The ‘Pop the Cork’ Donut Features Westport Rivers’ Prosecco-style Farmer’s Fizz


PRESS RELEASE / May 4, 2020 (Boston, MA and Saugus, MA)  – Kane’s Donuts is pleased to announce a collaboration with Westport-based Westport Rivers Vineyard & Winery for a limited-edition May flavor of the month in honor of Kane’s 65th Anniversary and Mother’s Day – the ‘Pop the Cork’ Donut. This scrumptious donut creation will be available in May at all three Kane’s Donuts’ locations: Kane’s Legacy (120 Lincoln Saugus); Kane’s Flagship (1575 Broadway, on Rt. 1 at Essex Landing in Saugus), and Kane’s Downtown (90 Oliver St. in Boston’s Financial District, at International Place).

Using Westport Rivers Vineyard & Winery’s Farmer’s Fizz, Kane’s has crafted this celebratory delight. The ‘Pop the Cork’ Donut is a yeast-style donut frosted with a reduction of the award-winning vineyard’s Prosecco-style Farmer’s Fizz that has been infused into Kane’s classic honey-glaz

“We are huge fans of Kane’s and are so excited to be partnering with them to celebrate their 65th Anniversary and Mother’s Day,” said Rob Russell of Westport Rivers Vineyard & Winery. “The limited-edition donut is an amazing opportunity to introduce more Bostonians to our brand and delicious local wines.”

The Westport Rivers Vineyard & Winery Farmer’s Fizz is a Prosecco-style sparkling wine featuring flavors of elderflower, green apple and Lemonhead candy, chamomile, and dried apricot, making for a juicy and crisp wine perfect for spring.

For the month of May, Kane’s is also featuring a Honey Blueberry Donut, a yeast-style donut bursting with blueberry filling and finished with Kane’s signature honey-glaze along with a Vanilla-Frosted M&M Donut, a pillowy yeast donut with a mild vanilla frosting and crunchy mini-M&Ms.

The monthly Gluten Free options are Old Fashioned Coconut, a rich gluten free cake-style donut, dipped in honey glaze and rolled in sweetened shredded coconut and Plain Chocolate Frosted, a traditional chocolate gluten free donut slathered with delicious chocolate frosting.

Paul Delios, co-owner and president of Kane’s Donuts, adds, “We take pride in collaborating with other like-minded companies, so partnering with a company like Westport Rivers that has so much history in the state was the perfect fit to celebrate our 65th Anniversary and the women who raised us.”

About Kane’s Donuts

Kane’s Donuts is New England’s legacy donut shop, ranked top-10 in the United States for serving handcrafted donuts and treats that are made fresh daily, and with local ingredients. Known for a superior daily selection of artisanal flavors and rotating monthly favorites, its continuous 64 years of service began with Kanes’ now-iconic “Legacy” store, which opened in 1955 in Saugus, Mass., and remains a local favorite for serving handmade products, seven days a week. For its 60th anniversary in March 2015, Kane’s opened a second location (“Kane’s Downtown”) in the heart of Boston’s financial district at International Place; and in March 2019, Kane’s reimagined the donut-buying experience with “Kane’s Flagship,” its largest location (with a drive-through and donut-prep observation area) at Essex Landing in Saugus. In 2018, Kane’s was named “Best Donut” by both Boston Magazine and the Improper Bostonian, and in 2019 won “Best of the North Shore” by North Shore magazine. It has appeared in Travel + Leisure, Saveur and Yankee magazines, among others; it’s consistently recognized by the Boston Globe, Boston Herald and local media; and has earned local and national attention for what many consider the best gluten-free cake donuts available at a traditional donut shop.
