Cidrerie du Vulcain

The Cidrerie du Vulcain processes fruit from the local Friborg orchard, namely apples, pears and quinces of old varieties grown on high stems and untreated. The Friborg terroir with its cool climate and the diversity of its soils allows an expression of very beautiful nuances in the aromas, this all the more on the old high-stem trees.

The company's flagship products are sparkling cider partially fermented using the "guillage" technique of Clairette de Die or corked cider from Normandy and Brittany. The ciders are available in different cuvées from one year to the next, depending on the varieties available. These ciders are always "pure juice", fermented on their wild yeasts and coarsely filtered. Pasteurized apple juice and pear juice are also produced, in 5 or 10 liter cartons. The cider vinegar and fine apple aged in barrels are still confidential, but their production will be expanded little by little. The cider house also offers custom pressing and pasteurization services for owners wishing to obtain juice from their own fruit. - Jacques Perritaz
