From the lakeside orchards on Niagara to the micro-climate grown groves of Collingwood and all the way to Prince Edward County, Ontario cider production is on the rise.
As the leading organization representing craft cider producers in Ontario, we aim to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and to further the discussion on matters relating to cider in Ontario. Our mission is to ensure that Ontario is recognized as a centre for cider excellence and innovation!

Pear cider is often called perry and is traditionally fermented with wild yeasts found on the fruit’s skin
Ciders can be classified from dry to sweet. Their appearance ranges from cloudy with sediment to completely clear, and their colour ranges from light yellow through orange to brown.
In Ontario, cider usually has a 5-7% alcohol content.
Because it is made of fruit, not grain, cider is gluten-free.
