Summerland Heritage Cider

Our first stop of the day was at Summerland Heritage Cidery. We’ve never tried their ciders before but we were in the area to check out two other cideries so figured we would check them out at the same time.

We dropped in on a Saturday afternoon (around 2:00pm). The inside is quaint but the outdoor patio is cute and relaxing.

Even a picnic table further out in the back.

They also have some merchandise for sale (clothing, snapbacks and growlers).

Tastings are $2.00/person but waived if you buy a bottle. We were able to try all 7 of their flavours.

They offer discounts if you buy multiple bottles (10% off half case, 20% off full case). Ciders are priced in the $7.17 to $12.13 range (taxes not included) and they offered growler refills ($9.78/L).

The Flume – this is their driest cider which they call “bone dry”. We aren’t huge fans of the dry varieties but this wasn’t bad.

Porter’s dry – another dry but this was a bit more earthy in flavour.

Woodland hopper
DSC03422This was my favourite of the bunch we tried. Well balanced, slightly floral and different.

We bought a bottle ($7.78).

Margarita gose
DSC03417This is their newest flavour and part of their discovery series. An off dry aged on lemon verbena, lemon zest and salt. Perfect for summer.

B really liked it so we also bought a bottle ($7.78).

Farm pressed pear – they use four types of pear. Light with a good mouth feel but the pear flavour was a tad too subtle.

Tuesday’s original – this is their first cider that they made. Decent for an off-dry but we didn’t find it memorable.

Sweet paradise – this was the sweetest of their lineup, hence the name. Enjoyable.

Another solid cidery in Summerland. If you’re a cider fan, SHC is definitely worth a try.
