Heritage apple varietals are the key to Pommies’ delicious, refreshing ciders. It takes anywhere from six weeks to two months to craft a batch of Pommies Cider, which is fermented with white wine yeast to help showcase the apple’s flavours and aromas. Their flagship Dry Cider, available from the LCBO, is light, crisp and highly sippable while the Farmhouse Cider has a more rustic, funky taste to it. For an alternative to the traditional apple cider, try the Pommies Perry – it’s made from Ontario Bartlett and Bosc pears that give the cider subtle floral and spicy undertones. Pommies Perry took home silver in the ‘Other Fruit’ judged category at this year's Ontario Cider Awards and you can sample this prize-winning cider at Hair of the Dog and Wildly Delicious during the autumn and winter.
