Fresh Pressed Sweet Apple Cider – Winner of 2011 Ontario Sweet Cider Competition
Our cider is made with only tree-picked apples and contains no dropped apples (apples that have fallen on the ground). The cider is treated with our Cidersure UV Processor prior to being bottled. This is an FDA approved process that is an equally safe alternative to heat pasteurization. UV treatment is a non-thermal process that meets FDA guidelines to obtain a 5-log reduction in pertinent pathogens. This is equivalent to being 99.999% safe. By not heating the cider, we can preserve all of the flavour, nutrients and quality of the cider while still creating a safe to drink product. We offer our traditional blended cider along with several single varietal ciders such as Crabapple and Gala in season.
Sparkling Sweet Apple Cider
Our sweet cider carbonated in a 750 ml bottle. Perfect for celebrations.
We currently offer five varieties of hard cider. Hard cider is the alcoholic beverage produced by fermenting fresh apple juice (Sweet Cider).
Cellar-aged for 4 to 6 months, our new Draught Cider is bright and clear with a pale straw colour and medium effervescence. It is off-dry with a nose of straw and strong apple flavours, mineral tones and a clean crisp finish. 6% alc. vol., 341 bottle
Lightly fermented and unfiltered, the Apelager has a creamy, yeasty lager aroma. It is sweet with strong fresh apple characteristics and hints of caramel and orange. 3% alc. vol., 341 ml
Our unfiltered Somerset-style Perry is lightly effervescent and hazy straw in colour. Semi-sweet with a floral citrus nose, it has canned pear flavours and a sharp finish. Try it with a cream sauce or soft-ripened cheeses. 6% alc. vol., 341 bottle
Estate Reserve Cider
This still (non-carbonated) cider is produced exclusively from Spirit Tree grown apples from our Cider Block (Spy, Russet, Yarlington Mills, Chisel Jersey and other cider varietals). It is fermented dry and aged in toasted oak casks to impart hints of spice and oak character. The crisp acidity makes it a great partner to rich foods. 8% alc. vol, 750 ml bottle
Made from apple juice cryo-concentrated naturally during the winter months to a super-sweet intense nectar, our Ice Cider has distinct dessert apple aromas with a clean and crisp finish. Great for cheese, desserts or by the fire. 12.5% alc. vol., 100 ml bottle/375 ml bottle
