Craft ciders made on site with Ontario apples, pears & seasonal flavours.

What is Cider?

Cider is drink made from crushed fruit, typically apples. There are two types of cider: Sweet Cider (non-alcoholic) and Hard Cider (alcoholic). 

 

Sweet cider is the raw fresh juice from pressed apples. It is usually a blend of apples produced from quality, clean apples picked from the tree. 

 

Hard cider is the alcoholic beverage produced by fermenting fresh sweet cider. 

All cider is gluten-free.

Cider has become one of the fastest growing drink categories in Ontario.

Sweet Cider

Spirit Tree is one of Ontario's longest running cideries.

At Spirit Tree Estate Cidery, our goal is to produce an array of quality beverages for the discriminating consumer, and reignite the passion for hard cider that has been evident since the 19th century.
