Cinco de Mayo at Merridale

to May 7

Cinco de Mayo at Merridale

  • Merridale Cidery, Distillery & Bistro (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

At Merridale we're celebrating Cinco de Mayo with a special Mexican themed 3-course dinner for the entire weekend! Using the rich flavours of Mexican cuisine we’re creating a tantalizing menu in honour of the Mexican holiday.

Releasing in time for Cinco de Mayo is one of Merridale’s specialty summer ciders, Jalisco Cidre. Senor Apple lost the Mexican standoff resulting in this refreshing real lime cidre. This seasonal pays homage to our familia in Jalisco, Mexico where “limons” grow everywhere. Back sweetened with agave syrup to give even more of that south of the border flavour, finishing slightly off-dry to be enjoyed throughout the summer.

Join us at Merridale for this delicious weekend of Mexican flavour and the special release of our Jalisco Cidre! To make your dinner reservation, visit our website or call us at 250-743-4293.
