Ice cider

Ice cider is unique in the world because it was born of the Québec terroir, since the cold of our rigorous winters is what concentrates the apples’ natural sugars.

In winter, the apples that are still hanging on the trees are dehydrated by the sun and literately cooked by the wind and cold. They are picked and pressed while still frozen. The must is fermented at low temperature for eight months and bottled.
