Ciders

ciderfarm “What is cider?” you ask. Simply put, cider is a fermented drink, like wine, but made from apples not grapes. Cider is a traditional farm product in many parts of the world.  It was once very popular in North America before Prohibition in the early 1900s. The ban on alcohol was short-lived, but most of the old cider orchards didn’t survive.  Sea Cider seeks to revive the artisan cider tradition. 

We grow certified organic* heritage apples selected for their superior cider qualities.

Our apples are all pressed here at the farm using the traditional rack and cloth method.  We ferment the juice slowly with champagne yeasts, then age it to perfection. The result: a selection of critically acclaimed artisan ciders.

Robust to delicate, still to sparkling, each Sea Cider label promises a balance of flavours and aromas.

*The apples we grow are certified organic by the Pacific Agriculture Certification Society. PACS# 16-259.
