Lekker Cider Co. was born in August 2018; inspired by Brendan’s ever-flowing creativity and entrepreneurial drive, and Liz’’s curiosity around all things food and drink, as well as her heart for hospitality.

Lekker’s name is inspired from South African culture, where family heritage runs deep. Used as slang in describing that which is tasty, delicious and local - we took this philosophy and ran with it. We strive to live up to the sentiment in our cider making and lifestyles, knowing that it is the creating, sharing, exploring and giving back that goes into making the lekker times.

Uncommon Cider

 

Uncommon Cider Co. claims to be Western Canada’s first urban cidery, located in Calgary, Alberta. The beginning of Uncommon started well over ten years ago.Brodie Thomas was living overseas in England when he was first introduced to true full-juice, English-style cider. After falling in love with the depth of ciders in England, he started to make his own (very badly) while living in Cornwall, UK. Brodie fell in love with the process of cider and having to wait until the next year to try again. Once he moved back to Calgary, Alberta he continued to make cider using all of the excess apples he found in neighborhoods around Calgary. It may have taken a long time, but finally Uncommon was born.
