This ice cider (10%/37.5cl) is made in Northern Sweden where the winter temperatures and the apples grown there create the basic components for this delicious drink.

Brännlands odling

The company was started in 2010 with the aim of making cider using apples grown in the cold climate of Northern Sweden. After two years of trial and error the company came to the conclusion that ice cider was the best product to make.

Ice cider is ice-wine made with apples instead of grapes. It was first made in Quebec, Canada, in the early 1990s, with a denomination of quality established in the Canadian city in 2005.

The denomination states that apple juice made to make ice cider must be concentrated with natural cold. The apple juice for Brännland Cider is frozen using the naturally cold temperatures of January and February.

The wine has a deep golden yellow colour, a clean nose and notes of stone fruit, fresh green apples and hints of nuttiness. A sweet wine, it pairs well with desserts, cheeses – such as Comte, and even savory foods.
