Thornbury Cidery Opens All-New Tasting Room in Grey County

You may have heard of Thornbury Cider is the flagship product of Thornbury Village Cider House & Brewery? They’ve been making their cider in the midst of 7,500 acres of apple orchards, in the heart of apple country but until this week, you couldn’t taste their cider on-site.

A typical spring scene in Grey County includes acres of blooming apple orchards. Their apples are destined for cider houses across Ontario.

Well, the wait is finally over, Thornbury Village Cider House is now open to the public!

This means you can now taste their ciders (both flagship and experimental brews) at the cidery, but also learn about how it’s made. Cider lovers will also be excited to hear that all their ciders are available for sale in growlers.

It has been almost a year of remodelling and renovations in the historic apple cider house to achieve they new look. To celebrate, the team behind Thornbury Cider is holding an opening party, with an “official” ribbon cutting and all, at 11:00 am on May 16th. They’ll also be hosting some of their first Guided Tours and tastings on that day.

This is a big deal for the community in Thornbury. The area has long been considered a hub for apple production, but with Thornbury joining Druxbury Cider, Georgian Hills and Coffin Ridge in offering tasting experiences, it will quickly becoming the cider capital of Ontario.

Stop by the new Thornbury cidery when you explore the Saints & Sinner Trail! Use the Saints & Sinners: Bootleggers� Run map to find your way around Grey County to tour farms and facilities, enjoy tastings, pairings or full meals, and pick up a huge variety of beverages to bring home.
