    We had hoped to have lunch but their kitchen wasn't up and running yet. They were nonetheless able to provide a charcuterie board that was lovely. Lots of choice and interesting cheeses, crackers, meats and a delicious chutney!! The service was wonderful and the view spectacular :-)

    Our server was friendly and extremely helpful. She happily accommodated our request to be distanced from other patrons, as we had 2 immunocompromised people on our group. The cider and gin tastings were well presented and the ambience is great.

    We didn’t have any food but that wants an option. Such a good intro to the place from….forget his name but he was amazing! Bearded fellow who had just started there like a month ago. He knew so much about the place on our tour and the products. We loved everything that we’d sampled even though we are not cider or hard liquor drinkers. A really great place for an outing to meet friends and do something different. We’ll all be back!!!

    Really busy and they were able to scrounge up some stools by the drafty door at the bar even though I made reservations for a tasting more than a month ago. No food was offered to us. Cider and spirits were good.

    What a great spot to spend an afternoon. We rented snowhoes and did the trail through the orchard . Then has a flight amdnsome tastings around the campfire. It was a great afternoon with friemds and we will be back woth more. It is a hidden gem in the winter you need to check out. Thanks to Aubrey and Freddie for the tour and amazing service. Spy is not to be missed and worth the drive.

    Spy Cider House is a great spot to visit! It has beautiful flights of ciders and spirits to sample and a lovely outdoor space including fire pits and snowshoeing. The host (Freddie) was fantastic and explained the history of the business and the intricacies of the ciders and spirits. Our favourite was the raspberry wine mixed with cider. The gin is also quite beautiful. There isn't a lot of food there, it's more of a fun spot to try local beverages. It's very close to other vineyards as well. We spent the afternoon on a self-led tour of local spots.

    We had a very nice time , the drinks are delicious the service was awesome. We only wish there was more food options and the prices were fair. We have been there a few times, but the lack of options for snacks is disappointing, they do have very tasty chips but the cost isn’t cheap. You can also request a cheese and meat board but again the price is extreme. Other than that it’s a wonderful place.

    The experience was great as we haven’t some a distillery before They were cleaning in side when we got there so it was extremely noisy. I wish it had said something about the cleaning being done that day and we would have booked for another time. The second option to sit was an old 1950’s trailer which was great, minus there was supposed to be heat inside it but it did not work. The product we had was very tasty and we purchased samples to bring home with us. Freddy was great and knowledgeable about everything and apologized for the noise and lack of heat and provided blankets to try and keep us warm. There was mention of snacks to be offered online but we were never never offered chips or snacks to go with our pairings.

    We visited many spots on our trip and this was our favourite. The location is beautiful, tucked away from the downtown in the middle of farmland, very picturesque in the fall. We stopped in on a Sunday afternoon and there was also live music. Cider is fantastic and so are the spirits. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Will be back!

    Freddie, our host, was very knowledgeable about the production of the ciders and spirits and answered all our questions intelligently. He has a good sense of humour and made good recommendations. Our visit to the Spy Cider House was a great start to our girls weekend! A great spot for visitors to the area to explore.

    Ciders, Gins and Brandies were first rate. Did not sample the Vodkas so cannot speak to those. Servers were fist rate, prompt and pleasant. In particular, Freddie, was personable and provided a very knowledgeable discussion of all the products on offer. Will definitely visit again soon.
