It is said that ci­der first ar­ri­ved in Qué­bec with ex­plo­rer Jacques Cartier, who had se­ve­ral bar­rels of it in his ship's hold. Ho­we­ver, it was not un­til 1650 that the first ci­der house was built in what is now Qué­bec. Ci­der was pro­hi­bi­ted in the pro­vince from 1921 to 1970. It took un­til 1988 for the go­vern­ment to is­sue the first ci­der craft li­cences. Since then, Qué­bec has be­come a world lea­der in the art of ci­der ma­king. Its unique pro­ducts and in­ter­na­tio­nal re­pu­ta­tion are a point of na­tio­nal pride. Qué­bec boasts over 30 high-qua­li­ty ci­der houses. The Mon­té­ré­gie region is Qué­bec’s main ci­der-pro­du­cing area thanks to its high concen­tra­tion of or­chards. Ex­plore the region’s Ci­der Route to dis­co­ver the ma­ny fa­cets of apple and ci­der pro­duc­tion. You can al­so vi­sit the Mon­dial des cidres de Mon­tréal to taste the know-how of our mas­ter ci­der-ma­kers. In ad­di­tion, quite a few wine events give vi­si­tors an op­por­tu­ni­ty to en­joy a range of Qué­bec ciders.
