The West Kootenays of B.C. is the perfect climate for growing apples.
Hot summer days, cool evenings and mild winters with plenty of glacial fed water. The Arrow Lakes is also a great vacation spot and that is how our story began.
We bought an old farmstead, started some gardens, planted apple trees and each fall tested a new batch of cider. What began as a treat for family and friends has turned into a year round way of life.
In 2016 Burton City Cider was created and we are now crafting crisp, dry ciders for your enjoyment.
Burton City Ciders are dry ciders. Made from pure juice, no sugar, sulfites or water added and Cider is Naturally Gluten Free!
Blending the apples is the secret to a great cider and at Burton City Cider we are always working to find that perfect blend. We have found a few! Just as wine changes with the grapes each year – apples and cider do too. The fun is finding flavour combos that makes cider a drink for any occasion.
