Annapolis Valley in Nova Scotia. is considered one of the world's best places to grow apples. It also provides some of the best ciders.
Settlers first started growing apple varieties in this Valley in the early 1600s and our Cider’s unique character and flavours are meant as a tribute to those 400 years of apple growing tradition in the Valley.
Bulwark cider has a signature flavor that is achieved through a careful blending of 5 apple varieties. It is great on its own or on ice, and is an excellent accompaniment to many fine dishes.
