For nearly 150 years , the cider flows in life and in the veins of the Demoy family. Passionate about cider production, Robert and Joelle Demoy leave their native Britain in the late 1970s to settle in Quebec and thus found the Cidrerie du Minot in Hemmingford in 1987.

The mission had given Suzanne Bergeron Drouin and Tony, the owners, is to make you discover the artisan food products of small producers of Quebec. Passionates by regional food Quebec and driven by the desire to share it, they started the adventure in 1998 at Maisonneuve Market, then with a counter to the Atwater and Jean-Talon markets in 1999 .
