Using the natural winter cold of Northern Sweden we concentrate apple juice om the best Swedish apples and ferment the sweet must into an ice wine, an ice cider, with equal parts fresh apple acidity and warm autumnal apple sweetness.
Brännland Iscider 2017
Brännland Iscider is the core of Brännland Cider. We work with the best Swedish apple growers to find the varieties that are best suited for making our ice cider. The apples are pressed in December, the juice frozen and concentrated using the natural winter temperatures in our part of Sweden. The concentrate, starting at 34-36 Brix is fermented for 10-12 weeks, aged for three months in steel tanks and then bottled. Brännland Iscider is, as we see it, the ultimate expression of Swedish apples in liquid form. A combination of warm sweetness balanced by an acidity that makes Brännland Iscider useful in a wide variety of gastronomic pairings.
