Cranberries, or sassamanash as the Algonquians called them, are a welcome sign of autumn. Several varieties – both indigenous and introduced – are found on Vancouver Island. When these crimson delights are blended with fermented apples the resulting cider is a tasty balance of bright acidity and autumn sweetness. As a cider in our Canadian Invasion Series, proceeds help combat invasive plants. Sassamanash was created to accompany your Holiday gatherings. Try it with Thanksgiving dinner, Christmas dinner, and everything in between!
