Our ciders

All of our ciders are created using high-quality, hand-picked fruit cultivated on our very own Blue Bee Orchard. We looked to France and their long history of cider production for inspiration, and so our products showcase the best of both old and new world cider-making techniques.

Each cider reflects the unique flavours and personality of the Okanagan valley, or, as the French say, the “goût du terroir.” Gluten-free and never too sweet, our ciders let the natural fruit flavours and aromatics shine through, while having the perfect amount of bubble to enhance each sip.

Sparkling Strawberry, Apple & Pear

Fresh Okanagan-grown strawberries are blended with our juicy Bartlett pears and Granny Smith apples, resulting in flavours that are deliciously fresh and fruity. Strawberry dominates the top of the palate, followed by tones of wild berries, pear and green apple. Light, off-dry and refreshing, with medium body and length. Vegan, gluten-free.
8%alc/vol – 750ml

Enjoy a light and delicate mouthfeel, an ultra-fine bubble and hints of natural pear that linger through the finish in this truly distinctive beverage.

About La Petite Abeille

We named our cidery La Petite Abeille, or, the Little Bee. Bees are important to us for a couple of reasons. Not only do we recognize that bees are crucial to the pollination of our orchard and the health of the planet, but the bee has been a prominent symbol throughout French history, so we thought of the bee as a fitting ode to the place that initially inspired us to make our special sparkling-style cider.

With a wink and a nod to French cider-making savoir-faire, we have found our passion in creating bubbly, chic ciders right here on the Naramata Bench, and are so pleased to have our ciders find a place at your table.
