WE’RE GROWING IT DIFFERENTLY
Black Creek : Name of the creek that crosses the rich and fertile lands, the source of inspiration for a responsible, different and amazing orchard management!
On our property in Montérégie, you will find some apple trees rare in Quebec as well as sugar maples and many berries. The makers have taken this profusion of riches in order to produce on site, a range of alcoholic and effervescent beverages with exceptional flavour.
TASTE THE DIFFERENCE
Unique English-style ciders, as well as Büldog a brand new type of slightly effervescent aperitif made from maple syrup and subtly sweet wild fruit. All these drinks are crafted in an eco-responsible way using traditional methods with natural ingredients, yeast and effervescence.
At Black Creek Farm, our vision is to implement high environmental standards in a 100% natural environment. We feel these standards help shape our unique and refreshing products.
CIDERS | BLACK CREEK BRAND
This bottle conditioned cider made according to traditional methods ferments first in the vat and then in the bottle on its lees. The result is a smooth cider, without added sugar, as well as having a slight natural effervescence. The uniqueness of this unfiltered cider makes it one of our most sought-after products.
With hints of quince, pear, yellow peach as well as hints of fresh pastries, each mouthful of cider is an authentic experience. Its golden yellow colour seduces the eye and its natural effervescence awakens the taste buds. The culmination of quality ingredients, delicate bubbles and the presence of tannins makes this cider a true indulgence.Read more
Our orchards grow a variety of apples rare in Quebec. The blends we choose allow us to make a fresh cider according to the traditional method, with a hint of bitterness in its finish. The natural effervescence is obtained using a second fermentation in the bottle which results in a unique product.
The cider is clear and pale gold in colour with a particular nose and is perfectly balanced. How can one not be seduced? The crisp flavour of this cider reveals notes of fresh apples, honey, and dried flowers with a touch of dried herbs and is followed by an elegant effervescence.Read more
Winner of the silver medal in 2019 at the Great Lakes International Cider and Perry Competition, this cider is produced from a blend of English cider apples. A hint of maple syrup is then added during a second fermentation which results in a long-lasting finish in the mouth.
Displaying a yellowish colour with gold specks, this cider offers aromas of hot apple pie with hints of mocha and burnt caramel. Full bodied in nature, this cider balances the subtleties of the fruit and the maple syrup, delivering character and a memorable long-lasting finish.Read more
This farmhouse cider fermented on its lees is a beverage with no equal. The maceration of cider apples with red fleshed apples allows the softening of the tannins as well as giving it its magnificent orange colour. The traditional method of keeving process is used to naturally purify/clarify the cider of the suspended particles which it contains. The remaining liquid is slowly fermented at low temperatures with indigenous yeasts for a duration of 3 to 4 months. The residual sugars are bottled with the cider and finish fermenting in the bottle. The result being an authentic dry cider lightly effervescent, with zero yeasts or sulphites added. A small deposit can form in the bottom of the bottle.Read more
MAPLE | BÜLDOG BRAND
We thought everything had already been done using maple syrup but then Denis Rousseau had the idea to make a drink …with alcohol!
It’s as cool as a summer breeze, light as a spring day, soft as an autumn evening and perfect for passing the winter blues. We are sure it’s different from anything you’ve ever tasted and contrary to what you might think a maple beverage might taste like, it’s not sweet.Read more
There comes a time in your life when you feel as if you’ve made the rounds of all the drinks: beer, wine, mead, spritzer, cocktails. But then you taste this lightly effervescent drink with haskap, and you feel as though you’re rediscovering your own taste buds, it’s that good!
DID YOU know that haskap, a small fruit that grows here, has a high content of antioxidants, vitamins A and C and fiber in addition to being a source of manganese, potassium, magnesium and copper? It’s not just tasty, it’s good for your health as well! What else could you want? Pale pink in colour, it has a delicate bouquet of red and black berries with a floral (rose) hint. The maple sugar also magnifies its fruity flavours. It has a sweet natural effervescence while keeping a balance (between the sweet and sour) with a slight bitterness in the finish. The very low presence of residual sugars gives it this sublime subtle aftertaste of cotton candy.Read more
