Create an event to remember!
We at Merridale love a good party, and we are thrilled to help bring your special occasion to life. Our bistro, pondside gazebo, the outpost or the distillery – each of these locations can be booked to suit your bachelorette, stag, company mixer, birthday party or any other occasion you have in mind. We love new ideas and are always delighted to help create a private function customized to meet your needs. This may include tastings, appetizers, an orchard picnic, or even a mini-seminar on distilling – bring your ideas and contact us today!

Tour, Tasting and Lunch Packages
For groups of 10 or more, we offer guided tours of our cellar, distillery and grounds. You will be led through our process of production from beginning to end. Along the way you will taste ciders, spirits and fortifieds. Add a meal onto your package and receive a discount on the tour price!
After your tour, enjoy a farm-to-table meal and drink pairing experience. Depending on time of year and menu choice, meals may be served in a private area of the orchard, bistro, or cookhouse area of the patio. As our menus change with seasonality of ingredients, please ask for our current menu when booking.
Little Red Wagon Picnic
Share food, drinks, and laughs in a private area of the orchard reserved just for you - perfect for stagettes, family gatherings, or small parties of 30 or less seeking privacy from the bustle of the bistro. We provide you with a little red wagon full of everything you need for your summer picnic: salads, sandwiches, optional desserts and appies, plus plates, cutlery, cups, and napkins. Of course, growlers of cider, beer and wine can be added to your picnic too! For the full Merridale experience, ask us about adding on a private guided tour and tasting to this package.
Dinners and Private Events
Host your next gathering in the Merridale bistro! Our farmhouse is the perfect setting for birthday parties, corporate events, holiday celebrations, and more. Enjoy a hand-crafted meal on the back deck or patio overlooking the orchard, or cocktail hour in our lounge. Our culinary team has designed menus to suit any occasion. Ask us about booking the entire farmhouse for a private event, or simply reserving a portion of the bistro.
