This is more of a beer store (or cider store, if you will) than a destination. It is located in a very rural town in Quebec (googlemaps got our directions wrong). It is an idyllic wooden tasting room right alongside the orchard. A nice, open space, well-decorated, and even the bathrooms were really nice. They served us 4 different samples - one of the sparkling ciders, a still cider, Neige Premiere, and Neige Recolte D’Hiver. The staff was very knowledgeable about each cider. Then you can buy their ciders- they do offer at least a couple that are only available at the cidery and it looked like they had quite a few different vintages of some of the Neiges. Obviously their cider speaks for itself. As someone who does not have access to their ciders, it was a great (and expensive) stop, but for others it is probably not as exciting.

Stopped on the way from Montreal to Vermont. Pretty cool shop with a broad selection of their own wares. No tasting kits or anything. Free tastings of ciders but kind of a cold atmosphere. We were the only two people there and felt like we were putting them out (particularly compared to salamandres). Not really worth a second visit, imo.

Just tucked over the border in Canada sits La Face Cachee de la Pomme. A modern tasting room sits among the orchard. Inside is a friendly staff that will guide you through a tasting of some of their ice cider and ciders. Pretty much all of their selection is available for purchase... a bit pricey, but better prices than the Canadian liquor stores. La Face puts out the best stuff and this is the place to visit for it.

A large modern feeling tasting room with a room in the back for classes. The person working when we visited wasn’t particularly knowledgeable but was quite friendly. All of their ciders were available for both sample and purchase. Obviously they are a bit expensive but well worth it IMO.

Beautiful space with a big open feel, modern and elegant. The staff here is generally very friendly, and usually speaks English rather well (or at least well enough to do a tasting for you). Bottle prices are pretty good, and there is often some vintage stuff that you simply would not find anywhere else. Certainly worth a visit, and the proximity to a couple of other cideries makes Hemmingford a nice stop en route to Montreal (or as we usually do, on the way home).

Yup, this place rocks! Where ice cider was born and everything they have here is quality. A very informative and friendly tasting and the people pouring it know their stuff. Pretty swanky bathrooms in here, although I suspect some people will be put off by the deer hoof coat hooks. There are a fewf other foodstuff for sale inside and they don’t skimp on the sampling of the products either. They have lots of small batch stuff that you can only get here as well, which is kind of nice to see.

My second time here, this place continues to be fun. Though it seems near impossible to wring a tour out of them, they are more than eager to give you (multiple, if you ask) tastes of all their products, including the $33 Neige Eternelle and $43 Frimas. They must pour $5-10 worth of cider for each person there. Tough to complain about that, especially when the product is so unbelievably good!

One of th greatest ice cider producers. Very marketing oriented, modern, I can’t say I appreciate the considerable sums they demand for a taste of their products, but they are top notch and the visit is well structured and very educative. Friendly people, but clearly in it for the money and fame as much as by passion.

Just a few yards away from Hemmingford village on fabulous old route 202, a great drive for foodies and drunks like me. The cidery tasting room/tower is made to resemble the wooden crates they use to store apples. No expense is spared for décor here, even the art in the bathroom is cool. They often host special events, my favorite being "Classe Neige", where you actually go outside in the cold and taste apples still frozen on the trees (they actually look more like vines). Discounts for on-premises purchases are negligible, but they usually have a cider or two you can’t get anywhere else, and tastings can either be free or quite pricey, depending on the mood of the person at the register. No tours are given unless it’s a special event or if you come with a group and reserve. Say hi to the family dog usually hanging around the parking lot.

Like CapFlu, one of the things I note most immediately is the upscale "classy" details and general feel of the place -- this is no working-class cidery. But I feel that the quality of the product justifies the opulence to some extent, even if I felt more at home in the rustic cellars of Jodoin. This is worth a visit mostly for the tour, and for the possibility of rare vintages or experiments that may not be sold elsewhere. The regular line (Frimas, Neige, Neige Eternelle) is IMHO the cream of the cider world.
