Nashi Orchards

This was one of the main reasons I wanted to check out Vashon Island. We’d bought a perry cider (from The Beer Junction) so checking out the Nashi Orchards was a no brainer. They were in the process of opening up a second location (a new tasting studio).

We dropped in on a Saturday afternoon (around 12:15pm). The tasting room is outside with a couple bear-dogs roaming around.

Speaking of bear-dogs, look how adorable this one was (there was a black one too).

Cider tastings are $10.00 US/person. Tasting fee is NOT waived if you buy bottles, which is a first.

Bottles range in between $25.00 US to $31.50 US.

You can also purchase a 4-pack for $27.50 US. We shared a tasting.

Chojuro blend perry
DSC03839This is the perry we tried previously and turns out, it’s still our favourite of their offerings. Smooth, slightly sweet and refreshing.

Hosui Asian pear perry
DSC03841This one had a dry finish. We didn’t love it.

Issho-ni
DSC03844This one is a mix of 30 different apples from the island that was donated to them. More of a traditional, dry cider.

“White hart”
DSC03845This one was on draft and barrel aged in gin. B could smell peppercorns; you can taste the juniper notes.

Royal
DSC03849This one was smooth and similar to a brandy but much more drinkable/approachable. Would be good on ice.

Really wanted to love Nashi Orchards but it’s not a must visit for us.
