Ciders

Great cider starts in the orchard. We like to keep it wild with our farming and ferments, encouraging the natural microbiome to express itself through our cider. We intervene very little in the fermentation process, shepherding the spontaneous action that transforms our apple juice into delicious cider. Our ciders are alive and unfiltered, handmade with minimal sulphites.

2021 Crabby-pear

Crabby-Pear is a 50/50 Bartlett Pear and Hyslop Crabapple split. For the 2021 vintage we allowed the Bartlett Pear mash to sit on it’s own pomace and juices overnight, adding the crabapples the next day. The resulting cider is  fragrant, mouth-watering, and round. It’s all pears, flowers, and vanilla on the nose, orchard fruit and green tea on the palate.  

We make a limited supply of this popular cider so make sure to try it while you can!

8% alcohol in 750ml bottles.

2021 PLUM

-SOLD OUT-

Plum is a small batch cider made by macerating whole Italian Kiss plums in Crabapple juice for one week. The rolling hills of our farm have these plums planted on key embankments as a way to decrease erosion. As there is not enough fruit for wholesale farmed production they are often forgotten about fruit used for this task alone. This year we decided to take them for cider instead!

Fragrant, heady, and tart.
This cider is super limited so make sure to try it while you can.
Made with our family’s Certified Organic fruit.

Cannery brewing collab - cider saison*limited release*

-SOLD OUT-
Our Cider-Saison collaboration started with a Saison wart made by The Cannery Brewing, we then added Spartan apple juice, and open-top fermented it all on Red Delicious mash. A little cider twist on a very traditional Saison. Available at the Cannery Brewing on tap, or from Creek & Gully in Can!
 
This cider is absolutely delicious. Light and refreshing – great for a sunny spring day.

Cherry Can

Cherry Can was made using cherries grown by some of our favourite family members whose cherry crops were affected by the 2021 Heat Dome. We cold soaked five varieties of cherries — white, red, and black: Rainiers, Sweet-Notes, Sweethearts, Lapins, and Cristalinas in 2020 base cider for two months, before can-conditioning. 
 
This cider is very concentrated, woodsy, and tart – think red forest fruits.

This year it is primarily MacIntosh, Red Delicious, and Braeburn but also contains Newtown Pippin, Pink Lady, and Ambrosia.
