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.

Spirit Tree Estate Reserve Cider, 8% abv

Spirit Tree Draught Cider, 6% abv
The Draught Cider is a traditional medium dry cider produced from a unique blend of Cortland, Gala, Golden Delicious, Northern Spy, Golden Russet and Chisel Jersey apples. It has a nose of green apple, spice and hay. The taste is bold and tart with a long finish hinting of cinnamon and nutmeg. Enjoy Spirit Tree Draught Cider on its own or with pub fare.
Spirit Tree Dry Hopped Cider, 6.9% abv **Currently available in Growlers only**
We have dry hopped our draught cider with a mixture of Ontario grown full cone dried Cascade and Chinook hops. The hops elevate the ciders fruit notes and add a grassiness to the aroma.
The cider finishes with a balanced bitter astringency that appeals to cider & beer drinkers alike.
Spirit Tree Pear Cider, 5.5% abv
Our 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.
Spirit Tree Applelager, 3.5% abv
Lightly fermented and unfiltered, the Applelager has a creamy, yeasty lager aroma. It is sweet with strong fresh apple characteristics and hints of caramel and orange.
Winter Bliss Cider, 6.5% abv
The dark gold colour, caramel-orage flavour, and big alcohol of this heritage cider will warm your soul on a cold winter's day. Winter Bliss is our interpretation of the classic New England style ciders.
Spirit Tree Ice Cider, 12.5% abv
This dark gold cider is rich and full bodied. It has a distinctly sweet, dessert apple aroma with toffee undertones. Sweet and harmoniously balanced, the ice cider has a bold baked apple taste with hints of caramel. Compliments strong cheeses, apple based desserts or great as an aperitif.
Seasonal Ciders *available for a limited time only*
Spirit Tree Pumpkin Cider 6% abv
Our seasonal pumpkin cider is made from pumpkins roasted in our woof fired oven for smokiness and caramelization. The roasted pumpkin is then blended with fresh apple juice and fermented in our cellar. We then add spices and cold filter before bottling this beautiful cider once a year as a holiday treat. Spirit Tree Pumpkin Cider is smooth and spicy with a great apple finish. It tastes like pumpkin pie in a bottle!
Dog Days of Cider 6.5% abv
A light rose cider made from crab apples and Ida Red apples macerated on their skins before primary fermentation. Surprisingly smooth cider with sharp finish. Hints of cherry and red currants. This off dry cider has a nice acid / tannin balance that is very refreshing when served cold on a hot summers day.
Spirit Tree Sparkling Crabapple 5.5% abv ** Currently Unavailable **
With a refreshingly sweet tart flavour profile, this sparkling cider is made from 100% hand-picked Ontario crabapples and is fantastic as an apertif, with spicy food, or on its own.
