Merridale is a delicious destination in Cowichan —an apple orchard, craft cider house, small batch distillery, and wedding/event venue. Join us for a tasting of delicious orchard-to-glass ciders and craft spirits; savour farm-to-table cuisine in our eatery; take home fresh-baked cider leaven breads or house-made preserves; discover our traditional cider and spirits methods on our tours; stroll the orchard while your kids search for the mystical faeries rumoured to live here; shop in our farm store for unique artisan wares; overnight in a yurt or book a wedding/event. Visit our website for special events, like Christmas at the Farm, Sunday Pizza Nights with live music, and our Cider Harvest and Craft Spirit Festivals!

Here at Merridale, we use cider apple varieties that have been proven for centuries in England, France, and Germany to make the best cider. All of our ciders are made from 100% pure juice, and only the first pressing is used. We do not add water or re-press the apples to increase the yield because we believe this compromises the flavour. Being purists, we do not use concentrates, chemicals at bottling, pasteurization, or fine filtration of juice. We ferment our juice slowly and naturally, to delicately bring out the natural flavour of the fruit.
