Ciderie Milton- The Lasnier Family has owned orchards in Ste-Cécile-de-Milton since 1927. It is now the fourth generation that produces apples on ancestral lands. Around 1966, the Lasniers began producing artisanal cider for the needs of the family and their many guests. Now, the methods have changed, but one thing remains: the desire to always offer the best to our customers!
In 2017, Les Vergers de la Colline became Milton Cider House, a daring and inspiring cider leader in Quebec! A change that allows the company to clarify what it has become and showcase the exceptional quality of its products.

Authentic and refreshing, this unique sparkling cider has 5.7% alcohol and is made of 100% fresh apples harvested in our orchards. The apples are hand-picked in the fall when they have reached their full maturity and the aromatic components and sugar are at their peak. They are pressed and the fresh juice is then fermented. The fermentation takes place slowly over several weeks followed by a maturing and a stabilization period which allows the aromas and the flavours to fully express themselves.

Pale yellow with hints of green, it is medium body on the palate, with a great balance between fruit, crisp zest, and tartness. Talk about fresh! This product is very unique in terms of true freshness and does not come around that often.
Ice Cider Rose- Elaborated by cryo-concentration: 100% Geneva apples, harvested in September and kept in a freezing cold storage until January. Then they are crushed and the juice is put outside for freezing (- 10oC) for a few weeks. The water freezes and separate from the juice. Only the concentrated and sweetest juice is collected and fermented for a few weeks in stainless steel tanks. No sugar is added to the juice prior, during or after fermentation.

Rose Methode Champenoise- This cider is VERY rare. Made 100% with Geneva apples (unique apples with red flesh), this product is a must for anybody who loves cider.

Tod Creek Craft Cider- Named after the creek that runs through the orchard grounds, Tod Creek Craft Cider is a new beginning for this property. Formerly a working dairy for the 50’s to 70’s, it has now become Vancouver Island’s third commercial cidery. After more than a few years of neglect from previous owners, this eight acre spread is now home to a traditional, small batch cidery. There is a lot of work ahead of us to restore this old farm, and we invite you to follow us over the years as we grow and improve the land.

Luk Rosé- is a young, refreshing cider. Made with McIntosh and Geneva apples, this light cider is carbonated at the bottling stage.

Michel Jodoin comes from 4 generations of apple growers. In 1988 he gets one of the first permits to make cider, and decide to bottle. That first year he sold 150 bottles. Michel Jodoin perfects his knowledge by working in Brittany, Normandy, and Champagne, combination of cider making techniques as well as choices of apples, and also get the absolute best in bottle re-fermenting (Methode Champenoise) to aim for the best products possible. in 1999, he gets a distilling permit which allows him to create three unique apple based brandies, and becomes the first Quebec distillery. In 2004 he sold more than 100,000 bottles. He is probably the largest Quebec cider producer, as well as the best! Some of our micro breweries and pubs get his Tentation cider in kegs for their restaurants and bars. Le Trou du Diable pushes further more by buying back some of the barrels Michel Jodoin used to age his apple brandy (very close to Calvados with a hint of Single Malt Scotch woodsy tones), to create the famous La Buteuse Brassin Special.

The Cyder Market hard cider information for cider makers and drinkers for Canada.

Sea Cider- “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 CIDERS:  


Country Premium Cider- Fresh and crisp, like a perfectly ripe apple, our flagship product is a dry sparkling cider. It offers aromas of sweet Ida Red apples and its good acidity delivers a pleasing finish.

Waupoos Premium Cider- Made from late harvest and European cider apples, Waupoos Premium Cider is semi-sweet and sparkling. Perfectly balanced, it offers a lively body, full fruity flavours and refreshing finish.

Country 2000- A naturally sparkling cider made using the méthode champenoise (champagne method). Expertly balanced, County 2000 is elegant and complex with small bubbles and lovely fruity flavours—just like a fine champagne.

