Cidrerie du Vulcain

At Cidrerie du Vulcain, the Vulcain butterfly serves as more than just a symbol; it's a cherished companion during harvest season, fluttering amidst the orchards and aiding in the collection of fallen fruits. Situated in the Friborg region of Switzerland, the cidery sources apples, pears, and quinces from local orchards boasting old, untreated varieties grown on lofty stems. This commitment to traditional agriculture not only yields nuanced aromas thanks to the region's cool climate and diverse soils but also contributes to preserving the region's rich biodiversity and cultural heritage. By directly purchasing fruits from producers and even participating in harvests, the cidery not only supports local growers but also helps revive abandoned orchards.
