Domaine Pinnacle

Eastern Townships

Award-winning Domaine Pinnacle, the world's largest cidre de glace (ice-cider) producer, sits among century-old orchards just outside of Frelighsburg, 1¼ hours southeast of Montréal. The cider is made from apples that are allowed to stay on the tree long after the first frost, then pressed and cold fermented for months.
