BC Tree Fruits ciders win big at Canadian wine championships

Tree Fruits cider best of best

It should come as no surprise, but some of Canada’s best fruit has produced some of Canada’s best cider.

Kelowna-based BC Tree Fruits Cider Co. was a big winner at the recent All Canadian Wine Championships, as its Broken Ladder Apples beverage captured double gold in the modern cider category.

Meanwhile, its Broken Ladder Rosé was awarded bronze in the fruit cider division.

“We are elated to once again be a recipient of an All Canadian Wine Championships awards, and even more delighted to earn double gold in the modern cider category and bronze for the rosé, our true blend of B.C. apples and cherries,” cidermaker Nadine Harrison said in a press release.

“Craft cider continues to be one of the fastest growing categories in the beverage sector. BC Tree Fruit Cider Co. is an authentic, homegrown producer with our handpicked fruits being crushed in our mill, the juice then fermented and packaged all on site in the cidery with no added water or processed sugar.”

There are eight cider categories in the All Canadian Wine Championships.

BC Tree Fruits launched its cider division in 2015.
