This August I've had the pleasure of welcoming Naramata Cider Co. as a new client, and we are excited to launch their craft ciders together on Vancouver Island and in the Gulf Islands.
"Founded by Miranda + Del Halladay of Elephant Island Winery to celebrate the wealth of fruit and the hard working, farming proud spirit that their home community of Naramata, BC is built on. Naramata Cider Co. believes wholeheartedly that the apples and pears we grow in the Okanagan build beautiful ciders – we work with fruit that grows well in our soil and is grown better by our contributing local farmers. Our ciders are made of this place and celebrate this place." -- Naramata Cider Co.
Cider fans, you can find 750ml bottles Dry Apple exclusively at Liquor Plus locations in Victoria, Cobble Hill, Duncan and Courtenay, alongside Cider Makers Select Blackberry Apple, and Dry Pear. Dry Pear and Cider Makers Select are now shipping to craft focused private retailers around the island. Ask for them by name in your favourite shop, or send me a request and I'll let you know where to find them in your 'hood. In Spring 2017, watch for Dry Apple's return, in four pack 355ml stubby bottles.
For restaurants interested in kegs or bottles, and retailers looking for Dry Pear and Cider Makers Select, shop my lemonade stand for more information, or get in touch. You guys will love these ciders.
