Additional Notes: The Five Acre by MackIntosh Ciderhouse (Flying Canoe) is a traditional cider made simply with apples and hard work. Lightly carbonated with bitter sharp apples, is very clean and apple juice focused. Doesn’t taste alcoholic at all so be cautious while drinking this! Research the history of the name and the 5 acre rule in Ontario that has at least for now been suspended.