Prince Edward County Ice Cider- Russet, Ida Red and Northern Spy apples, varieties that do not fall when ripe, but remain on the tree through freezing temperatures, are used to craft our award winning ice cider.

Feral Cider- A sweet cider made with late season apples, which features the taste of fresh raspberries and cranberries. Lively, with persistent bubbles.


Indian Point- A dry, white wine made with Northern Spy apples. Soft and delicate, Indian Point is a pleasing alternative to traditional wine that offers the lingering taste of apples.


Spirit Tree Cider- Our cider is made with only tree-picked apples and contains no dropped apples (apples that have fallen on the ground). The cider is treated with our Cidersure UV Processor prior to being bottled. This is an FDA approved process that is an equally safe alternative to heat pasteurization. UV treatment is a non-thermal process that meets FDA guidelines to obtain a 5-log reduction in pertinent pathogens. This is equivalent to being 99.999% safe. By not heating the cider, we can preserve all of the flavour, nutrients and quality of the cider while still creating a safe to drink product. We offer our traditional blended cider along with several single varietal ciders such as Crabapple and Gala in season.

THE CIDERS:  


CID- They harvest their orchards’ fruits when they are well ripe. The small apples are then pressed. The small apple peels are left to macerate with the must. This will give the rosé color, among other positive advantages of doing so. Then, they proceed with the sludge removal and addition of yeast. From that moment on, the fermentation process begins. During the fermentation period, the temperature is rigorously controlled to preserve the flavors and aromas. Finally, after filtering and adding bubbles, this delicious, unique and gorgeous cider is bottled. 6.4% ABV, CO2 pressure at 3.4. Apples varieties: Honey Crisp, Cortland, and Dolgo crabapple.

Ice Cider- is made with McIntosh, Spartan, and Empire apples, with the method of cryoconcentration. Since this data sheet was created it has won three more awards, the latest being the Coupe des Nations with a Gold Medal this year! The current vintage is 2006. It has 180mg of residual sugar/liter, and carries an acidity of 6gr/liter. Once again, quantities are extremely small.

THE CIDER:  

McKeown Original Cider- was the first cider produced by McKeown Cidery in September 2004. I’ts a classic fruity cider that contains 5,7% alcohol per volume. This cider is made of 100% fresh apples from our orchards in Rougemont. It has a bright golden straw color, a clean fruity nose with cooked apple and spice aromas. True to the nose the flavors are completed by the fresh apple taste with a well-balanced acidity.

The County Cider Company is an artisanal cider producer—our ciders are made with 100% pure apple juice from locally sourced apples. And while making cider is a year-round process, it essentially begins in autumn, once the apples have achieved the perfect balance of natural sugars and acids.

Here at Merridale, we use cider apple varieties that have been proven for centuries in England, France, and Germany to make the best cider. All of our ciders are made from 100% pure juice, and only the first pressing is used. We do not add water or re-press the apples to increase the yield because we believe this compromises the flavour. Being purists, we do not use concentrates, chemicals at bottling, pasteurization, or fine filtration of juice. We ferment our juice slowly and naturally, to delicately bring out all of the flavour the fruit has to offer. The Cowichan Valley mirrors the optimum growing and climate conditions of the renowned cider regions in the UK and Europe. Merridale’s location was chosen, after years of research, as the perfect combination of climate, aspect and soil conditions to grow world-class fruit (our terroire). As with fine wines, you need world-class fruit to make a world-class beverage! We have two rows of Jonnagold apples, the only dessert apples in the orchard. The rest are cider-specific varieties like Tremlett’s Bitter, Michelin, Yarlington Mill, Dabinett, Chisel Jersey, Kermerien, Julienne, Judaine, Frequin Rouge, and Hauxapfel.

