The BX Press Cidery & Orchard

After lunch, we made a quick pit stop to check out The BX Press Cidery & Orchard. They’re about a 10 minute drive from downtown Vernon.

We dropped in on a Saturday afternoon (around 2:00pm) and were able to join a short 15 minute guided tour (occurs every 30 minutes). You can do that or do a tasting at the bar; both options are pay by donation and gets you three generous pours.

Of course, there’s a few awards adorning their walls.

We were also informed of a couple upcoming flavours: apricot ginger and vanilla plum (for Christmas) sounded great!

You can find their ciders around Vernon and some cities in B.C.

While we were leaving, we spotted crates of crab apples that were to be crushed the following day.

A worker told us to give it a try; super tart and dry but tasty.

Cranberry cinnamon ($9.00)
DSC07142This was our favourite of the three ciders we sampled. Good tartness with a note of cinnamon at the end.

Honestly, you can’t go wrong with this flavour combo. Super good!

Golden russet ($9.00)
DSC07149Even though we didn’t sample it, we decided to give their golden russet a try.

We didn’t think there was too much flavour to it.

Fun spot to learn about the cider process and sample a few flavours.
