This is a very different cider for us. It begins with a floral and grassy aroma. It is quite sparkling and bright in the mouth with citrus and hops up front and ending with a touch of honey and yeast. Overall, it is a very well balanced and flavourful cider of which we are very proud.

2021 was a hard year for us. It was only our second year of operation and we had almost total crop failure.

Our community ciders come from the generosity of family, neighbours and other local businesses willing to help us in a time of need. Therefore, we will be giving back to the community by giving 50% of the sales to two charities in The Ottawa Valley. The Ottawa River Institute and the Robbie Dean Foundation.

This very subtle cider was made from apples donated by MacLaren Orchards in Burnstown. To add complexity we wet hopped the cider for just four days with local Centennial Hops from Stonehedges Hops on Lake Dore. To finish off the cider and give it a natural carbonation we added a touch of local honey from Farmer’s Daughter Honey.

As with all our ciders, no sulphites or yeasts were added.
