HOP|SIP|SWIRLS Out of This “Swirled” Tour offers you a drive through the most scenic rural beauty of Prince Edward Islands rolling green hillsides. Our first stop of savoury samples is at the Island Honey Wine Co., which offers you the unique flavour of Mead. With the opening of their winery in July 2017, Apiarists Charles and Laura Lipnicki have produced 3 award winning wines, and continually blend flavours pleasing to the palate.
Travelling to the community of Bonshaw, we will visit the only Craft Hard Cidery open on PEI. Riverdale Orchard is re-inventing a centuries old beverage which vanished from PEI in the wake of Prohibition. Using only the pressed fermented juices of 100% Prince Edward Island apples grown onsite, this micro-cidery crafts light easy drinking Hard Ciders, produced from their 3 apple varieties. Riverdale Orchards cider will change the way you think about this amazing fruit.
After seeing the potential for wine production on Prince Edward Island, winemakers Jaime and Heather Matos brought their passion with them to the sunny slopes of St. Catherine’s, our next stop on your tour. Wines, liqueurs and spirits will be an exploration of flavour during your memorable tasting voyage at Matos Winery & Distillery.
The next stop on our “Swirled Tour” brings us to Deep Roots Distillery, at Beamish Organic Apple Orchard in Warren Grove. You will delight in a fascinating trip into the orchard with proprietor Mike Beamish where you will learn intriguing details of distilling fruit. After you indulge in a selection of libations, you will develop a rich and deep appreciation of these rare distilled commodities.
Lastly, back into Charlottetown for award winning tastings from PEI Brewing Company. You will tour the brewery with passionate and knowledgeable folks who are itching to guide you through an incredible beer experience like none other. The selection of beers consists of signature offerings, various seasonal & experimental styles, plus special batches.
