Description

Bowen Cider House is a testament to the dedication and passion of a family-run cidery. Located on a vibrant working farm, the cidery specializes in transforming heritage apples into an array of traditional and innovative ciders. Each cider is a narrative of meticulous care and a deep love for the craft.

Unique Cider Selections

The cidery offers a diverse range of ciders, each with its unique profile:

  • Seymour Bay Scrumpy: A traditional Scrumpy made from a blend of BC cider fruit and Granny Smith apples. It’s unfiltered, unsweetened, and boasts no residual sugar.
  • Granny Cowan: A dry cider featuring a crisp blend of 80% Granny Smith and 20% dessert and cider apples.
  • Meadowbrook Medley: This semi-dry cider is a harmonious blend from the cidery's heritage orchards, representing the terroir of Bowen Island.
  • Lady Alexandra: A semi-sweet cider made from 100% Pink Lady apples, named after a historic steamship.
  • Undercurrant: A unique semi-dry cider infused with black currants for a tart and vibrant taste.

Sustainable Farming Practices

Bowen Cider House is not just a cidery but a working farm named Meadowbrook Corner. Since 2004, the farm has grown to include over 700 trees of various apple varieties, all grafted in-house. The farm is also home to sheep, pigs, and ducks, with an edible garden that contributes to the menu of the adjoining Meadowbrook Market.

Expert On-Site Cider Production

The entire cidermaking process, from fermentation to bottling, occurs on-site. The cidermakers, Isaac, Ben, and Alastair, along with a team of family and friends, oversee every step, ensuring each batch of cider is a true reflection of their expertise and the island’s essence.

Bowen Cider House offers a unique cider-tasting experience deeply rooted in family tradition, sustainable farming, and artisanal craftsmanship. Visitors can expect to immerse themselves in the art of cidermaking while enjoying the serene surroundings of a working farm on Bowen Island.
