Valley Journal Advertiser - - NEWS - BY COLIN CHISHOLM WWW.HANTSJOURNAL.CA

The Me­an­der River Farm & Brew­ery re­ceived sil­ver in the Spe­cialty Cider & Perry cat­e­gory for their Small Lot Rose Petal Cider at the At­lantic Cana­dian Beer Awards on Oct. 28.

The cider is made from 100 per cent Nova Sco­tia ap­ples and fresh rose petals grown on the farm.

The awards, held at the Stub­born Goat Gas­tropub, fea­tured a to­tal of 376 beer and cider en­tries rep­re­sent­ing brew­eries from across At­lantic Canada in 15 cat­e­gories.

Me­an­der River was pre­sented with an award along­side four other Mar­itime cider houses in­clud­ing Chain-Yard (Hal­i­fax), Casa Nova Fine Bev­er­ages (Bear River), Yip Cider (New Brunswick), and Riverdale Or­chard & Cidery (PEI).

The la­bels on the rose petal cider are all hand­writ­ten and printed with an orig­i­nal carved stamp de­sign.

Camp­bell Bai­ley, me­dia re­la­tions co-or­di­na­tor with Me­an­der River, said this spe­cific cider is sold out un­til next year, re­turn­ing when the roses are in bloom again.

Other small lot batches cur­rently avail­able in­clude a blue­berry cider, and ‘La­van­dula,’ an es­tate honey and laven­der cider.
