Lake City Cider

Say hello to Lake City Cider! Located in Dartmouth, NS, Lake City Cider is a living love letter to the city itself. Lake City Ciders name comes from the city it is from, Dartmouth, NS! Known as the City of Lakes, Dartmouth boasts 23 lakes that add to its beauty and are perfect for paddling and swimming.

With an honest, transparent approach to making awesome ciders, Lake City Cider supports local suppliers that make their bold flavours possible—like crisp apples from Sterling Fruit Farms and wild blueberries from Oxford, NS.

As a proud member of their community, Lake City Cider and it’s dedicated employees are always looking for ways to lift up others! They volunteer and support many charitable causes including Halifax Pride, Dartmouth North Community Food Centre and on select Fridays, they collect a portion of their cider sales and donate the proceeds to help the community.

About the Owner: 

4 years ago, Lake City Ciders founder, Poet left her job to chase a dream. Growing up in a family with an entrepreneurial spirit she always wanted to open her own business. As a certified sommelier, she wanted to create ciders that bridge the gap between wine and cider drinkers. This led to the creation of Lake City Cider! 

Nova Scotia agricultural connections run in Poet’s family! Her great Grandfather was the first president of the fruit growers association of Nova Scotia and was very good friends with the Sterlings, the same family that they buy apples from today.  

Fun fact: at the age of 16, Poet was national champion in 3 races in sprint kayak! Paddling is still an important to her and Lake City Cider is a sponsor for Canoe '22, the international world championships taking place this summer on Lake Banook. 

Nestled on Portland Street in the center of Dartmouth you’ll find the Lake City Cider Taproom. Stop in to try one of their many great products and enjoy the weather on their patio!
