Gear up for spring with warm weather beverages from Windfall Cider, BC's newest urban cidery

 

With spring coming right around the corner, it's time to get excited about crisp and refreshing warm weather beverages. Let's face it— while there are tons of great options out there, nothing hits the spot quite like a cold cider on a sunny day. This spring, discover one-of-a-kind beverages from BC cidery, Windfall. With a diverse roster of distinct ciders, such as the Hail Mary with notes of rose petal and green melon, or the Wild Card with citrus and a delicate nuttiness, Windfall has something for everyone.

 

 

Windfall is here to turn the world of cider on its head— not only in BC, but Canada-wide. This starts by working closely with community farmers to find the very best apples that the province has to offer. Using fruits and botanicals native to the Pacific Northwest, Windfall experiments with old-world techniques, yeast strains, wild ferments, and barrel aging. The result is a distinct lineup of bold and delicious ciders that appeal to cider and beer lovers alike.

 

This spring, Windfall is excited to announce their latest endeavour: The Windfall Tasting Room. Located at 101-250 Esplanade in the heart of North Vancouver's brewery district, Windfall's Tasting Room is surrounded by 7 breweries, one distillery, and a winery. They are also conveniently located near three parks where the city allows public drinking! Windfall is excited to host you in person this spring season, stay tuned for more details!

 

Windfall's new Tasting Room was designed by the incredible 123W Idea & Design Collective.

 

As Windfall continues to grow, it comes as no surprise that their ciders are gaining international attention. Windfall Cider has won numerous awards from the New York International Cider Competition, the Cidercraft Awards, and the Great Lakes International Cider and Perry Competition.

 

Windfall's bright and playful ciders can be shopped online and shipped across BC, and delivered to your doorstep if you're based in Vancouver. Here is a list of select restaurants and private liquor stores that carry the line.

About: Windfall Cider is Canada's urban cidery based in Vancouver, BC. Windfall believes in making your own luck, and they are here to turn the world of cider on its head. They find the best BC apples, the purest juice, and experiment with old-world techniques to create a one-of-a-kind cider like you’ve probably never tasted before. Like a little sip of good fortune in every can.

 

Windfall works closely with community farmers to find the very best produce that their province has to offer, all the while ensuring that local suppliers are properly compensated. They experiment with as many traditional methods and interesting flavours as possible, playing with yeast strains, wild ferments and barrel aging. Windfall stays true to their local roots, using only fruits and botanicals native to the Pacific Northwest. The result is a diverse roster of crisp, distinct, and playful ciders that you'll want to drink year-round.

 

Windfall's founders, Jeff and Nathaly Nairn, fell in love with Spanish cider on a trip to Mexico City. After exploring with cider-making as a hobby for several years, they took the plunge and established their very own cidery, Windfall Cider. In an industry overrun with very sweet and generic ciders, they set out to create crisp, refreshing and unique blends. After learning what they could from old-world methods passed down by generations of cider makers, Jeff and Nathaly experimented until their cider was just right— and entirely different than anything else in Canada.

Windfall's bright and playful ciders can be shopped online and shipped to BC residents, or delivered across Vancouver, or purchased at select restaurants and private liquor stores.

 

Visibility: Windfall has been featured in various North American print and online publications, such as Globe and Mail, Quench, Daily Hive, Chatelaine, The Growler BC, Scout Magazine, and Trend Hunter.
