WHAT WE DO


Txotx Imports was founded as a Vancouver based importer of craft food and alcohol. We've expanded into domestic cidery representation and cider education, consulting, and menu curation. We're passionate about helping the growing cider market in BC. We are hosting the BC Cider Festival in collaboration with Richard Massey Wines, and we run the ongoing pop-up cider bar Orchard and the Sea. Contact us about cider education for companies or events. We can also help you build your restaurant's cider program by consulting your bar staff or curating a menu to your needs.



BACK TO BASICS


We got our start in the Basque Country of northern Spain. There is a deep respect for local ingredients and traditional methods there. Dry and complex apple cider naturally fermented in ancient oak barrels, bright and cleansing Txakoli born along sea-swept cliff-side vineyards, and the world’s finest seafood hand-picked and preserved at the height of its excellence. We understand that the most complex and beautiful products are made with a light touch and a whole lot of love for the land of their birth. Though we've expanded past the Basque Country we still carry their ethos.



PENDER GROCERY


Txotx Imports has opened their first retail space in downtown Vancouver at 345 West Pender, near the corner of Homer and Pender. We're proud to have restored this beautiful heritage space which includes a ghost sign from the Daily World newspaper that hadn't been seen since 1908. Expect specialty imports, local craft products, organic produce, and everyday items.

ORCHARD AND THE SEA


Every Friday and Saturday night, Txotx Imports will transform Birds & the Beets into Orchard & the Sea; BC's first and only craft cider house and restaurant. Committed to serving the best ciders from local and international producers, paired with expertly hand-crafted small plates.
