APPLE CIDER VINEGAR

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.

BACKYARD BLEND CIDER

LifeCycles’ has created a new hard cider crafted by Spinnakers’ illustrious brewers that is designed to accentuate the diversity of apple varieties harvested by fruit tree project. 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.

QUINCE PASTE

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.
