High and Dry is a dry blend of cider and dessert apples. Modern Miracle is a lightly sweetened cider. Making a Mint is a cider with flavours of mint, lemon and hibiscus. Hob on Board is a hop-flavoured cider.

The cidery, at 14113 Dale Meadows Rd., is in the heart of what was once Summerland’s Millionaires’ Row and is across the street from an orchard once owned by Sir Herbert Holt, Canada’s richest citizen at the time.

Holt was a director of more than 300 companies and was also the national president of the Royal Bank of Canada.

When Sir Thomas Shaughnessy founded Summerland in the early 1900s, he convinced several of his wealthy business partners to invest in the community.
