Limited edition ice ciders from Brännland Cider.
Brännland Isicder PLEX 2018
In 2016, Swedish artist Petter and Brännland Cider started a conversation on northern orchards and Swedish cider.
The conversation ranged from adoption of apple trees in Brännland Ciders orchard in Västerbotten to the creation of a new ice cider to commemorate Petters 20th anniversary as an artist in 2018.
In the fall of 2018 we released the first vintage in a limited edition. The bottles were sold within a matter of days. Soon after release we decided to expand the project to become an annual release and so we present our third collaborative vintage the Brännland Iscider PLEX 2018.
PLEX iscider fermented slowly in the spring of 2019 and was then aged for 24 months on two small 114 liter oak barrels, made from Transylvanian oak.
Petter about PLEX iscider 2018:
I am impressed with how the PLEX iscider is developing. The prolonged ageing has added depth and weight to the Bottled wine. Fantastic. This year we’ve also bottled 48 magnums for longer ageing or for opening for special occasions.
