Givré

Ice Cider

Fluid, fresh, rich and perfectly balanced: Givré is incomparable. It is soft on the palate, with a velvety, smooth mouth feel.

Tasting notes:

Dare to savour Givré with foie gras poêlé, goat cheese or blue cheese. Givré is most expressive at the beginning or end of a meal. As an apéritif or with a slightly chocolaty raspberry or apple desert, Givré will send shivers down your spine.

Serving notes:

Serve well chilled (8-10°C, 46-50°F).
For an extra dash of elegance, frost glasses before serving.

Most apples used for this ice cider are of the McIntosh and Cortland variety, though Spartan, Lobo and Empire are also added. More than fifty apples need to be pressed to produce one bottle of this nectar! Apples and must are left out to freeze naturally in our Canadian winter (-40°C). In January, extracts of highly concentrated juice rich in flavours and aromas is obtained by cryo-extraction and then fermented. This all-natural product has a residual sugar content of 135g/L from the fruit, which gives it a soft sweetness.
