of years (as many as 8,000 years according to old archaeological records). Still used with regularity in many wine making regions around the world for it's host of benefits, including temperature control in warmer climates where the Amphora pots can be buried in the ground to keep cooler.

Modern wine makers are increasingly experimenting with clay Amphora for fermentation and bulk aging of wine and cider. Amphora can be thought of as a middle ground between steel and oak or wood barrels. Stainless steel allows for an oxygen-free environment which limits any wild or unwanted flavors into the cider. Oak, on the other hand, allows for ample oxygen to reach the juice, while the wood’s tannins can also affect the aromas and flavors of the cider. Like oak, clay is porous, so it does allow for some oxygen - giving the wine a deep and rich texture; but like steel it’s a neutral material that won’t impart any additional flavors.

Lees = the spent yeast that settles to the bottom of the fermentation vessel after it's done converting sugars into alcohol. Prolonged aging on the lees can impact the flavor and body of a wine or cider.

If you're looking for a full case of this or any other cider, please e-mail us and we'll setup a special order for you. We can usually get more of any cider we feature in our shop, and offer a discount on full-case special orders. Most bottled ciders come in 12-bottle cases, and canned ciders come in 24-can cases. Some rare or limited ciders may not be eligible for a case order discount, but we can still get you a full case.

We ship cider in boxes that safely hold 4-bottles, 6-bottles, or 12-bottles. Order in one of those quantities (or multiples of those quantities) to maximize your shipping value. For example, if you order 2-3 ciders, there will be room left in the box and it won't meaningfully change the shipping costs to fill the box.

We do have 1-bottle boxes, but in most all instances it will cost the same to ship you a full 4-bottle box.

Shipping to a business address will usually save you a few bucks!

Shipping cost estimates:

  • Pacific Northwest/West Coast: Shipping anywhere in the Pacific Northwest or West Coast is relatively inexpensive. Almost all box sizes cost $16-21 to ship. Same is true for most destinations in the Mountain Time Zone.
  • Central Standard Time Zone / Midwest: A 4-bottle or 6-bottle box will usually cost $18-24 to ship. A 12-bottle box will usually cost $22-30 to ship. Variance depends on weight and how far from a FedEx/UPS shipping center your delivery address is.
  • East Coast: A 4-bottle or 6-bottle box will usually cost $20-25 to ship. A 12-bottle box will usually cost $25-35 to ship. Variance depends on weight and how far from a FedEx/UPS shipping center your delivery address is.

Important Shipping Information:

  • We are able to ship cider to most, but not all, states.
  • Legally, someone 21+ must be present at the time of delivery to sign for the cider. We cannot ship to PO Boxes or AFO/FPO addresses.
  • Shipping prices vary by weight and destination. How far you are from Seattle (where we ship from), and remote vs. central your shipping destination is, and how heavy your box is will make shipping vary.
  • The bigger the box, the less you pay in shipping on a per-bottle basis. We ship in 1, 4, 6, and 12 bottle boxes - order in those quantities for the best shipping value. The size of the box matters as much as the weight, so don't leave empty slots in your bottle box! Shipping 1-2 bottles will cost the same as shipping 4-6 bottles in most cases. Shipping a 12-bottle box is usually only $3-5 more than shipping a 4-6 bottle box.
  • Re-delivery and returns are the responsibility of the customer.
  • We don't recommend shipping during periods of extreme weather. If your area has weather of concern, please contact us and we can hold your order. 

We can usually accommodate rush requests for delivery or pickup. Please e-mail us at or call/text us at (206)395-4008.
