AVAILABLE CIDERS TO TASTE | Listed from dry to sweet

 

WILD ENGLISH | Heirloom Series 7.2% abv

Earthy, robust and ultra-dry, this cider not for the faint of heart. Named for the wild yeast fermentation of English cider apples, Wild English delivers the country aromas of a crisp autumn day in the orchard.

 

KINGS & SPIES | Heirloom Series 8% abv

A cider fit for royalty or rogues. Crafted from King apples, Northern Spies and other apples of mysterious lineage, this off-dry cider is crowd-sourced and community-minded to the core.

 

BITTERSWEET | Heirloom Series 7.2% abv

Bittersweet apples are the backbone of traditional English cider and are some of the rarest apples in Canada. Our Bittersweet cider is an off-dry sparkler expressing the classic phenolic character of this coveted fruit.

 

PIPPINS | Heirloom Series 9.5% abv

Juicy, expressive, and playful on the tongue, Pippins reveals why cider was North America’s favourite drink before prohibition.

 

GINGER PERRY | Barrel series 12% abv

The best of BC apples are fermented with champagne yeast before being mixed with our farm-made ginger and juniper bitters. This is blended with the dry base and sweetened with unfermented pear juice. Expect zesty notes of ginger and juniper mingle with a sweet and lively acidity to create a perfectly-balanced, semi-sweet union.

 

BRAMBLE BUBBLY | Canadian Invasion Series 9.9% abv

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

 

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. A Sea Cider staff favourite!

 

RUMRUNNER | Barrel Series 12.5% abv

The secret to Rumrunner lies in the barrel. With rich notes of molasses and rum, this cider is our homage to Prohibition and the illicit history of running rum along the picturesque Cordova Channel.  

 

WASSAIL | Barrel Series 14% abv

Spiced with orange peel and cloves, our Wassail spiced cider harkens back to the wassailing tradition of drinking spiced cider and singing to the apple orchard.

 

BIRDS & THE BEES | Canadian Invasion Series 9.9% abv

The birds and the bees are a welcome sign of spring, and we thought we’d pay tribute to the pollination season with a cider in their honour. Our farm-crafted apple cider is blended with Vancouver Island fireweed honey and lemon bitters for a zesty finish buzzing with goodness.

 

CHERRY LANE | Canadian Invasion Series 9.9% abv

Victoria is known for its cherry trees for good reason – their blossoms herald the beginning of spring as they festoon city boulevards. With Cherry Lane, we raise a glass to their less showy cousins – Bitter Cherry, Choke Cherry and Pin Cherry – all native to BC.

 

FORTIFIED CIDER | Dessert style ciders

 

POMMEAU | Fortified Series 19% abv

Our homage to traditional French cider making, Pommeau blends cider eau de vie with organic Snow apples into a dessert style cider, with notes of dried fruit and oak.

 

POMONA | Fortified Series 17% abv

Inspired by the Roman Goddess of Apples, this still cider is a concentrated elixir hand crafted by freezing then slowly fermenting a single varietal of crab-apple, yielding a dessert-style cider with apricot and confectionery notes.

 

RASPBERRY ANNE | Fortified Series 17% abv

Inspired by the imaginative, talkative red haired protagonist of the Canadian Novel, Anne of Green Gables. Notes of raspberry, apple and oak with a luscious velvety finish. Raise a glass to the Maritimer who once said bright red drinks “taste twice as good as any other colour”

 

BLACK APPLEJACK | Fortified Series 17% abv

A mix of hard cider, eau de vie and sun-kissed blackberry sweetness, Black Applejack pays tribute to the traditional jacking methods of cider distilling.