THE CIDERS:  


Dublin's Pub MC Rousse- is a quality cider made ​​from the marriage of the best varieties of apples from our orchards and a premium caramel. The Irish Red, as it is nicknamed, following a fair process of preparing for the Irish traditional method. Enjoy this cider quality that will appeal to slightly stronger flavor lovers. Cheers! 
Dublin's Pub MC- is a premium cider engineered from the best varieties of apple orchards. Each of the stages of selection, assembly and fermentation follows a rigorous process, true to the traditional Irish method. 
Pomme de Coeur- Made from apples picked during the first autumn frosts, Pomme de Coeur will seduce you with its beautiful amber colour and complex aromas of apricot, honey, melon and almonds. Smooth in the mouth and with a richness of flavour that complements the natural acids of the fruit, this cider is best served with fine desserts and cheeses.

Neige Ice Cider- La Face Cachée de la Pomme was born from François Pouliot’s inventiveness. This 29-year-old video and movie producer cherished a dream: to produce the finest of Québec’s terroir… in a bottle! In 1994, he acquired an orchard in Hemmingford, Montérégie. Inspired by the harsh winters and apple trees that surrounded him, he contributed to the development of the very first ice ciders — a true novelty at the time. In 1998, artist Stéphanie Beaudoin fell for the man’s charm… andNeige! Making a statement, the cidery became a reflection of its contemporary roots, modeled after the image of its young founders and this fabulous new “know-how” in Québec, the ice cider. In 2007, theFundacion de la sidra in Spain recognized them for their contribution to the development of ice cider and for introducing it to the market in Québec and the rest of the world. The family estate has received over 90 international awards. As for Neige, this product is now enjoyed in more than 20 countries including Canada, France, England, Spain and the United States.

 Thornbury Premium Cider- is traditionally crafted in small batches from locally sourced, fresh-pressed apples in our historic location in Thornbury, Ontario – the heart of apple country.

Canada-  Quebec cider is considered a traditional alcoholic beverage. It is generally sold in 750 ml bottles, has an alcohol content generally between 7% and 13% (with aperitifs ciders having alcohol content up to 20%), and can be served as a substitute for wine. Cider making was, however, forbidden from the early years of the British rule as it was in direct conflict with established British brewers' interests (most notably John Molson). In recent years, a unique variety has emerged on the market: ice cider. This type of cider is made from apples with a particularly high level of sugar caused by natural frost. In Ontario, cider or apple hooch is often home-made. Cider is commercially produced in British Columbia (large and small producers), Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Ontario, usually with a 7% alcohol content. It is sold in 341 ml glass bottles and 2 litre plastic bottles, and does not usually have added sugar.

Of note, there are well over 100 cideries across Canada and while the number is increasing unfortunately there are only a limited number Canadian cider types sold in the USA. The sample of cideries listed below are either ones that have been found for sale in at least one USA retail (often close to Canada) or ecommerce setting, or because they appear to be excellent and prolific cideries that are located so close to the Canada-USA border that an American might simply cross over and have a tasting. A US citizen can bring back from Canada one litre of alcoholic beverage duty-free, however you can also bring more litres and simply pay the duty charge at the Canada-USA border crossing. As other Canadian ciders sold in the USA are identified they will be listed.

The dry start is quite complex without the intense sharpness often associated with many traditional dry ciders. It moves quickly from dry to an almost wine-like and slightly mineral fruitiness before relaxing into a nutty floral finish.


BULWARK Blush- is a hand-crafted traditional cider, which is made with 100% freshly-pressed Nova Scotia Annapolis Valley apples and blended with wild berries. This luscious fresh concoction has a bright wild berry aroma that combines superbly with the apple flavours.  Being crafted using a traditional fruit winemaking method further contributes to its unique bouquet and zest. 

Our limited release BULWARKWinter Cider is a must during cold winter days and also makes for a special treat during the festive season. It consists of a well-balanced blend of freshly-pressed apples from the Annapolis Valley infused with cinnamon and nutmeg. Its smooth sweet taste and character has a depth of flavour that will make you wish winter would keep going a little longer.
