Ripe and juicy, Made Marion unites Northwest apples with whole locally grown Marionberries. The crown jewel of all blackberry varieties, Marionberries are a true testament to the bounty of Oregon.
Marion blackberries, or marionberries are a cultivated variety of blackberry originally developed right in our backyard by the USDA at Oregon State University in Corvallis. A cross between the ‘Chehalem’ and ‘Olallie’ blackberries, both of which have Loganberry parentage, these cane fruits have been called “the berry by which all others are measured.”
Marion blackberries have a wonderful, deep, ripe and juicy flavor profile and exceptionally high acid content compared to other blackberry varieties.
We use 100% Oregon grown Marionberries that are grown just down the road from the ciderhouse. These berries are pureed to release as much juice as possible, then added directly to the tank during fermentation. The result is a jammy-hued cider, that is fruit forward and berry tart. Oodalalee!
