BITTERSWEET | Heirloom Series 7.2% abv

Bittersweet apples are the backbone of traditional English cider and are some of the rarest apples in Canada. We grow several of these prized varietals, which can be heart breaking to grow, yet produce some of the world’s finest cider. An off dry cider expressing the classic phenolic character of this coveted fruit.

 

RUBY ROSE | Canadian Invasion Series 9.9% abv

A captivating semi-sweet cider infused with rhubarb, Ruby Rose is a beguiling vixen. She may be as aromatic as rhubarb pie, but her namesake is the merciless Rosa Rugosa, an invasive plant that threatens many coastal regions.

Bramble Bubbly combines the juicy sweetness of cider apples with the tart twist of organic blackberries which grow wild across Vancouver Island.   

 

CHERRY LANE | Canadian Invasion Series 9.9% abv

FORTIFIED CIDER | Dessert style ciders

 

Pomona | Fortified Series 17% abv
