Method

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 (10% alc./vol.)

An ice cider with subtle but complex aromas of candied apples and apricots. A smooth yet pleasant acidity with concentrated flavours. Excellent and fine mouth finish.

Serving Suggestion

Serve chilled between 8ºC and 10ºC.

The perfect pairing for foie gras, fine cheeses and desserts.

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!
