WHAT IS THE CARLISLE CIDER COMPANY?

The Carlisle Cider Co. is exactly what it sounds like...

We make cider and we make it in Carlisle, Ontario.

Our town is simple, it's quaint, and it's community; and that's precisely what we wanted to create with our brand of hard cider. The Carlisle Cider Co. pays homage to the farming roots of its namesake, dating back to the late 1800's. We're determined to offer creative varieties, while keeping our line of products narrow enough to never spread our love too thin.

 

We have created two distinctive collections. Our main line of ciders features a narrow selection of dry to medium sweet hard ciders and focuses on the heritage landscape of our town. Our Founder's Collection features an annual seasonal variety that showcases one of the founding families of Carlisle, blending to their tastes, personalities, and historical significance to the town's beginnings.

Coming in the Spring of 2020, The Carlisle Cider Co. will open its doors to the public and begin spreading the small town love, showing the world what comes of a whole lot of heart!
