Raspberry Cosmic Crisp® lands in stores this month as an extension of 2 Towns’ Cosmic Explorer Series Imperial line
Corvallis, Ore. – July 22, 2022 – Expanding its interstellar imperial series into new galaxies, 2 Towns Ciderhouse launches Raspberry Cosmic Crisp®, the fourth imperial cider in its astronomically successful, high ABV, Cosmic Explorer Series line.
Hitting earthling stores this month, Raspberry Cosmic Crisp® joins Blueberry Cosmic Crisp® and Tropical Cosmic Crisp® (launched in February this year) along with the original Cosmic Crisp® (launched in 2021) to further expand upon the Cosmic Explorer Series–the high ABV, imperial flagship line from 2 Towns.
All four high gravity ciders are crafted with Cosmic Crisp® apples and designed to transport you straight across the galaxy. Raspberry Cosmic Crisp® is crafted with Northwest raspberries, Oregon cranberries, and Cosmic Crisp® apples, and will have you chasing flow and grabbing air across the galactic superwave.
“When you pair the bright, high-acid profile of the Cosmic Crisp® apple with tart, juicy Pacific Northwest raspberries, the result is astronomical!” says Dave Takush, head cider-maker. “This new raspberry rendition makes a stellar addition to the Cosmic Explorer Series line–all are very authentic, very approachable, and remain…out of this world.”
The Cosmic Crisp® apple is the work of 20 years of study and research by Washington State University, resulting in a classically bred hybrid of Honeycrisp and Enterprise varieties. The resulting fruit is a large, round, crisp, and super juicy apple that is perfect for snacking, baking, and clearly, cider making. Grown in Washington State, this brand of apples have a beautiful rich red that almost sparkles with starburst-like lenticels—which is where the name “Cosmic” comes from.
“We are thrilled to partner with 2 Towns Ciderhouse and explore another incredible flavor frontier within the Cosmic Explorer Series,” said Kathryn Grandy, Chief Marketing Officer for Proprietary Variety Management, who markets the Cosmic Crisp® brand apple. “Pacific Northwest raspberries are a natural complement to Washington grown Cosmic Crisp® apples, and this incredible family of ciders. Our brands and partnership have so many synergies and it’s been a blast to work together on products as well as promotions.”
