375 mL bottle of Raging Cider & Mead Co. West Coast Pommeau

Raging Cider's West Coast Pommeau is made annually using fresh juice from the same blend of apple varieties: Hyslop crabapple & old cultivar honeyed Golden Delicious. Each year the apples express themselves differently. The fresh juice is blended with apple brandy and barrel aged for at least two years prior to bottling.

Raging uses a solera method for the apple brandy used in their pommeau, constantly adding a fresh vintage of brandy to the prior year's blend. This 2021 vintage uses brandy between 1 & 4 years old.

Rich on the palette with flavors that balance between caramel, spiced apple, honey, and leather. This is best enjoyed at room temp poured over a cube of ice as an aperitif, digestif, or as a decadent indulgence.

About Raging Cider & Mead Company: Head cider maker Dave Carr makes a range of excellent cider, perry, mead, wine, and coferments in partnership with his family at their San Diego based cidery. Their ciders are all made with locally sourced fruit and honey from San Diego County - very rare amongst cideries in the area, most of which primarily use juice brought in from near and far. Dave and his family forage apples and pears and help manage several orchards throughout San Diego County. The many mountains and canyons just east of San Diego on the way to Julian, California are an abundant source of interesting fruit. The unique growing conditions of these mountains often result in higher levels of acid as well as higher sugar content (and thus higher alcohol). Dave uses natural fermentation methods (wild fermentation via native yeast) on the fruit for all of his ciders. Between the cidermaking style and the unique qualities of the fruit, these small batch ciders are all one of a kind.

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.¬†
