What is Cider
Cider is a beverage produced by fermented fruit, except grapes. The most widespread and consumed cider is the one deriving from the fermentation of apples. Its birth dates back to medieval times, when it was considered a luxury good. Nowadays it is proposed as a fresh drink, perfect to be enjoyed with friends in any moment of the day.
Cider is yellow-coloured and slightly alcoholic (alcohol content varies from 4% to 11%). It can be extra-dry, dry, medium, sweet and have different organoleptic features. The wide variety of these features depends on the apple blended, the recipes and the production method adopted. By using Charmat Method the product ferments in autoclaves, while with Classical Method the product ferments in bottles.
