The 1920’s was the Golden Age of the apple in the Shuswap. The climate was ideal for orchardists, with a balance of sunshine and enough moisture so that no irrigation was required. These unique conditions created some of the most delicious apples in the world and they were in high demand. Paddle wheelers stopped along the lakeshore to gather boxes by the ton and some eventually found their way to markets in Great Britain, South Africa and South America.
In 2020, the Shuswap Cider Company launched a new Golden Age of the apple in the form of cider. We ferment using a blend of traditional bittersweet and bitter sharp varietals, along with complementary culinary apples, to create a brilliant balance of characteristics in each small batch. We hope you enjoy the attention to detail in our craft ciders. Savour the moments sharing them with the family and friends in your world!
