Artisan Cidriculteur.

All of the company's products are made from apples frozen naturally (via cryoextraction) or the natural apple juice frozen outside (cryoconcentration) which it concentrates the sugar and fruit flavors. As artisan cidriculteurs all the apples are grown in our orchard. Development, pressing and bottling of the cider happens here at the Cidrerie Cryo. The entire process is under the careful supervision of Hugo Poliquin, owner and cider maker.
