About Us

Nova Scotia to the core.™


One Story

At Ship Builders, we aim to make a traditional and authentic cider that cider makers of old would be proud of. We welcome and take inspiration from modern cider making techniques, and blend them with traditional methods to get our signature classic flavours. We are fortunate to be from Nova Scotia -- a place rich in cider making history -- and that we are able to use 100% Nova Scotian fruit in our cider. We believe that cider should be nothing-but-the-fruit, and our products show a commitment to that belief.


Two brands

We love making cider so much, we've created two brands for you to enjoy!

Ship Builders Cider is traditional and authentic with our cider. We take great pride in capturing the classic and complex flavours of freshly ripened apples, and creating a full and balanced cider for thirsy customers.

Sid's Cider loves to play with extra flavours and new ideas. We approach cider with exciting and fresh flavours -- for those willing to try something a little different!
