Each year LifeCycles works with Spinnakers to produce a unique batch of hard cider. It hits the shelf early in each year and is sold at Spinnakers liquor stores while supplies last. LifeCycles’ cider celebrates the age-old tradition of “use what you have,” and as a result it captures an ever-changing balance of the sweet, acidic and aromatic that, like a homemade cider, is delicious but impossible to repeat.
To make our quince paste we follow a traditional membrillo recipe. After slow roasting the fruit, we stew the tart quince fruit with sugar until it reduces into a thick jelly-like paste. Quince paste has a balanced sweet and sour flavour that is delicious when paired with cheeses or spread on toast. This is a delicious way to enjoy a heritage fruit with ancient roots.
This cider vinegar is pressed from whole apples and fermented with wild yeasts. Spinnakers uses traditional methods to convert alcohol into acetic acid without preservatives, resulting in a full-flavoured and aromatic vinegar. The best apple cider vinegar is made from a mix of varietals. And since our apples are sourced from fruit rescued from backyards across our city you’ll never find a more unique blend. Every batch is an adventure.
