A story of fruit, foraging and friends.

Bumper

Shipping calculated at checkout.

Bumper is a wild fermented, hand disgorged pét nat. Made in collaboration with our friends at Not Far From The Tree (NFFTT).

NFFTT rescues fruit from forgotten urban plantings in Toronto. Faced with a bumper crop in 2021, they asked us if we could use a few of their heritage apples. Of course we said yes.

The apples in Bumper were picked over multiple weeks from heritage museums and private homes across Toronto. After letting it wild ferment, we bottled it as a pét nat and let it age in glass for 11 months.

Finally, almost a year later, we hand disgorged each bottle to remove the sediment.

What's it like?: Bumper drinks like the finest French cidre, without residual sugar. It smells like papaya, apple skins, guava and orchard leaves in all the best ways.

Your first sip starts with delightfully small, Champagne-like bubbles. It tastes leafy, with a side of juicy white tropical fruits. And it finishes with a hint of farmyard funk, the signature of our native microflora.

It’s worth saving for special friends, but priced to open on a Tuesday.

6.9% ABV | 750mL

Ingredients: Hand-picked, foraged apples. Gluten free

Wild ferment. Zero residual sugar. Hand disgorged. Vegan.

$1000 from this release was donated to Not Far From The Tree.

My Favourite Yet

I'm a big fan of everything Revel does, but this is my favourite yet (right next to the No Fixed Abode collaboration). I hadn't tried a pet nat before and this was delicious, with the same kind of light airy tiny bubble feel you get from champagne.
