Come into our cider shop and enjoy a tasting! Both our cider and spirit tastings are $5 each, including tax. Proceeds from our tastings go towards our charity of the month. Along with tasting proceeds, we often hold events or do further work with these charities to make a difference in our community!
Our cider shop is located in the Cider House next to the bistro, nestled in the heart of the orchard. It is stocked with cider, spirits, gourmet foods, functional art, and paintings for your walls − a mecca of culinary and visual arts. To engage all of your senses, we offer an abundance of tastes for you to sample upon arrival.
Begin with a tasting at our ciderbar and sample from the vast array of dry to sweet ciders we create. For a nominal fee, tantalize your taste buds with some of the spirits made in our own distillery, or try our premium fortified ciders crafted by our cider maker on site. To cleanse your palate after your tasting and to assist in your culinary selections, we sample tasty morsels at our deli and bakery counter located right next door.
The deli is stocked with dressings, relishes, soups and sauces which are made in our own kitchen. Across the room you will find woven baskets and trays overflowing with breads, croissants, apple pies, brioches and other goodies baked fresh in our own wood fire brick oven bakery. From nearby farms we have sourced items such as cheese and sausage and we are very proud of our newly stocked pantry shelves, which carry everything from spices to chocolate. Our gourmet food items come from a collection of artisanal food producers from around the Cowichan Valley, Vancouver Island, the Lower Mainland and the Okanagan. We have chosen products made by people with passion for what they do, just as we have passion for what we create!
Looking for local art for your walls or functional art for your dining or kitchen table? We have painted textiles, bowls, glassware, willow baskets, cider-scented soaps, faerie goods and the perfect paintings for your walls, all created by people who live close by. Our walls and shelves are constantly changing with new products and creations.
So enjoy a culinary tour of gourmet food items and art in our farmhouse store while our knowledgeable staff assists with your selections. They are on-hand to suggest the perfect pairings: be it cider, spirits, gourmet food, baked goods or art! We have you covered when it comes to your kitchen or dining table!
