McIntosh, Cortland, Empire, Liberty, Trent.

Method (Natural Effervescence)

Ice cider is produced in winter through cryoextraction, which consists in freezing the must then extracting sweet, flavourful and concentrated syrup. The must is fermented at low temperatures for 6 to 8 months.

Tasting Notes (7.5 % alc./vol.)

A sparkling ice cider that exudes subtle and complex aromas of candied apples and apricots. As for aerial notes, the palate is seduced by its fine, natural bubbles and slight acidity.

Serving Suggestion

Serve chilled between 6ºC and 8ºC

Great on its own, as an aperitif or a nightcap, it’s also the perfect companion for foie gras, fine cheeses and fruit or chocolate desserts. Very tasty when served with cheesecake and red fruit coulis.

Our unique process

WHEN PASSION AND EXPERTISE SERVE THE TASTE

One of the great features of the cider of Minot is the use of the  closed-tank method rarely used in the production of sparkling cider in Quebec. 

The closed-tank method produces fine sparkling ciders, in which the signature of the apple dominates. Several reasons can be given for this, including minimized handling and a closed circuit which prevents air from altering the cider. The entire bouquet of apple thus, ends up in the bottle!
