Merridale Cidery & Distillery

BC’s oldest estate cidery and first craft distillery, located in Cobble Hill.


Experience apples like never before! Come explore BC’s oldest estate cidery and first craft distillery. Do you know what’s in your cider and spirits? We do. Here at Merridale, we sustainably craft exceptional cider and spirits on our Cowichan farm with integrity and curiosity. Come sip orchard-to-glass ciders, learn about the process of our award-winning spirits, savour farm-to-table cuisine, shop from local artisans in our farmhouse, or simply amble through our orchard walk.

Discover what truly craft and local means. Visit our orchard and farmhouse. Find us at your local liquor store. Let us create delicious memories for you. Open 7 days a week, with seasonal yurt stays and events including live music, Christmas lights, and more.


The property and buildings, including the restaurant, are wheelchair friendly and barrier-free, for the most part. My scooter could access the indoor section of the cafe, and the many tables in the covered porch area, but not the lower outdoor seating. The bathroom is accessible for me and my compact scooter, but some may find it a little snug. There is a baby change table in the accessible restroom as well. Much of Merridale’s grounds are paved and level, and designated accessible parking is located on the right hand side shortly after you drive through the entrance. (Be sure to go past the first driveway, which is a residence).
