On the gentle slope of a Cape Breton family orchard stand three trees. Their large, round, blackish-red fruit contrasts starkly from the surrounding apples on the property. These are Burgundy apples, with skin so dark that the red actually bleeds into the flesh. This is a true “backyard cider”, produced with Burgundy apples harvested from Saltbox Founder Patrick Jardine’s family farm. The resulting cider pours a bright pink, with a crisp, dry taste and a tangy balance.
Much like winemaking, small batch cider relies on the local “terroir” to give it personality and flavour. Take a sip of our Three Trees cider and discover its unique sense of place. This is a limited edition cider, available once a year only through Saltbox Cider Company.
