Our ciders CONTAIN ZERO RESIDUAL sugar and no carbs, THE BYPRODUCT OF our natural cider-making process. We start with 100% fresh pressed juice, chock full of naturally occurring yeasts and bacteria that ferment our base cider. To that, we add fresh fruits and herbs for flavour, and then everything is conditioned in the bottle (or keg). Our naturally occurring microbial friends eat up all of the sugar and carbohydrates, leaving you with a tasty BONE DRY cider THAT CONTAINS JUST 80 calories per 8oz serving. All of our nutritional data is routinely tested and confirmed via industry leading laboratories.

In order to preserve the integrity of our natural cider-making ethos, we do not add sulfites or preservatives of any kind. All of our ciders are naturally gluten free and vegan-friendly.

101 Cider House Scrumpy

A farmhouse style cider that celebrates traditional cider making practices. We start with fresh apples grown along Highway 101, which are then cold pressed into a delicious raw juice. The juice undergoes several months of spontaneous fermentation, and is left bone dry. Full of barnyard character and oozing with minerality, this cider is perfect for the sour beer lover or the sparkling wine connoisseur.
