      Don't bother - ridiculously expensive and tastes very sweet without structure. We tried some at Xmas (available at LCBO) and NOBODY wanted more than one taste.

        I tried the Domaine Pinnacle iced cider and though sweet it had a good amount of acidity to balance it.

      I bought some apple cider vinegar at Whole Foods by the name of Filsinger's from Ayton, Ontario- I guess made from their orchards. They also sell huge bottles of cider which I'm sorely tempted to try .

        For fresh pressed (pasteurized) I really like Algoma Orchards cider.

          Do you mean hard cider or the fresh pressed stuff (to drink on its own or add your own mulling spices and possibly a kick)?

            the Best apple cider that I've had recently is from the Apple Factory

              I tried an amazing apple cider at the Wychwood Barns recently. I will try and google to get the name of it. If successful I will report back.

                  Ferri's cider isn't bad, either. Nice varietal apples fresh from storage, too. Heritage Rd. north of Steeles in Brampton.

                  Waupoos is my favourite. Slighty sweet and very crisp with ample apple flavours. And at 6.5%, it makes you feel... good!

                      Many LCBO outlets carry it. Use the search function at lcbo.ca to check availability.

                        It sure ain't cheap, but Waupoos is tasty.
