Pirate’s Plank is our flagship cider. To us, this is what cider is all about. Old world style, made with bittersharp cider apples and bottle conditioned. This sparkling estate cider is bone-dry without being acidic and offers up soft tannins and complex apple flavors. Experience earthy notes of mushrooms and smoke with a hint of a barnyard flavor balanced by minerality. Pirate’s Plank has the lovely late orchard nose and rich gold color that make this a true classic. Its name is a nod to the rich maritime history of Port Townsend, WA – our home. This is a certified organic cider.
