SunRype launches new premium craft cider

Sun-Rype is taking a page out of its own rich history book with the launch of a new Premium Craft Apple Cider that harkens back to the 1950s, when the iconic BC brand introduced Canada's first hard cider. The package design features an adaptation of the retro SunRype logo, circa 1946, accented with a graphic representation of the Okanagan Valley, where SunRype still calls home.

It is made with only 100% BC apples, locally brewed in small batches with the signature apple taste that SunRype does best," says Marketing Manager Kat Hillis....

The first-ever BC Bacon & Cider Festival sells out

The first-ever BC Bacon & Cider Festival is a showcase for some of the Okanagan Valley’s greatest gifts:  great-tasting apples and pears, creative cider crafting, and inspired food pairings, all taking place within the walls of Kelowna’s historic apple-processing facility, The Laurel Packinghouse. The event set for Friday, April 28 has sold out. Some of BC’s very-best craft cideries pouring samples of their newest, tastiest ciders. Pair that with incredible bacon-inspired dishes prepared and served by the Okanagan College Culinary Arts students. Arguably our favorite message in a bottle! Looking forward to sipping on Faustino Dry Apple Cider at @bcbaconciderfest !...
