We help apples reach their full potential as craft cider.
We rescue local fruit and create experimental cider rooted in community and inspired by the distinct flavours and culture of the prairies.
We invest our time, energy, and profits back into our community.
As hobbyist cidermakers, we wanted a space to share our journey, and thus “yegcider” was born. We used our online presence to engage with fellow cider lovers both in Edmonton and around the world, with the goal of raising the profile of craft cider in Alberta. We shared our stories of developing our craft through lots of experimentation, formal training, and knowledge gathering from members of the industry.
We experimented with local fruit to discover the strengths and weakness of fruit that can grow on the prairies. In the spring of 2018, we planted an orchard with cold hardy trees and began grafting our favourite locally available varieties into our collection.
