Staff is friendly, amiable and very knowledgeable on their ciders. Make sure you check out the orchard/surroundings because the view is gorgeous.

They’ve even started selling fancy candles!

Pear charmat
DSC04557This is their champagne style cider. Smaller bubbles and the driest of their offerings. Perfect to celebrate a special occasion.

Sparkling pear
DSC04560Their version of a prosecco cider. Larger bubbles meant this one tasted smoother and less dry.

Sparkling apple + pear
DSC04562Fruitier and a slightly creamier texture.

Sparkling rosé
DSC04564This is our favourite of the bunch. Made up of 90% apples and 10% blackberries.

White/red/black currant apple + honey ($12.90 each)
DSC04669We bought all three bottles so that we could try each of their new currant ciders.

Unique ciders at LPA that you’ll be hard pressed to find elsewhere.
