What is Ice Cider?

Ice Cider was developed in Quebec, Canada in the early 1990s and it is essentially an ice-wine made using apples instead of grapes. In 2005 a denomination of quality was established in Quebec. The denomination states that the apple juice used to make Ice Cider should be concentrated with the help of natural cold only.

Ice Cider and gastronomy

Our Ice Cider is very recognisable as a classic dessert wine but sets itself apart from many other sweet wines by its pronounced freshness and acidity. It is a great pairing to classic desserts and pairs equally well with cheeses like Comté. Ice Cider also works as an aperitif because of the acidity and freshness which opens up new and exciting combinations with savory foods.

The vision of a northern terroir

With the creation of an entirely new ice cider tradition comes the vision of creating a renewed apple tradition of high quality apples grown specifically for ice cider in northern Sweden. This is a unique proposition since there have been no orchards in commercial operation in the north for decades (perhaps up to a century) and we have the opportunity and the responsibility to shape a new apple and ice cider culture.
