Anne and Alex Jamieson arrived on Prince Edward Island from Scotland 5 years ago looking for a change in life style. After visiting PEI on many occasions they made the leap over the pond in July 2014. They decided to turn a hobby into a business and make Cider. Cider is an alcoholic drink made from fermented apple juice, commonly known as Hard Apple Cider in Canada.
Resilience and determination ensued and after more than 3 years they will have their first batch of artisan crafted cider, Summer 2018. While waiting for the apple trees to grow they used this time wisely and honed their craft from professionals. Attending Cornell University and achieving NACM certification (National Association on of Cider Makers) was the start of their artisan craft making adventure.
Going back to the Three Counties, an area in England, UK, renowned for Cider Making, they worked with award winning artisan craft cider makers to enhance their knowledge and skills further.
As members of PEIAGA (Prince Edward Island Apple Growers Association) they have gained a vast amount of knowledge and help from experienced apple growers and are still developing their skills in apple tree farming.
