Welcome to West Avenue. Where country tradition meets big city lights. Our cider was awarded 2014 Best Cider in Ontario and we hope you’ll have the chance to taste it. As small-batch producers of hard cider, we source vintage-quality fruit from local farmers. We care about the quality of the fruit that goes into our cider- and we always will. We only use the best ingredients, coupled with a slow fermentation process, so every batch of our cider is characteristic of the orchard’s terroir.
West Avenue was founded by British-born cider maker Chris Haworth. Haworth’s cultural roots have inspired West Avenue’s year-round staple “Heritage Dry’. And as a former chef in top U.K. restaurants his culinary roots have inspired his limited release barrel-aged and cask-conditioned ciders. When he’s not harvesting fruit in countryside orchards, Haworth can be found in the city, collaborating with the finest restaurants and breweries to produce one-off, experimental ciders. Haworth runs West Avenue alongside his wife Amy Robson. They live in Carlisle, Ontario with their two children.
