Merridale is a delicious destination in Cowichan —an apple orchard, craft cider house, small batch distillery, and wedding/event venue. Join us for a cider and spirits tasting; savour farm to table cuisine in our restaurant; fresh baked goods made from cider leaven in our bakery; 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 farmhouse store for unique artisan wares; relax in our lounge with cocktails, cider and spirit flights, and appetizers for pairing; overnight in a yurt or book a wedding/event. Visit our website for special events, like Sunday pizza nights with live music, and our seasonal dinner series!

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 all of the flavour the fruit has to offer.

All of the art at Merridale, functional and fine, is lovingly produced by Vancouver Island based artists. We have painted textiles, bowls, glassware, willow baskets, cider-scented soaps, fanciful faerie goods, and the perfect paintings for your walls. All of our art is created by people that live close by and our wall and shelves are constantly changing with new products and arts. Our on-going, ever changing art can be purchased and shipped anywhere.
