Ev's Eclectics

Eclectic: deriving ideas, style, or taste from a broad and diverse range of sources.

Meet the Maker!

My name is Mitchell Everett McCurdy, my friends call me Ev. I wanted to create a brand that allowed me to make weird and wonderful drinks from all of the beautiful things that Niagara grows.

Ev’s Eclectics is a collection of different drinks, done in different styles by a curious winemaker. I graduated from Brock University’s Oenology & Viticulture program in 2018 and having been working under the tutelage of Marc Pistor for the last few years and am bringing my own style to the table with Collab Wine & Beverages. I hope you take a chance on these tasty treats and that you thoroughly enjoy the adventure.

For the Love of Perry

What is Perry? According to Mitchell, a platypus.
Perry is an alcoholic beverage made from fermented pear juice, akin to how cider is made from fermented apple juice. The main difference is pears contain sugars that yeast are unable to consume, leaving behind a small amount of residual sugar that adds body and texture. Pears also have different flavour compounds, more tannin, and more acidity than apples.

With the vast amount of tender fruit in Niagara, Mitch was determined to turn his dreams into a reality with his unique spin on this vintage style. Armed with pears and puns, Mitchell aims to put Perry back on the radar.

What's Next?

With the millions of ideas he has, it can get scary in Mitchell's brain. But within those millions of ideas are more drinks from Ev's for you to enjoy. Different Perry concoctions run amok, as well as fortified wines like Port. We won't spill the beans on what's coming up next from Ev's Eclectics, you'll just have to stay tuned and find out.
