The Salt Spring Cider Company is the home of Andy's Original Craft Collection ®. Salt Spring Cider ® is our trademarked flagship cider.
The Andy's Original Craft Collection ® brand was born in July of 2000 at the Meaford Towne Winery and Tasters Wine Pub in Meaford, Ontario. At that time our ciders and fruit wines were available by the glass at Tasters Wine Pub.
This was the first commercial hard cider and fruit wine produced and sold in Meaford, Ontario. It was truly a project before its time.
In the late nineties there was a sharp decline in local apple sales. In 2002 Andy diligently tried to find a farm partner to expand his operation and distribution, but was unable to convince local growers that a cider and wine business could generate the revenues they were losing to imported apples.
Unfortunately, without a partner, the Meaford Towne Winery and Tasters Wine pub closed to the public. Andy however continued to develop his recipes and processes with a focus on craft cider.
Although we are not actively looking for production partners, we are always open to the idea.
Today Andy writes and publishes craft cider, fruit wine, mead and spirits reviews. His reviews are honest, opinionated, written in plain non technical language and have an educational twist.
The Salt Spring Cider Company is a division of Salt Spring Studios Ltd.
