About Nick: Growing up in the Annapolis Valley, surrounded by old and new orchards, Nick McDow began to wonder why cider wasn’t the drink of choice. After working in both the wine and beer industries, he decided to focus on cider, so in 2014 he took the Cider Appreciation and Production course at Cornell University with Peter Mitchell. After that Nick decided to go to Herefordshire, England to work a Harvest season with the renowned producers Ross-on-Wye Cider and Perry. From there, he started a small agency, King’s Barrel Imports, dedicated to representing cideries from around the world in Nova Scotia.
