A Love for Apples


Growing up in King's County, Nova Scotia

Born in the "Apple Capital" of Nova Scotia, Berwick, Nick McDow, owner and operator of King's Barrel Imports, grew up around apple orchards. Like many others from Kings County, his connection to apples is one based on history and culture. Apples in Nova Scotia date back to the first settlements of North America and where there were apples, surely came cider.

The apple industry in Nova Scotia was the bedrock of it's economy for quite some time. Nova Scotia was internationally renown for producing some of the best apples in the world. 

Now, like many other North American apple growing regions, Nova Scotia is seeing a renascence of cider. With this in mind, King's Barrel Imports is an homage to that history and culture of Nova Scotia.
