Sent om cider

Klara Peterson & Axel Bäck, Baggensudden, Stockholm

Axel and Klara loves to drink good stuff and wanted to try out what they could do with Swedish apples.

In 2016 they made their first small batch cider from apples picked in gardens in their neighborhood. It went alright, but they felt they needed to learn more to take the result to another level.

That said, they went up to Jämtland and Eldrimmner for a year, to deep dive in to the world of fruit and what you can do with it.

During this year they had a lot of work practice and went making cider with Agathe Letelier and the master Cyril Zangs in Normandie and Aeblerov in Denmark. They also made wine in the Basque country, Kombucha in Stockholm and beer in Jämtland.

So, in 2018 they were well prepared, and managed to produce 800 liter of lovely cider.

They pick wild apples in their neighborhoods just outside Stockholm and also different suitable varieties in Baskemölla, Skåne. All apples being organic of course.

After picking they store the apples for 2 months.

They apply the same approach as in natural winemaking for their cider, fermentation with natural yeasts and no sulfites added. They finish the fermentation in bottle without any dosage, so it’s apple ‘Petnat’.

This cider is fresh, fruity, clean and very well balanced. Very much the style of cider we enjoy drinking a lot of.
