A new trend has emerged in full force on Prince Edward Island with Craft Cideries developing alcoholic cider beverages for your enjoyment. Craft Cider is a great alternative to craft beer, while still offering a variety of dry and sweet styles and a multitude of flavours.
Riverdale Orchard in Bonshaw began their adventure 5 years ago with the purchase of their orchard. Retired couple Alex & Anne were looking to fill their time, so they began producing hard craft cider after their successful 2017 growing season. We will stop by and meet Alex and Anne and learn about the process of how they develop their cider starting from the hand-picked apples, to the fermentation process of the apple juice to the last stages before bottling.
We’ll take the picturesque scenic drive down the coast back into Charlottetown to the brand new cidery, Red Island Cider. A quick overview of the development of their unique process then taste a full sample flight of their ciders.
