No Boats On Sunday
No Boats on Sunday started with a purchase of 10,000 Annapolis Valley apples in 2016 which were transformed into the original cider. Now we purchase 1.3 million pounds of locally grown apples to satisfy the demand for our cider in Atlantic Canada.
"The key to understanding No Boats on Sunday is that it is at every step of the process a commitment to satisfying our loyal local consumers. We strive to make great tasting products, using only Nova Scotia grown ingredients, and make them in a style that will be appealing to a wide range of palates."
