Dark Currant Cider mixes black currants and apples
December 22, 2015
Corvallis, Ore.-based 2 Towns Ciderhouse announced the release of its latest limited-release cider — The Dark Currant. The winter cider combines apples and local black currants.

The result is a 6 percent alcohol-by-volume cider rich in tannins with notes of cherry, rose and light wood, it adds.
